What does Chapter 13 have to do with Foreclosure?

Chapter 13 & Foreclosure

Taking the Necessary Steps to Save Your Home

The fear of losing your home is very real if you are unable to stay on top of mortgage payments. When you fall behind, a lender may take steps to begin foreclosure.

How can Chapter 13 bankruptcy prevent foreclosure?

When you file for Chapter 13, an automatic stay is immediately issued by the court. This means that all collection attempts by creditors must cease, including foreclosure. Even if a foreclosure sale has been scheduled, it must be postponed while the bankruptcy is pending.

Chapter 13 offers homeowners facing foreclosure the following advantages:

  • The ability to catch up on mortgage payments through a repayment plan
  • The cancellation of the foreclosure sale
  • The benefit of not having to pay your second mortgage by completing the repayment plan

The Chapter 13 repayment plan covers a period of three to five years during which you pay off certain debts. Individuals with a high enough income and the desire to save their home can benefit immensely from Chapter 13 for this very reason.
