Sometimes, even after examining the numbers every way possible, the end result stays the same: You cannot afford to keep your home even with the help of Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If your income is drastically reduced or if your mortgage is one debt too many in a Chapter 13 reorganization, what are your options?
Can I Avoid Having a Foreclosure Show Up on My Credit Report?
If you short sell your home, you can avoid foreclosing on it altogether. However, there are several factors you should consider. For example, can you find a buyer ready to buy your home, but for less than you owe on your mortgage?
In situations where both you and the bank are aware that your home may be worth less than when you bought it, you may be able to short sell your house. If the bank approves of the short sale (and you must have their approval), you may be able to avoid foreclosure and simultaneously disentangle yourself from your mortgage obligations.
You may also consider a deed in lieu of foreclosure. That means you can give up all claim to the house and hand the deed to the mortgage holder. The bank may not want the property, but it may be the best option for both you and the bank.
Whatever you decide to do, do not make a final decision or sign papers for a short sale or a deed in lieu of foreclosure until you have reviewed your decision and all documents with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
