cure rights

cure rights

In bankruptcy, the right to fix a default so that a creditor cannot pursue its remedies. For example, a debtor may file for bankruptcy moments before foreclosure, stop the foreclosure, and then propose a plan to cure the default and past due sums. Usually the plan involves small monthly payments over the course of several years. Of course, it is not enough to cure the default, the debtor must also stay current on future obligations, but bankruptcy will sometimes allow for a renegotiation of those obligations.
