Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Bankruptcy can eliminate any debts attached to your home. This includes mortgage which can take a serious toll on homeowners. Chapter 7 bankruptcy also grants the possibility of having certain tax liabilities forgiven. These are losses that a lender takes on due to a homeowner’s default.
Under a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, there’s a chance that you might not be able to keep your home. Additionally, you may have to give up some of your possessions or assets to pay back part of the debt. However, when done properly, this form of bankruptcy may allow you to keep up to $75,000 in equity.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy will allow you to set up a payment plan which you can use as a method to pay off your debt. While you’ll need enough money to pay off both your debt and regular mortgage payments, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can help you prevent second or even third mortgage payments.
One drawback of this type of bankruptcy, however, is that the lender may file a motion to remove the automatic stay. If successful then the court can move forward in conducting the sale of your home. In this scenario, you may not have enough time to get all your matters into order.
