If monthly house payments are not received on time, the financial institution will file for a foreclosure on the property. Not a thing short of paying the mortgage as agreed is assured block the foreclosure proceedings. It will be very same for anybody who has not paid their hom

Many times, consumers will have to pick between filing for bankruptcy or allowing their mortgage lender to foreclose their property.  If monthly house payments are not made on time, the lender will likely file for a foreclosure on the home.  Not a thing shy of paying for the mortgage on time is guaranteed stop the foreclosure process.  Home loans are just like car loans, if you can not make your payments you always will lose it.  Foreclosure is essentially the same for anyone who has not been able to pay his house loan, the home loan lender can kick the occupants out onto the street and sell it to get back their loses.

Bankruptcy is a legal act that is registered by a person who is not able to pay her debt.  Once bankruptcy is filed, all active civil proceedings associated with the home loan are stopped.  As such, a home loan bank must interrupt all collection processes including, but not limited to, foreclosure.  However, a mortgage company may be given a pass from the mandatory stay, and once it is allowed, can continue with the foreclosure action.  Declaring Bankruptcy will not stop foreclosure and you have to pay back your loan.  Bankruptcy simply makes the process of foreclosure proceed more slowly; it can not solve the underlying issues.

While bankruptcy does not halt foreclosure permanently, it will allow a person enough time to repay the over due or at least it can make it little more accessible to pay back a home loan.  Bankruptcy requires a mortgage to freeze foreclosure actions, a mortgage payer has a bit of time to produce the money necessary to pay back the creditor.  The final option for any home owner to file for financial insolvency when the home owner is totally unable to pay their creditors' terms of repayment.  Under insolvency, some debts will likely be dismissed but the home loan will not.  The home owner must be prepared to pay back the mortgage within the given time frame as the debt is guaranteed by real assets.  Also, Chapter 13 insolvency has a fee schedule that is court ordered, that allows the debtor make payments on her home loan to get caught up to date on their balance.

Bankruptcy is not a guarantee.  The home owner must meet certain criteria to qualify and if they do, there will be legal fees incurred.  Possibly, it may cost you more in legal fees than it does to simply knuckle down and continue with making mortgage payments.  If you are considering that filing for bankruptcy may help to solve the situation, a bankruptcy lawyer might be able to answer whatever questions.  Simply put, insolvency is really detailed, the home owner ought not try to do it without assistance from a an attorney.
