Stop foreclosure in California

For most of us, homeownership is part of the American Dream, and we work hard and sacrifice much to achieve it. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, thousands of Los Angeles families are on the verge of losing their homes to foreclosure.

The Chapter 13 bankruptcy process allows you to stop foreclosure by reducing and restructuring your non-mortgage debts. Call or text DebtStoppers at 323-916-8660 to request a free debt relief evaluation with one of our qualified California lawyers. We’ll explain how the bankruptcy process can keep your family in your home. DebtStoppers has helped thousands of families, and we can help you too.

How the California Foreclosure Process Works

If you took out a mortgage to purchase your home, you most likely signed a deed of trust “securing” the loan with the property itself. This means that if you fall behind on your payments, your lender can retake ownership of the house using the foreclosure process.

California laws allow “non-judicial” foreclosure, allowing the lender to foreclose on your home without taking you to court. The non-judicial process lets the bank sell your house at auction through the “power of sale” provision in the deed of trust.

If the sale price doesn’t cover the outstanding balance, the lender can pursue a “deficiency judgment” against you to hold you responsible for the amount that’s left. While some state laws create a “redemption period” after the auction to allow you to buy back your home, California does not provide this option.

Stopping Foreclosure in California

DebtStoppers can help your family save your home using the Chapter 13 bankruptcy process. The moment your petition is filed, the court will issue an automatic stay that orders your creditors to stop any and all collection activities. Once the stay is in place, your lenders won’t be allowed to initiate new foreclosure proceedings against you. And, if they have already started the process, they cannot go any further.

In addition to the temporary protection offered by the automatic stay, Chapter 13 will reduce and reorganize your debts into a 3-to-5-year plan to reimburse about 10% of what you owe. Even though you still have to pay your mortgage, the total debt reduction you receive will make your loan payments affordable. That way, you won’t fall behind and risk foreclosure again.
