How to Avoid Foreclosure by Filing for Bankruptcy

If you are facing foreclosure, but are in a position to resume your payments, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can freeze the foreclosure and give you three to five years to catch up your overdue payments. And of course, you get to keep your house.

There are many options available for you to keep your house as you file for bankruptcy:

  • Equity Exemption: It is stated in Bankruptcy law that there are exemptions allowed for people who are going to file bankruptcy. Married couples can protect up to $35,200 of equity in their home.
  • Repayment: Based on Chapter 13, this provision is about debt repayment/ reorganization that will last for a three year to five year repayment period. This will give you a chance to repay your mortgage debt while at the same time saving your house.
  • Reaffirmation: According to Chapter 7 there is an option to reaffirm your liabilities. This means that you can continue to pay on your home as if a bankruptcy had never been filed.
  • Automatic Stay: As stated by the law, debt collectors are not allowed to gather payments from those individuals who are in the bankruptcy. This applies for both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. This situation, will give you time to rethink and look for possible payment options to keep your home.
  • Negotiation: There is no harm in negotiating. Creditors are often willing to renegotiate the outstanding deficiency.

Stripping Off Second Mortgages

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy can get your second or subsequent mortgages stripped off. Thats right. You can keep your home and totally wipe away a second mortgage if you meet the rules.
