Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lien Removal Attorneys

Mortgages or liens placed on real estate are often subject to removal under the special provisions of Chapter 13.

Chapter 13 allows for the removal or “stripping” of liens through a court motion filed to prove that no equity exists to support the lien position. To the extent a lien or mortgage is uncovered by the true value of the property, it can be removed by a lawsuit prosecuted in your Chapter 13 proceeding. Stripped mortgages or liens are permanently unsecured under the Chapter 13 Plan which could include no payment on the removed lien.
