CAN I KEEP MY CAR OR HOUSE IF I FILE BANKRUPTCY

Can I keep my car or house are questions that potential bankruptcy clients frequently ask me. The answer to this question varies depending on the status of the payments on the car or house, the amount of equity in the car or house, and the individual clients desire to keep or surrender these things.


The simple answer is that a car or house can be kept by the Debtor in a bankruptcy if he or she is current on the payments on these things. If the Debtor has past due payments for their car or house and desires to keep their car and/or house the Debtor must file a chapter 13 bankruptcy to reorganize. The Debtor will have to pay the arrearage for their car or house through chapter 13 plan payments if their intent is to keep their car or house.


The amount of equity and how the car or house is titled effects what assets are exempt in bankruptcy. The chapter of bankruptcy (7 or 13) a debtor files depends on whether the equity in the car or the house is exempted. In Maryland, Debtors can exempt $11,000 of personal property and have a homestead exemption of $23,675 for their residence. Special exemptions apply for a house if it is titled tenants by the entirety.
