They settled with PPR and are making monthly payments on the old mortgage - UGH
They wanted to keep their home
The Chapter 13 was dismissed and they were unable to strip the lien. PPR dragged their feet responding and the lawyer dragged his as well giving PPR more time than "allowed" based on the paperwork timelines.
I would have done it differently but this was their choice. PPR are scum sucking debt collectors. And anyone else who has to deal with them has quite a fight on their hands.
Sorry, I missed this. This is an ok outcome. They get to keep the home and should they decide to walk away at some later date they have no financial risk. Once they settled they no longer had a need for the Chapter 13 therefore the dismissal was very appropriate. This may not be the perfect outcome but it does work.
