Are you Facing a Judicial Foreclosure or a Non Judicial Foreclosure?

key differences between judicial and non-judicial foreclosures.

Very simply put A non-judicial foreclosure does not involve a judge or the court system. the responsibility to make sure all the rules, regulations and laws are followed goes to the Public Trustee. In Colorado the Public Trustee is given the job by the governor of the state.  quite often this person is an experienced lawyer, 

A Judicial foreclosure occurs when the lender has to take the borrower to court in order to get the money back.   this day involves a judge and normally this is a long process. if you are facing a foreclosure in Indianapolis, Indiana The bank will have to use a judicial process to foreclose on you.

Non-judicial foreclosures (remember that’s when the courts are not involved) in  cities like Denver Colorado typically take around four months, from the time you receive the first notice from the bank until they sell your house.   However, you must be very careful as it can happen a lot more quickly. In fact in Georgia, A foreclosure can be completed in as little as 37 days. 

judicial proceedings can be Wrapped up in three and a half months but can easily take longer than a year.  On average it takes about 150 days to foreclose on a property in Indianapolis Indiana.

Should I choose Bankruptcy? 

 like any choice you’re about as pros and cons to choosing this path Sisley, we must remind you that we are not lawyers and we are not offering legal advice what were you trying to do is put together information that hopefully is useful to someone who is in financial distress

Bankruptcy is a legal process that happens when a person does not have enough money to pay all the debts when talking about a foreclosure it means there is not enough money to pay the monthly amount.  there are many different types of bankruptcy. Commonly people that are facing the possibility of losing their house because of a full closure are advised to use, what is cold, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. 

Losing your house to the bank can be one of the scariest sings a homeowner May face. adding the term bankruptcy doesn’t make it any easier often people who have debt Beyond then means seek to file bankruptcy Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is designed as a pass to keep your property for the long-term by way of restructuring your debt.  another way to put it is you may be allowed to negotiate a long-term payment plan to catch up on all your late payments and fees with the bank. it must be remembered that well paying for Goldie added Bank charges the homeowner is still responsible for making monthly payments to the mortgage,  Insurance Company and for maintaining the house.

 so it’s important to understand the bankruptcy is anything but a quick fix –  in fact, it’s a very serious process full of complicated legal jargon and requirements.  you must also make all eligibility standards. as previously mentioned there is a continued commitment to paying off old late fees lawyer fees and ongoing mortgage costs because of the bankruptcy.   we will now run through some of the ways bankruptcy may keep you in your home and a few of the reasons you may not want to put you see yourself through this process. 

 most often chapter 13 is a wise choice for people who have a lot of debt but still have a steady income.  Chapter 13 will allow a person to propose a repayment plan typically 3 to 5 years depending on the income.  it’s the person in financial trouble who follows the plan exactly and meets all conditions they may end up keeping the house.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy in effect pushes the pause button on the foreclosure process via the “automatic stay” rule.   This can create a little breathing room. When the person has a steady income this pause may allow them to catch up with the payments

It is important to understand that the foreclosure doesn’t stop completely during bankruptcy proceedings.  you also must remember new mortgage payments during the chapter 13 mess to be made otherwise the bank can I ask for the foreclosure process to move forward. 

one of the ways to fix a bankruptcy is that a negatively impacts your credit score typically it will stay on your credit report for 7 years and is considered very negative. in the future  lenders will consider this seriously when deciding if you are allowed a new loan credit card oh good interest rates. 

 as stated earlier in the sky making a choice between selling your house and filing for bankruptcy is a very difficult one and in a humble opinion selling your house saving some of that hard-earned equity and moving forward without a bankruptcy on your credit score is the best option.
