Yes if it is still in your name. You will need to sell it for enough to pay the debts or get the agreement to the sale from the Bank.

Yes, you can sell it. If you have not paid the mortgage that sum will appear in the pay off in escrow. The property has a lien on it for the payments. Only your personal obligation to pay was discharged.

If you still own it, you can sell it, provided the lender any any lienholders get paid in full. If the house will not sell for this much, then you can ask the lienholders if they will consider a short sale.

Sooner or later you will need the banks agreement, unless you are going to pay their full balance.
