How Does Removing A Second Mortgage Help?

Second mortgage removal is one of the most effective approaches to debt relief in a Chapter 13 consumer bankruptcy filing. This is the practice of removing junior and second mortgages when all equity in a property is secured under a first mortgage.

If a second or third mortgage is unsecured by any equity, you may be allowed to reorganize the amount as an unsecured debt during Chapter 13 — typically the amounts owed on medical bills or credit cards. Under Chapter 13, the filer must agree to pay a set sum to the trustee on a monthly basis for a three- to five-year period, with the trustee disbursing a portion to unsecured creditors.

To qualify for the elimination of a second mortgage, you should obtain an objective valuation of your property from a real estate appraisal. Another option is to use the value listed on your property tax bills.
