All major financial transactions including the purchase of sale of a home must be approved by the bankruptcy trustee before any action is taken.
No you can not get a home equity line of credit but you can refinance and pay off the chapter 13 with the new mortgage.
Yes, but the Chapter 13 debt will have to be paid off as a condition of the loan.
Not without permission from the court.
You can file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 as a homeowner. If you are trying to save the home from foreclosure, then Chapter 13 would be the proper chapter.
Unless specifically stated in the chapter 13 agreement, you can rent your home.
The best time to purchase a new home after filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy depends on how long your bankruptcy will be. If you have your payments on a five year plan, then you may have to wait a little longer.
No. You can only convert the 13 to a 7.
If by "you" you mean the debtor who is in a Chapter 13, yes. If the car is subject to a purchase-money loan, it can get complicated, so you should talk to your bankruptcy lawyer.
It depends on how the home purchase will impact your creditors. If you you payment will be doing up, then you will have less money paid to your creditors under the Chapter 13 plan. On the other hand, you might get approval if the purchase won't lower the amount of money creditors would receive under the plan.
When participating in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, all major financial transactions must be approved by the bankruptcy trustee. One of the factors the trustee will take into consideration is if the transaction is necessary. For instance the purchase of a vehicle for transportation to a place of employment would probably be allowed. The purchasing of a home might not qualify as a neccessity unless it was an issue of health/safety.
Yes. A mortgage says that the loan is secured by the property. A "chapter 13" does not allow you to stop making payments on your mortgage.
