Foreclosure Sale Date

Only $300 Upfront Attorney Fees For A St Louis Chapter 13

When you fall behind on your house payments, the remedy for the mortgage company (or bank) is to foreclose upon the loan. In essence, it is the bank saying that you have breached your contract with them, and now they want to take back the collateral (i.e. the house). But in order for the bank to do so, it must follow certain procedural requirements.

Let Us Help You Keep Your Home Safe

After you have fallen into arrears on your home loan, the bank will most likely start the foreclosure process by hiring an outside law firm. The law firm will send you a series of letters, the last one of which will be an official notice of the foreclosure sale date. This letter is almost always sent by way of certified mail, which will require you to retrieve the parcel from the post office. The sale date is usually about 20 to 30 days from this official notice. In it you will find pertinent information as to your rights (including Rights of Redemption and bankruptcy). Once this date comes, the real estate will be sold ‘on the courthouse steps’ to the highest bidder.

Of course, if your goal is to keep the house, then you do have the option of filing a St. Louis Chapter 13 bankruptcy. So long as the case is filed before the foreclosure occurs, then theAutomatic Stay imposed by the bankruptcy court goes into effect. TheAutomatic Stay is the shroud of protection the court puts around you thatprevents creditors from taking any further action. Once the MissouriChapter 13 is filed, a repayment plan is created in which you pay back the mortgage arrearage over the course of threeto four years. Filing a St. Louis Chapter 7 bankruptcy will also stop a foreclosure from happening, but this type of bankruptcy doesnot include a repayment plan.

I've used this firm twice, both for speeding tickets. Both times it was zero hassle: just a matter of giving them the ticket. I've also recommended them to my friends, who have had the same experience. (My friends and I speed a lot.) Highly recommended. I'm sure I'll be back. David Rieken
