A loan whereby the lender, in the event of a default, has recourse beyond the collateral pledged to initially secure it. For example, John gave Brian a $50,000 recourse loan using Brian's house as collateral. When John defaulted on the loan, he only had $25,000 of equity remaining after the property was foreclosed upon by the mortgagee of a first mortgage coupled with depressed real estate market conditions. Under the terms of the recourse loan, John has recourse to Brian's other assets to recover the principal.
