Calgary, Edmonton, Alberta bankruptcy Q&A forum



I am considering a consumer proposal. I have about 55k equity in my home, at the same bank as my biggest debt. Would the bank want part of this? Also I have 1 credit card with no balance on it. Can I keep it? Thank you!

Hi George, The Mortgage company will need to be notified as part of the consumer proposal process; however, the financing for your home should not be affected if your intention was to keep and maintain the property. All credit cards are surrendered at the time of filing a consumer proposal to prevent overspending during the consumer proposal process. Hope that answers your concerns.
