Modification or conversion will not stop the sale if you don't make the payments.

Yes, you can do that if the lender agrees. The HAMP program is over.

Unless the mortgage company obtained a lift of stay from the chapter 7 bankruptcy, they cannot proceed to foreclose. If they did, converting to chapter 13 may not stop the foreclosure. You would have to look at the order lifting stay. Converting to chapter 13 would require monthly payments to the trustee to catch up the arrears.

    If you don't have an attorney now, you should get one, because you are now facing more complex questions which are impossible to advise on an online forum like this.

    Converting your bankruptcy to Chapter 7 will not further delay a sale date authorized due to the lifting of the automatic stay in the Chapter 13 case. While you are welcome to contact the mortgage company or their representative to try and work things out, your options in bankruptcy appear to have ended.
