Foreclosure and Bankruptcy

See All Topics
Please find attached a template letter that you can use to request information from your mortgage servicer for information regarding escrow accounts if your mortgage loan is currently in forebearance. 
As with most legal questions, the answer is fact specific. The instant a bankruptcy case is filed, your creditors are prohibited by law from contacting you, attempting to collect a debt and yes, they are also prohibited from foreclosing on your home. Even if your home is scheduled to be sold at foreclosure tomorrow and you file bankruptcy today, an injunction called the automatic stay will temporarily sheild you from creditors, forcing your lender to immediately cease and desist with foreclosing.
