How To Easily Stop Foreclosure, Save Your Home And Repay Your Debt Over Time

Losing one's home to a foreclosure sale can be devastating and demoralizing. It doesn't take much to fall behind on mortgage payments. Job loss, injury, divorce, wage garnishments, personal loans, student loans, credit card payments and many other factors can lead to the inability to make timely payments. Mortgage companies often will not accept any amount other than the amount needed to become completely current. In those situations, reorganization under Chapter 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code can provide a solution to some homeowners.

Chapter 13 allows one to pay his current monthly mortgage payment while making an additional payment to a Chapter 13 trustee. The additional payment to the Chapter 13 trustee includes the arrearage on the mortgage. This allows a person to repay the arrears portion over a period of thirty-six (36) to sixty (60) months. The greatest feature of the reorganization filing is that it stops the foreclosure case dead in its tracks. As long as timely payments are made directly to the mortgage company and to the Chapter 13 trustee, the foreclosure action is stalled and the sale of the home cannot proceed.

Similar to businesses that reorganize under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, Chapter 13 is used by consumers who desire to reorganize. A "Special Report" regarding saving a home in foreclosure is available at http://www.bankruptcylawyerschicago.com. Additionally, an audio version of that same report can be downloaded which provides free, consumer information narrated by David Siegel.

It is important to note that a foreclosure case runs along a scheduled timeline. Reorganization under Chapter 13 may not be available to save a home if a foreclosure sale date has occurred. One should consult with a local Chapter 13 attorney to determine if a Chapter 13 filing is feasible.
