Don't hold me to this, but I don't think they can just take it back for being thirty days late. I think they would have to foreclose on your house first. Or get a judgment lien against your house first.

If you have authorized your bank to do so by arranging a scheduled payment, then the money will be drawn out and applied towards your mortgage payment. However, if you did not authorize a payment beforehand then a bank will not take money out for the payment.

There are two ways to stop foreclosure proceedings. Come to an agreement with the bank and make a substantial payment. For many this is not an option, so the only other resort is filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Yes you can. There is no legal base for a Bank to fire you for filing bankruptcy..... Filing bankruptcy is not a crime..... I even know people that got hired to work at the Bank after they had filed Chapter 13. I had to file chapter 13 after my divorce and got a raise couple months later at the bank. Not because I filed bankruptcy or because they would have felt sorry for me about getting divorce but because my job performance.

However, you are permitted to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy anytime after filing Chapter 7. Chapter 13 is a repayment of none, some or all of your debt over three to five years. Most or all of your creditors are lumped together into one large pool. Then, you make payments each month to the lawyer assigned to your case, called a liquidator. The liquidator distributes your payment to the creditors.There is some issue that you should know about while filing chapter 13 after chapter 7.1. If you file Chapter 13 within four years of filing Chapter 7, you cannot discharge your debts after you complete the three- to five-year Chapter 13 plan. You can still file the Chapter 13 to keep creditors from suing you, garnishing your paychecks or levying your bank account. This may require filing another Chapter 7 bankruptcy when you have passed the eight-year mark.2. If you file Chapter 13 four years after filing Chapter 7, you can have a very low monthly Chapter 13 payment plan and receive a full discharge of all remaining balances after you complete the three- to five-year plan. For example, you could pay as little as $100 a month for three years in a Chapter 13, paying very little to your creditors and yet still discharging the remaining balances owed.

Is there monies to help make house payment, I am unemployed and applying for disability cannot make house payment

And your revocable bank payment is a bank payment that cannot be rescinded. The advantage to the seller is once the payment is issued, it cannot be canceled.

You don't ever have to put a down payment down (unless your lender bank requires you to), however 20% of the value usually is the norm. We bought our house with NO down payment.

User Avatar

yes you can and most times it may be needed if you are filing a chapter 13 and you want the payments to be garnished directly from your account

User Avatar

Only if you use it for legitimate way to get to work if is strictly for fun the bank can and will repo it trust me I know from experience

User Avatar

The ONLY "bank" you can/should speak to is the one that has the mortgage (no one else would be interested or can do anything other than buy the house - and they probably have more than they want)...that is the one you pay (or aren't) to. They'll want to talk with you....tell them your probably filing BK and interested in doing a "friendly" foreclosure to do the right thing for everybody involved.

Payment by documents through your bank is how you have made your payment. The document could be your check.

Generally speaking, when Chapter 7 bankruptcy is declared, it means a person's debt exceeds their assets. If the amount of debt owed to a mortgage bank for a home, the bank has no interest in taking a home which will not cover the mortgage debt. All debts are wiped away.

Most people borrow money from a bank when they want to buy a house, but they usually do not borrow 100% of the cost of the house. They usually do have some money to apply toward the cost of the house, and that amount is called a down payment. So to buy a house costing $200,000 a person might make a down payment of $50,000 and then borrow the remaining $150,000.

ANSWER:The Bank will give you 90 days to make the next payment on the house. If you don't, The house will go into Foreclosure. And you'll be forced to leave. But, ya, the Bank will give you 90 Days.

The total payment wouldn't change. You might check with your bank however to see if there was insurance to pay off the house if he died though. Talk to your bank.

When you either voluntarily give up the house or you stop making payments (foreclosure).

User Avatar

No. A stop payment can be issued only before the check payment is made by the bank. If you try a stop payment after the bank has paid for the check, the bank wont accept it because the stop payment instruction is useless now and cannot be executed.

If you are filing Form 941 and including a payment, mail it to: Internal Revenue Service P.O. Box 105083 Atlanta, GA 30348-5083 If you are making an interim payment, make it at your bank or online at http://www.eftps.gov.

User Avatar

It Depends: Yes - If the check has just reached the bank and the banks is still processing the payment. If so, you can issue a stop payment and the bank will not pay for the check No - If the bank has already processed the check and released the payment to the payee customers bank account.

I infer from the wording of your question that you wish to borrow the money for the down payment on a house other than your primary residence. This is a big no-no. It doesn't matter what bank you go to. A down payment is supposed to be the loan-seeker's financial stake in a purchase. There are supposed to be no strings -- that is, liens -- attached to it.

If you have filed for bankruptcy as an individual, rather than as a couple, then you are only filing on your personal debts. Following this logic, only those funds that are yours (so your share of the bank account, if that is possible) will be "up for grabs." Your bankruptcy status should not have an effect on your partner.

The are several legal steps a bank must follow before your house can be sold, assuming you are actually the owner but the bank holds a mortgage on the house. 0. The bank must notify you that you have missed a payment 1. The bank must issue a demand for payment in writing to you. 2. The bank must deliver to you or have delivered to you by the sheriff a legal notice of intent to foreclose. The notice must be published. 3. The bank must go to court and get a court order to foreclose. 4. legal notice of actual foreclosure must be published. 5. House is sold at auction to the highest bidder. If you have any questions talk to the bank and/or consult a lawyer.

Yes. Most mortgage documents have a "balance due on transfer' clause as part of the boilerplate language. If you transfer ownership the bank can demand payment of the mortgage in full.

You can attempt to open a savings account. Whether or not the bank you apply to grants you the account depends on each institutions rules and policies.
