The Impact of Bankruptcy on Your Real Property

Do you own real property other than your home? In most bankruptcy filings, at least a portion of your home will be covered by the homestead exemption so that you can remain living there, as long as other certain other conditions are met. However, if you own investment property in addition to your home, you may lose some of the rights to maintain your real property. In Florida bankruptcy proceedings, a few rules apply. This includes single asset real estate. Depending on how much you owe and what chapter of bankruptcy you file for, creditors may be able to take action against your property.

However, there are options as to how your property is handled. These include:

  • Loss Mitigation
  • Mortgage Modification Mediation
  • Short sales
  • Cash for Keys
