Many people worry that if they file for bankruptcy, they’ll lose their home. This is not often the case. Your home can indeed be protected by bankruptcy — even foreclosure proceedings must stop when you file. But once you’ve been able to keep your home through bankruptcy exemptions in your state, what then? What if you’ve never been a homeowner, but you’ve filed bankruptcy and now you want to buy a home a few years down the road once your credit has begun to recover? Can you even get a mortgage after bankruptcy? If you haven’t filed for bankruptcy yet, what are the exemptions and laws in your state that will allow you to keep your home? National Bankruptcy Forum answers these questions and more in our real estate and mortgage articles below.
