Mortgage Workouts in Lehigh County

Lehigh County has a number of options for mortgage workouts. A mortgage workout is a general term that many people use to describe any number of solutions that can be used to save your home. A mortgage workout can include forbearance, repayment, mortgage modification, or even bankruptcy. What we do depends on whether or not you want to save your home. Some people want to keep their house. Others don’t.

Sometimes, when you are trying to save your home, we have to look at a number of different options. We may start by requesting a forbearance then pivot to repayment. If that’s not feasible, we may look to at mortgage modification. On the other hand, if your main concern is the debt and not with keeping your house, we can look at other options such as a short sale, deed in lieu of foreclosure, or Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Regardless of your approach, you need a Lehigh County mortgage workout attorney who knows the procedures of the Lehigh County courts. You may need the Lehigh County mortgage foreclosure diversion program or a Lehigh County mortgage conciliation conference.

Mortgage Modifications in Lehigh County

There are many ways you can modify a mortgage in Lehigh County. Many lenders have a process that allows us to work with them directly. If we’d rather use a court-supervised program, we can also use the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas or even the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

No matter the method we use to request a mortgage modification, you need a Lehigh County mortgage modification attorney who knows the procedures of the Lehigh County courts.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Lehigh County

By working with your creditors to create a payment plan you can actually afford, Chapter 13 bankruptcy will allow you to retain your most important assets, including your home. At the end of your three- to five-year payment plan, your remaining debt will be discharged. There is only one Chapter 13 trustee in Lehigh County. As a result, a Lehigh County Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorney sees the same trustee over and over. We know his procedures inside and out as well as the procedures of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Court. You need a Lehigh County Chapter 13 lawyer who knows these procedures.
