Salem, OR asked in Bankruptcy, Foreclosure and Collections for Oregon

Q: Will filing bankruptcy take my 81 yr old grandma's house off the auction block for 6/20/19?

I just learned that my grandma's house is in foreclosure and scheduled for auction in about a week and a half on 6/20/19 due to an unpaid loan. If she were to file for bankruptcy, would it take the house off the auction block?
