How to Stop Foreclosures

Save Your Home From ForeclosureChapter 13 Bankruptcy Will Stop Sheriff or Foreclosure Sales!

Foreclosures are everywhere.  People have fallen behind with  mortgage payments just like you.  You have sent the mortgage  modification documents to the mortgage company over and over again.   You think your mortgage company is giving you the run  around in the mortgage modification process?  It happens too often. The problem is trying to explain your situation and work something out with the lender.  THEY DO NOT CARE!    You made an agreement with them and they want their money or they   want your home.  You don't want to be out on the street and homeless.  You want to save your home from foreclosure.   

Chapter 13 bankruptcy can halt home foreclosure in its tracks!

Filing bankruptcy STOPS the foreclosure process!   Chapter 13 bankruptcy gives you an opportunity to save the home.  However, the unfortunate reality is that many people delay seeking representation and getting answers to their Chapter 13 bankruptcy questions.  They rely on the representations from mortgage brokers, their mortgage company, or third parties who promise that they can procure some type of mortgage modification rather than independent legal counsel who is looking out for you.

What Is Real Estate Foreclosure?

Real estate foreclosure is a legal proceeding in which a creditor pursues legal action to take real estate against which they have loaned money and the debtor has defaulted on his or her obligation to make payments.  If the creditor sells the real estate at the sheriff sale to try and satisfy their loan, any remaining balance after the liquidation (sale) is called a deficiency balance. In most states, Debtors are still obligated to pay the deficiency balance even after they lose the property. 

How Does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Stop Foreclosure?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy provides for an automatic stay, which halts all collection efforts including the foreclosure legal proceedings or the sheriff sale of your real estate.  Indiana is a judicial foreclosure state, which means that Indiana residents still own their real estate until the sheriff sale is over.   Generally, upon notification of a bankruptcy filing, the mortgage company is REQUIRED to remove the real estate from the sheriff sale and comply with the Debtor’s repayment plan under chapter 13 bankruptcy.  

For example, a Debtor who was 8  months delinquent on mortgage payments where the payments are approx $800.00 per month,  could file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and pay back the $6400.00 delinquency plus the regular mortgage payments over the plan life. Assuming you can afford the repayment plan, the mortgage company has no choice.  The mortgage company must allow to you to cure your mortgage arrearage.

What should you do now?

If you face foreclosure or a sheriff sale unfortunately time is not on your side; you may need to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy immediately. If I am going to help you, we need to talk as soon as possible.
