Recourse Debt Versus Non-Recourse Debt in Commercial Real Estate

Recourse debt, also referred to as a recourse loan refers to a debt where the lender is able to claim the borrower’s assets if he or she fails to pay back the debt to its full amount. Unlike recourse debt, with non-recourse loans the lender is only allowed to collect the collateral but has no right to go after the borrower’s other personal assets.
