"Any unsecured bond is non-recourse. Non-recourse simply means the obligation does not grant a security interest in title to some property. Likely your bonds are/were non-recourse."

Joel:

Are you sure, you statement is completely the opposite of my understanding. It is my understanding that ton-recourse debt is secured debt. The collateral is the lender's only security....meaning that the lender can't not file a lean against the borrower or force bankruptcy.

From Wikipedia......

"Non-recourse debt or a non-recourse loan is a secured loan (debt) that is secured by a pledge of collateral, typically real property, but for which the borrower is not personally liable. If the borrower defaults, the lender/issuer can seize the collateral, but the lender's recovery is limited to the collateral. Thus, non-recourse debt is typically limited to 50% or 60% loan-to-value ratios,[citation needed] so that the property itself provides "overcollateralization" of the loan."
