If your chapter 13 has been discharged how do you refinance your mortgage which fell behind in payments and your home equity which is current in payments?

I am a Loan officer in California-the laws are different in every state & every lender...Typically speaking though, it depends on how long ago you BK was discharged. It also depends on how far behind are you on the house payments. Some lenders will refinance one day after the BK being discharged, while other lenders are 7 years! As far as late payments...they will affect your intrest rate. If you have one 30 day late, or one 60 day late but are now current in your should be able to refi assuming you have equity in the property. I would be more than willing to look at you situation for you if you like. email me at kinjalvs at yahoo .com Sara

Bankruptcy is not claimed on individual loans, a bankruptcy involves all your debt.

The same is true of a home loan.

Before doing that, you should go to your bank and explain your situation. They might be able to take over the loan at a lower interest rate. That way your payments may become smaller. If that doesn't work, maybe call whoever has your laon and explain your situation, see if there's anything they can do. * No. Bankruptcy should be the last resort for a debtor.

Can you keep your house after a bankruptcy?

Not unless your bankruptcy did the right things to allow you to keep it. If you are not in arrears in your mortgage payments before filing, you have to continue making the payments - preferably before the due date.

If you get behind in your post-petition payments due, the bank will apply for relief from the automatic stay and you will lose your house.

If you are behind payments on the car, yes - the company with the loan can repo the car. The same law applies if you had or had not filed bankruptcy. The only thing a bankruptcy can do is 1) protect assets DURING the bankruptcy (Automatic Stay) and 2) allow you to reconfigure the terms of secured loans. (like your car) Speak with an attorney about your specific situation. If you can not find an attorney, contact your local Bar association and they will refer you to one.

If you can not find an attorney, contact your local Bar association and they will refer you to one.

Do you have to be working to file for bankruptcy?

There are three types of bankruptcy namely Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, and Chapter 11 Business Bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy will discharge most types of debts for the average citizen. It will stay on record for ten years, but the major benefit is the stay it provides which prevents creditors from hassling you. On the other hand Chapter 11 bankruptcy is used by businesses, not citizens, to reorganize debts while Chapter 13 bankruptcy is wage earner's bankruptcy, which allows you to repay your debt through a plan. Among these three, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is considered as the best option for people with a steady income, who happen to have fallen behind in loan payments. idk and i dont give rats a**. hahahaha
