Chicago IL – Bankruptcy is one of the scariest words a lender can hear. A bankruptcy filing can stall their ability to foreclose by 6 months, and sometimes as long as a year.
The lenders know that most bankruptcies will cause them to lose the ability to pursue you for any losses. This means they can’t go after you for any upside down debt.
The only thing a lender gets in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is any collateral they have on a loan. So they can foreclose on your house, but that is about the only thing they can do.
They can’t garnish your wages or bank accounts. So use the bankruptcy threat in your negotiations. Lenders know how much it will hurt their ability to collect from you.
The most effective technique that we have seen is to have all negotiations go thru a bankruptcy lawyer. The lawyer knows how to negotiate from a position of power.
The lawyer will also know full well exactly how bankruptcy will hurt the lender. Even if you have no intention of declaring bankruptcy the lender will get scared and cave in.
Then you can get the loan modification you deserve. Thinking about a short sale?

Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
