I’m Thinking of Filing a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy to Strip Second Mortgages on Two Homes – Rey

“Dear Steve,

I own two properties one is a single family home which is our primary residence and the other is an income property. Both houses have a second loan. The second loan in the income property is for $175,000.00 founded through a private lender with a high interest rate. I owe about $65,000.00 on credit cards, personal line of credit, and attorney fees. I want to file chapter 13 to get rid of the credit debt and hopefully be able to eliminate the second on both houses.

The first loan of the primary residence is $331,800.00 and Zillow estimates $331,900.00

the first loan on the income property is $491,173.00 and Zillow estimates $590,00.00
