A Chapter 13 bankruptcy which reorganizes debts and liabilities is a viable loss mitigation alternative since it may help delay foreclosure until some more feasible solution is formulated, such as obtaining a new loan from a new lender or even a modification from the current lender. Chapter 13 debtors may not modify the terms of a mortgage loan in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case but may reorganize mortgage debt by paying any mortgage loan arrearages in a Chapter 13 plan of repayment.
Filing a bankruptcy case will stop a foreclosure. As mentioned, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case allows homeowners to keep their home by allowing them to repay mortgage arrearages in a Chapter 13 repayment plan. Filing bankruptcy may allow a chance to catch up on mortgage payments and, more importantly, keep a home or residence. Thus, for individuals who have experienced a temporary financial setback, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case may buy enough time for them to get back on their feet.
