Foreclosure rates decline, bank repossession ones soar

A report published by the real estate data company ATTOM Data Solutions captures how foreclosure rates declined across the United States during November of this year. They decreased 13% from what they were in October. Those same statistics show that there were 11% fewer foreclosures this year than at the same time last year. The one index that hasn't experienced as much of a decline is the bank repossession rate. It's currently 22% higher than it was a year ago.

Those who live in the New Haven area already understand that Connecticut winters are relatively harsh, especially as the end of the season approaches. Winter technically begins on December 21, on the day of the winter solstice. Winter ends on the Spring Equinox, which in 2020 will be on March 19.

What's considered as exempt and nonexempt property?

Chapter 7 bankruptcy generally involves liquidation of a filer's assets. This leads many people to think that they're required to turn over all of their belongings to the court to be sold off to pay creditors. This isn't the case though. The U.S. Bankruptcy Court classifies the property as either exempt or nonexempt when deciding what can be kept or what must be sold.
