CAN FILING AN INDIANA BANKRUPTCY STOP A SHERIFF SALE?

Many times we hear our clients ask, “Can filing an Indiana Bankruptcy stop a sheriff sale?”.  The answer is YES.  Filing an Indiana Bankruptcy will stop a sheriff sale.  Filing a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Indiana can stop a Sheriff Sale even after it has already been set.  By filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, it will postpone the Sheriff Sale.  There is not a mechanism for the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy to bring the home back up-to-date, so our clients usually try to work out a loan modification or agree to another solution with the mortgage company if they want to stay in the home.

On the other hand, filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Indiana could also be a very powerful tool to stop a Sheriff Sale and then help the homeowner come up-to-date on the mortgage.  Chapter 13 helps to establishes a new payment plan and has a way to pay back arrears during the life of the plan.  If you have a Sheriff Sale already set for your house, don’t think that all hope is lost.  Contact us and we can stop the Sheriff Sale.
