While most people who declare bankruptcy in Nevada are able to keep their homes, the fear of foreclosure remains one of the biggest concerns we hear from clients we work with in Las Vegas and around the state.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Home foreclosures in Nevada declined in May by 57 percent compared to the previous May, but Las Vegas bankruptcy lawyer Matthew E. Aaron of Aaron & Paternoster understands many homeowners are still struggling.
In a June 9, 2014, article, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported the state remains third nationwide for home foreclosures.
“While most people who declare bankruptcy in Nevada are able to keep their homes, the fear of foreclosure remains one of the biggest concerns we hear from clients we work with in Las Vegas and around the state,” Aaron said. “And while we’re pleased to see that the number of home foreclosures continues to decline in Nevada, the risk of someone losing their home in Nevada due to foreclosure remains a very real and serious concern.”
The latest statistics nationwide about home foreclosures were compiled by RealtyTrac in its May 2014 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Nationwide, home foreclosures fell 26 percent in May 2014 compared to May 2013. Nevada’s home foreclosure fell by 57 percent during the same time period, the eighth straight month in a row for such declines in Nevada, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Nevada ranks third for home foreclosures nationwide, behind Florida in first place and Maryland in second, according to the latest May 2014 statistics published by the Review-Journal.
Bankruptcy filings in Nevada have also continued to decline this year, according to statistics compiled by the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Nevada. In March 2014, the most recent month available as of June 11, a total of 883 people or businesses filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy that month, 19 filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and 166 filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. All three figures are less than the figures for March 2013 and mark the fifth straight month in a row of declines compared to the same month the previous year, according to the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Nevada, statistics.
