Taking a look at Chapter 13 bankruptcy

The United States Courts provides excellent information regarding Chapter 13 bankruptcy on their website, such as the perks that come with filing Chapter 13 and an overview of the process. For some people in Tampa and throughout Florida, Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the best way to reduce debt and finally find a fresh financial start. However, it is very important for anyone who is thinking about filing for Chapter 13 or moving forward with any other debt relief strategy to closely analyze their situation and identify the proper course of action before getting started.

More foreclosures in Florida than any other state

For some homeowners, the threat of foreclosure keeps them up at night and causes considerable anxiety. In Tampa, Florida, people who are dealing with this firsthand should try to explore every available option and address the situation correctly. After all, losing a home to foreclosure can lead to a plethora of problems that affect the entire family and it is imperative for every homeowner who is facing these financial challenges to take action as soon as possible.

Settlement checks for foreclosure fraud sent to wrong addresses

We’ve previously discussed the issue of foreclosure abuse that was so widespread a few years ago. After millions of homes were fraudulently repossessed, several major banks settled with homeowners to compensate them for losses. Many foreclosure practices were also changed to allow homeowners in Florida a fair chance to stop foreclosure.

Many Tampa homes still abandoned while prices increase

Housing prices are quickly increasing in Florida. Especially in Tampa, investors, developers, and homeowners are picking up homes almost as soon as they arrive on the market, even with rapidly rising prices that some even say are rising too quickly. This is positive news for our state’s economy and housing health. However, there are still many homes going through foreclosure that are just sitting empty and dragging down neighborhood values.

Will everything be okay after facing foreclosure?

Financial challenges are still a stressful and sad part of life that many Floridians are experiencing. As a normal and common part of these challenges, foreclosure still looms over the heads of millions of Florida homeowners. It can be an uncertain, scary, and highly stressful time for families. If you’ve received a court letter advising you that your home is about to be repossessed, you may not know where to turn or what to do.
