If you are finding it increasingly difficult to make your mortgage payments or have even fallen behind, you should know you have options. When you purchased your home or property, it was put up as collateral to the bank from which you borrowed money. This allows your lender to take control of your property through foreclosure should you default on your payments. However, you may be able to stop foreclosure by filing for bankruptcy with the assistance of a foreclosure attorney.
Who Qualifies for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
- A regular source of income
- Sufficient income to cover regular payments as well as living expenses
- Debts below Chapter 13 statutory caps
How does Bankruptcy Stop Foreclosure?
Once your attorney determines that you qualify for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and you file, you’ll be granted an automatic stay. This will stop all creditor activity, including foreclosure. You will have the opportunity to create a payment plan with the assistance of your attorney. This plan will help you catch up on your missed payments over the space of three to five years and eliminate other debts.
