Assess Your Options With a Knowledgeable Foreclosure Attorney
Bankruptcy: A bankruptcy filing will immediately stop a foreclosure sale and allow you more time to determine the best course of action with regard to your home or other real estate.
With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you are provided time to “cure” the missed mortgage payments without the threat of foreclosure looming and get yourself back on track. The Chapter 13 bankruptcy can also provide you with a time period up to five years during which you can safely pursue loan modification, without the constant fear of foreclosure.
Other options that may allow you to stop foreclosure and stay in your home include:
- Loan Modifications
- Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure
- Challenging the Foreclosure in Court
