How Does Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Utah Work?
In Utah, Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to reorganize your debt and keep your home, car, and other valuable assets. It is designed for individuals with a regular income to catch up on their payments over a three to five year period. Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Utah is also typically suited for individuals who own a home and want to stay in their home.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lien Strip
A lien strip is possible in a chapter 13 bankruptcy when the fair market value of the property is less than the amount due on the senior lien. A second mortgage on a home is a common example of a junior lien that can be stripped if the value of the property is less than the amount due on the first mortgage. In this circumstance, the second mortgage can be stripped and the underlying note becomes unsecured and dischargeable. If the value of your home is worth less than you owe, you may be in a position to strip the junior liens and obtain a loan modification of the senior note.
