How Can Filing for Bankruptcy Help Protect My Home?

A set of keys, a gavel, and some foreclosure paperwork on a deskWhen late mortgage payments build up over time it leads to foreclosure and then a sheriff sale. Foreclosure is when the lender takes the property back and then sells it in order to receive payment for what is left of the loan. While the first missed mortgage payment won’t lead to this directly, it can sneak up on you faster than you anticipated. The best possible way to protect your home in this scenario is to work with an attorney and file for bankruptcy.

Filing for either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 will both cease foreclosure actions immediately. The automatic stay is put into effect when you file for bankruptcy – even if you have already received an eviction notice, you will be allowed to stay in your home.

Provided a sheriff sale has not already taken place, you can postpone the sale of your home by filing for bankruptcy before the sale date. The specifics of a foreclosure case may vary depending on which chapter you file. This is what makes it so important to consult with your attorney about your situation. There may be more options available to you than just bankruptcy – for instance, you may be able to file for a loan modification or even deed in lieu of foreclosure. Our team will help you find the best plan for you to reach financial freedom.
