Tulsa Oklahoma Foreclosure Attorneys

Out Tulsa Foreclosure Attorneys can help you get a fresh start. When you file a chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can keep your home as long as youTulsa Foreclosure Attorneys are current on your mortgage payment. People who lose their home during a chapter 7 are usually underwater and seek to have the mortgage debt discharged. Our Tulsa foreclosure attorneys help you navigate the process. Perhaps even helping you save your home.

Upon filing chapter 7  an automatic stay is enacted. This is done to prevent any of your creditors from continuing collection activity. Further, this includes any mortgage arrears you may owe. A chapter 7 bankruptcy will delay the foreclosure process, but only for a short period of time. During this time, a mortgage lender can file a motion with the bankruptcy court requesting for the automatic stay to be lifted. If this is successful the foreclosure can continue.

Note, the foreclosure process is separate from the bankruptcy process. As mentioned above, you may be able to save your home from being sold when you file a chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, this does not protect you from the foreclosure process which occurs outside the bankruptcy court. Chapter 7 bankruptcy will not save your home from the foreclosure process. It will though provide you with more time to pay any mortgage arrears owed.

Tulsa Foreclosure Attorneys and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:

Unlike a chapter 7 bankruptcy, filing a chapter 13 bankruptcy may help you save your home. If you are current on your mortgage payment, you can keep your home. If you are behind on your mortgage payment  you may be able to keep it. To keep it you have to repay the past due payments. This is done in the Chapter 13 payment plan. The plan will allow you to pay on your mortgage arrears over a designated period of time (this usually last 3-5 years). You must however continue to make timely mortgage payments from the date your chapter 13 petition is filed.

Foreclosure Types in Oklahoma:

In Oklahoma, there are two types of foreclosures a lender may implement: 1) Non-judicial Foreclosure or, 2) A Judicial Foreclosure.  Most lenders commonly use Non-judicial foreclosures.

The judicial foreclosure process involves filing a lawsuit to obtain a court order to initiate the foreclosure process. It is used when there is no power of sale clause present in the mortgage or deed of trust.

A non-judicial foreclosure can occur if there is a power-of-sale clause in the deed of trust that secures the mortgage loan by giving the trustee the authority to sell the home to pay off the loan balance at the request of the lender if the borrower defaults (fails to make payments).
