Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If you didn't reaffirm the debt for the mortgage and continue making payments, the lender can foreclose on the property and sell the house to pay the debt/mortgage loan balance.
Bankruptcy does not erase debts.....it just erases the debtor's obligation to pay the debt. So, your mortgage lien remains.....and the lender can foreclose on the property if the loan isn't being paid. However, you are not legally obligated to pay the debt if you were discharged.
