Holding on to Your Property in California

At the Law Offices of James C. Shields, our foreclosure prevention attorneys help people get out of debt by seeking the protections of Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 will allow you to keep your home, your car and other valuable property as long as you can adhere to a monthly payment schedule and pay back your arrears. In the case of home foreclosure, it is important to act in a timely manner, as there are strict timelines in place. If you miss payments on your mortgage:

  • A creditor will file a motion for relief from the automatic stay on your mortgage foreclosure proceeding,
  • The creditor will then file a notice of default, giving you 90 days to cure the default.
  • If you do not cure the default within 90 days, the creditor will then file a notice of sale, giving you an additional 21 days to cure the default.
  • If you miss that deadline, your home may be sold on the 21st day.

Our South Bay bankruptcy attorneys will guide you through the bankruptcy process, keeping you up to date on all of the developments in your case, and making sure you take all the necessary steps to avoid these creditor actions.

What is Repossession?

In California, creditors can repossess your car if you are late on payment by a single day. They must, however, play by the rules and follow certain procedures. They are required by law to send you a post-repossession notice, which outlines how you can go about getting your property back. We will carefully review your case to help you get your property back and ensure that the creditors followed the law.
