Helping You Keep Your Property
If certain conditions are met during and after bankruptcy, you may be able to keep your real estate, car and other property. These conditions include:
- You must be able to meet your house and car payments after bankruptcy. If you cannot meet those payments, your house may go into foreclosure or your car may be repossessed or liquidated.
- You must be able to meet your other payments with the financial resources available to you. If you cannot meet all of your payments after bankruptcy, you may need to sell your home or your vehicle.
Even if you cannot meet your payments, there are other options available to you to help you keep your property. For example, you may be able to negotiate a payment plan with your creditors to help you pay back any nonexempt equity on your house or car. You may also consider negotiating with creditors for a loan modification to make payment possible.
