Tips to Catch Up on Your Mortgage Payments

How to Catch Up on Your Mortgage

There are many reasons why people fall behind on their mortgage payments. Whether its mounting medical bills, an unforeseen job layoff, or high credit card balances — life happens. Although being late on mortgage payments can put you at risk of foreclosure, all hope is not lost. Here are some ways you can catch up and save your home.

Talk to Your Mortgage Lender

Working out a payment plan with your mortgage lender may take some work and some time. If you aren’t too far behind your mortgage payments, they may be willing to accommodate your needs so you can bring your account up to date. If you are nearing foreclosure or are already in foreclosure, this may not be a feasible option. Read on to learn if Chapter 13 bankruptcy could be an option to save your home.

How Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Can Help

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, also known as reorganization bankruptcy, can be a viable option in catching up on your mortgage payments. Filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy petition puts into effect an “automatic stay.” An automatic stay prohibits lenders from taking action in starting foreclosure proceedings as well as collection activity. Once your bankruptcy is approved, your mortgage payments will then be structured into a 3 to 5-year payment plan that will help you catch up.
