Will Filing A Bankruptcy Stop A Foreclosure?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy will stop a foreclosure, but only temporarily. Lenders can request “relief from stay” which if granted, allows them to continue with the foreclosure outside of bankruptcy. A Chapter 7 may buy just enough time to relocate, propose a short sale, or enter into a loan modification to resolve past due mortgage payments.
