My parents are coming to an end of paying off their house mortgage but there is still a small portion left to pay (less than six figures). Now that the government has taken control, there is little chance for a default correct? What's the worse that can happen? Also, what will happen realistically... I'm not too worried cause the mortgage is small now and my parents don't throw their money around. They make 6 figures too so that helps. Still though, I'm just curious what is likely to happen and the worse case scenario.
