Yes, the house is included, as all assets and liabilities are listed in the petition. However, if you are current on the mortgage, the bankruptcy itself won't trigger any form or default. If you walk away from the house and it goes into foreclosure, you can discharge the deficiency balance in a bankruptcy. If you would like to discuss further, please email me at [email protected].
