Bankruptcy Editorial – January 26, 2011
Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the chosen form for homeowners seeking to delay a foreclosure, as it grants them immediate protection from collection activity by creditors, and gives them time to assess whether they can afford to hold on to their home, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Under the three-to-five-year plan organized under a Chapter 13 filing, homeowners may get a second chance to make the necessary payments on their home.
The average homeowner in foreclosure was found to be 507 days behind on his mortgage payments.
