The 2nd Democrat of U.S. Senate has presented a law on January 6 in which the judges in bankruptcy would remove a couple of mortgage debts in the aim of stopping the ever-increasing number of foreclosures.

The said law was created by Senator Richard Durbin and would aid a lot of families prevent foreclosures by making their mortgage payments low.

Hopefully, they would also be within homeowners’ reach.

According to Senator Durbin, more than $1 trillion will be allotted to give resolution to the current financial problem. That is - a resolution to avoid foreclosures without having the homeowners spend more money.

A similar plan was made, but was not approved by the Senate since former President George Bush as well as some Republican legislators were opposed to it.

However, the supporters still hope that Senator Durbin plan will be made to happen as foreclosures are getting worse, and that newly-elected President Barack Obama is now ready for the position.

Some financial companies may be against the legislation, but many advocates for consumer-rights feel otherwise.

Who will not fully support the law? If approved, courts would erase some house loans as they would do for any types of debts.

As what twenty-one state lawyers have written, judges can modify debts for rest houses and farms owned by families, and that the same thing must also apply for residential homes.

The national home crisis went from bad to worse in just a span of 1 year. Foreclosures have never stopped increasing. Banks and lenders cautioned that any changes in bankruptcy legislation may interrupt credit.

Financial Services Roundtable President Steve Bartlett said that bills would make the price of home loans go up, and at the same time to resume home selling.

Senator Durbin’s plan to avoid foreclosures may have to wait for a couple of months before it gets approved by the Congress, unless the lawmakers will include it in their draft.
