The Court has adopted a Loan Modification Program developed by the Bankruptcy Law Section of the State Bar of Texas. The purpose of this program is to provide a uniform procedure to allow Chapter 13 Debtors, Lenders, and other parties to negotiate a potential modification of loans secured by real property in which a Debtor has an ownership interest. The goal of the program is to facilitate communication between the parties; provide for the confidential exchange of information and documents; and to encourage the parties to finalize a feasible, consensual, and beneficial loan modification.
The Loan Modification Program will become effective on October 1, 2018, and will apply to all active Chapter 13 cases. The Court has also developed Mandatory Forms (BTXN Forms 300 – 312) to use when filing Motions and Notices, as well as when submitting Orders required by the Loan Modification Program.
