For some of us, bankruptcy looks like the only option to get out of debt in anything resembling a reasonable length of time. This is never an easy decision to reach. Repairing credit ratings after bankruptcy is also not easy. However, even though it is difficult, it is not impossible. An equity home loan is a certain kind of credit that is available when going through a bankruptcy. But you need to have some information about bankruptcy equity home loans before you try to get one.
You can discharge your chapter- bankruptcy ahead of schedule by getting a bankruptcy equity home loan. You are given 3-5 years to discharge all debts filed under chapter-. On special occasions, the debtor's lawyer can submit a formal request to create an additional debt with the intention of eliminating the original debts more quickly and with a smaller amount of interest.
If this request is granted, the lawyer will then confer with financial institutions to locate a home equity loan that is agreeable to helping the debtor eliminate the debt in the time allowed, and can give a decent amount of cash to eliminate many of the original unsecured debts.
It is important to understand that if you already have an outstanding home equity loan at the time of bankruptcy, you are dealing with a secured form of credit. Essentially, secured debts can only be eliminated through any form of bankruptcy by turning over the debtor's house to the bank.
This is also the case for any home equity loans received when the debtor is undergoing bankruptcy. The only way to discharge this debt is to pay it back according to the terms agreed to when signing the loan papers or to surrender the property.
The above information can be a benefit to debtors who are in the midst of bankruptcy. A bank is much more willing to extend a line of credit to a person with enough security to cover what the loan will be for and also has a strong reason to want to pay it back according to the terms of the loan.
You can also begin to build you credit again once you have finished with your bankruptcy by using a bankruptcy equity home loan. If you are careful about always submitting your payment on time, the financial institution will pass that information along to credit reporting companies who will then use it to make your credit rating rise.
Even though obtaining credit while one is in bankruptcy is difficult at best, a bankruptcy equity home loan can be the step up that a person needs to get back on track and emerge from the bankruptcy in a better position than would have been thought possible. It is a way for a person to pay of creditors faster than could have otherwise been done. It can also help to make the payments easier to afford by giving one more time than the allowed three to five years to pay the loan off in full. Debtors need to keep in mind that no matter what, the bankruptcy equity home loan must be repaid as it is secured by a house that can be foreclosed upon if the the payments are not made.
