DuPage County Lien Stripping Lawyer Shows You How to Remove Your Second Mortgage
Chapter 13 reorganization consumer bankruptcy strategies are a viable option for many homeowners who are lagging far behind in mortgage payments. In the short term, when you file for Chapter 13, the automatic stay (stop) against foreclosure action is automatically imposed. The automatic stay covers all collections actions, including wage garnishments, car or truck repossession and creditor harassment. Chapter 13 gives you the opportunity to repay your past due mortgage balance over a comfortable three- to five-year time frame.
Strip Off a Second Mortgage to Get Your House Payments Back Under Control
Many people borrowed heavily against the increased equity in their homes, only to see their equity disappear when property values dropped. Unfortunately, banks still expect the homeowner to repay the new, higher mortgage amount. Chapter 13 allows homeowners to strip off the second or third mortgage loan, if they can show that their outstanding first mortgage amount is more than their house is currently worth.
Stripping off your second mortgage can provide valuable savings that can mean the difference between losing your house to foreclosure or keeping your family in their home.
