Second Mortgages Start Your Path to Financial Freedom

Second Mortgages

Discharge Your Second Mortgage Debt

Prior to the country's Great Recession and collapse of the American housing bubble, loans and mortgages were easily obtained and loosely underwritten. Although the negative effects these subprime loans had on creditors and lenders were soon made apparent during one of the harshest economic climates in U.S. history, millions of Americans were still left mired in underwater mortgages and overwhelmed by insurmountable debt. As a result, many who took out second mortgages on their homes, or home equity lines of credit, found themselves in incredibly difficult financial predicaments.

Having spent years guiding numerous individuals and families through the bankruptcy and foreclosure defense process, we have become intimately familiar with U.S. bankruptcy law. This has allowed us to identify a number of little-known provisions in the bankruptcy code that we use to assist eligible homeowners discharge a second mortgage. Contact us today to enlist our help!

How it Works

Homeowners who have a second mortgage on their home can file Chapter 13 bankruptcy as a way to restructure their debts into more manageable payment plans that last three or five years. At the end of the payment plan, bankruptcy courts may grant homeowners a discharge of the remaining debt on their second mortgage. This is done in much the same way that unsecured debts are discharged. When done successfully, this will mean that homeowners will only be required to pay original debt for pennies on the dollar.

In addition, once these cumbersome second mortgages have been eliminated, homeowners will have more financial flexibility. Lenders are also more willing to negotiate loan modifications once debts have been eliminated. With both of these benefits, homeowners can more effectively avoid the foreclosure of their home.
