San Jose Second Mortgage Lien Stripping Lawyers

With the downturn in the housing market, many people have seen the value of their homes plummet. In many cases, people owe more on their first mortgage than the total value of their homes. Even more disconcerting is the fact that many people who are upside down on their mortgages have also incurred significant debt in the form of a second mortgage (second home loan or equity loan).

One little known fact about Chapter 13 bankruptcy is that it can provide relief from a second home mortgage. In certain circumstances, people may strip a second home mortgage with a Chapter 13 bankruptcy:

  • With a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may strip a second home mortgage lien if the value of your home is less than what you owe on your first mortgage.
  • You thus transform your second home mortgage debt from a secured debt to an unsecured debt. All or part of this debt can potentially be discharged in your Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
