Mortgage foreclosure defense in Pennsylvania can buy you time to bring your loan current, sell your home, or make other plans. In many cases, foreclosure defense can lead to a mortgage modification, settlement, or both. You can sometimes modify a mortgage while in bankruptcy.
A mortgage modification in Pennsylvania may involve a reduction to your interest rate, rolling any back payments into the loan principal (capitalization of the arrearage), or extending the term of your loan.
Deficiency judgments in Pennsylvania can follow a mortgage foreclosure, leaving the former homeowners on the hook for thousands of dollars. Bankruptcy can stop deficiency judgments and discharge debt.
