How Bankruptcy Can Help You Get A Home Loan Modification

June 19, 2009

Most homeowners who file for bankruptcy in Arlington, Texas, do it to save their homes.  They are aware that by filing for bankruptcy, the mortgage lender will not be able to foreclose on their home and that any pending sale of your home will also be halted immediately. What many homeowners do not know about Dallas bankruptcy law is that bankruptcy can do more than save their homes.

In a way, when a homeowner files for bankruptcy, they can modify their loan by getting rid of a second loan on their mortgage. Currently there is no law allowing the bankruptcy court to modify a loan, but when a second mortgage is removed through a bankruptcy proceeding, it can greatly reduce your monthly mortgage. Also, even after your file for bankruptcy, and your file has been approved by the trustee, you can modify your home loan. For more clarification on how this process works, it is best to consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.


If you are in danger of losing your home, filing for bankruptcy can be a very powerful solution for many homeowners as it can give you the time and resources to renegotiate your mortgage with your lender while saving your home.
