How Can Filing for Bankruptcy Help Me Stop Foreclosure?
If you want to keep your home, filing for bankruptcy will stop any foreclosure proceedings. However, if you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your lender will be able to reinitiate foreclosure proceedings. Therefore, if you want to try to avoid foreclosure and keep your home, Chapter 13 bankruptcy will be your best option. Under Chapter 13, you will be obligated to repay your past due mortgage over a three- to five-year period, while keeping current on your payments.
Chapter 13 offers other benefits for a homeowner who is delinquent on his or her mortgage. One such advantage is that your lender has little discretion to reject your proposed repayment plan. Another major advantage of Chapter 13 is that you may be able to discharge a second or additional mortgage. If the value of your home is worth less than the value of your first mortgage, your second mortgage is not secured and can be discharged in bankruptcy. This process is known as lien-stripping and can be a major benefit to homeowners in financial trouble.
