Mortgage Workouts in Luzerne County

Luzerne 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 Luzerne County mortgage workout attorney who knows the procedures of the Luzerne County courts. You may need the Luzerne County mortgage foreclosure diversion program or a Luzerne County mortgage conciliation conference.

Mortgage Modifications in Luzerne County

There are many ways you can modify a mortgage in Luzerne 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 Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas or even the Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

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

Foreclosure Defense in Luzerne County

Sometimes, when other options won’t work, you need a Luzerne County foreclosure defense attorney. We know how to navigate the foreclosure process in the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas. When dealing with foreclosure defense it’s important to have someone who deals with this court all the time. We do.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Luzerne 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 Luzerne County. As a result, a Luzerne 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 Middle District of Pennsylvania Bankruptcy Court. You need a Luzerne County Chapter 13 lawyer who knows these procedures.

The other great part about Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Luzerne County is that the Middle District of Pennsylvania has a mortgage modification mediation program. This program allows us to have the bankruptcy court supervise the mortgage modification process to make sure the lender plays by the rules. This can be a big help to you if you’re trying to save your house.
