Avoid Home Foreclosure by Eliminating/Stripping a Second Mortgage

Chapter 13 bankruptcy can be used to strip second mortgages, third mortgages, home equity lines of credit, and judicial liens/judgments. Your house must be underwater in order to be eligible for this. In other words, the value of your home must be less than what you owe on your mortgage. By stripping a second mortgage on your home, your mortgage now becomes unsecured debt. This is ideal because with Chapter 13 bankruptcy, unsecured debt at the end of the three-to- five-year repayment plan is dischargeable.

An important caveat to all of this is that a debtor must successfully complete the repayment plan. Otherwise the mortgage can become secured debt and once against be owed to the lender or creditor. Chapter 13 lien stripping can also work on second residences/rental properties by resetting the value of any mortgage (including first, second, and HELOC).
