Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Depends on the state that you live in. I am assuming that the bank lifted the automatic stay so that it could proceed with the foreclosure? Was there a non-judicial foreclosure clause in the mortgage agreement?
We are in the state of California.
I don't know if there was a non-judicial foreclosure clause or even what that means?
So an automatic stay??? I suppose they have lifted it. I really don't know. We were notified by the bank before the discharge that they denied a modification filed back in January, 09. The man from the bank just said to me the case would be closed for the modification. So we are waiting for a paper from them and just are hoping it is not the Sheriff giving us 24 hours to move. I know we must leave at some point but with my husband out of work a few more months would give him time to get a job.
