An attorney at the firm of Busby & Associates can assist residents of Wharton County, Texas, who have been served a 20 day notice of foreclosure via first class or certified mail. By law, finance companies must provide this notice before they can sell the home at auction which is held in Texas the 1st Tuesday of every month. Your lawyer may recommend that you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy so that you can save your property and the opportunity to have 5 years to pay the back payments owed. For those who have a 2nd mortgage with no property equity from the 1st loan there is the ability to pay a reduced amount (pennies on the dollar) during the discharge of this 2nd loan. Home association fees and property taxes are also eligible to be included under the bankruptcy process.
Repossession of a Vehicle
Wharton County residents that are behind on their auto payments to any of the dealerships listed below should seek the help from an attorney at Busby & Associates. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy has options for vehicle owners to pay a lower interest rate (around 5%) or the current market value instead of the owed amount. If the vehicle has already been repossessed then an ’emergency’ Chapter 13 will need to be filed within 10 days of the event per Texas state law if you want to keep your vehicle. Under this provision the owner can keep the vehicle but assumes responsibility for making up the back payments.
Car dealerships in Wharton County, Texas: Don Davis Motor, Don Elliott Autoworld, Don Elliott Ford, Riceland Chevrolet, Richmond Road Auto Sales.
