Which Types of Bankruptcy Can Modify Your Loan?

The way a bankruptcy court will handle your loan depends largely on the type of bankruptcy you file. The following is a brief overview of your loan modification options within the most common types of bankruptcy.

  • Chapter 7. Chapter 7 bankruptcy generally does not offer loan modification options. The trustee liquidates your nonexempt assets to repay creditors, and any outstanding debt will most likely be discharged. Unless you can continue making payments, you may lose the property attached to the loan.
  • Chapter 13. Through Chapter 13, you may qualify for a lien stripping or cram down. Lien stripping can remove a second mortgage from your property if you owe more than the value of the property. A cram down is when the amount you owe is “crammed down” to the actual value of the property. You may also be able to negotiate a loan modification with your lender, so long as this modification is approved by the bankruptcy court.
  • Chapter 11. As with Chapter 13, you may be able to modify your loan through Chapter 11 bankruptcy. One recent development in Chapter 11 involves Subchapter V, which can allow small businesses to modify the mortgages of their principal residence. The mortgage must have been acquired in connection with the business, rather than simply to pay for the residence. This type of modification is not available in Chapter 7 or 13.
