Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
I need your help please. I am going through a remoddication on our home loan and through a bankruptcy at the same time. Is the lender more likely to work with us on the remodification if we include the home in the bankruptcy? OR
Is it best to not include the home and the back mortage payments in the bankruptcy and see what will happen with the remodification.
Either way we want to keep the house.
What is the beat route to take to keep our house?
Yes, the refileing will include the home.
The first filing did not because we had no idea about remodification.
Since learning about a possible remodificaion of our home loan with countrywide it maybe possible to keep our house.
If we include the back mortage payments in the BR can we still loose the home if we are not approved for the remodification.
I also know that in remodification the lender can put the back payments on the end of the loan but that is not a sure thing.
