In the event of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, all your debts are usually destroyed once the case is closed. However, if you buy your home, you can keep it, which means you must formally agree to continue paying the mortgage. Otherwise, these debts will also be eliminated. Chapter 7 exempts the borrower from the debts he or she must pay, but does not eliminate the fact that the lender can claim assets that are pledged.

However, if the lender is unable to make the mortgage payments under the new conditions, the lender will take possession of its home and initiate foreclosure proceedings. In entering into a confirmation agreement, a borrower often retains the possession of an asset held as collateral such as a house or a car, provided that he can repay in full the debts he owes for that specified loan. You have the right to revoke (revoke) any confirmation at any time prior to receipt of your dismissal or within 60 days of filing the confirmation agreement with the court, depending on what happens later. To revoke a confirmation agreement, you must send the creditor a written notice that you are withdrawing your decision to confirm and revoke the agreement.
