Despite some of the reports on the Internet that foreclosures in the Fort Worth area are declining, the rates are still considerably higher than they were last year. There can be many reasons why there is a lull in foreclosures. It could mean that the mortgage companies are overwhelmed with paperwork and are forced to sit on homes that are in pending foreclosures. This of course does not mean that they will not foreclose, but rather that they will eventually get around to it.
If you are facing foreclosure and cannot negotiate a reasonable repayment plan with your mortgage lender, it may be wise to consider filing for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. When you file for bankruptcy, you will stop the sale of your home and have the opportunity to repay the arrears. Additionally, you may even be able to exclude a second mortgage that in turn can save you thousands in mortgage payments.
If you are in danger of losing your home, filing for bankruptcy can be a very powerful solution for many homeowners as it can give you the time and resources to renegotiate your mortgage with your lender while saving your home.
