Secured loans and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Loans that involve collateral, such as home mortgages and car loans, are called “secured debts.” Secured debts can be discharged in bankruptcy, but secured creditors can reclaim their property. If you stop paying these loans the collateral property will likely be foreclosed or repossessed. However, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy repayment plan can give you some time to catch up on payments.
