Can I file chapter 13 and include the house in the bankruptcy so I don’t lose my home? 4 Answers as of October 10, 2017

In the beginning of moving to the house, I was renting it for $550 a month. The landlords then approached me with an opportunity to purchase the home for $675 a month for 60 months. I have been paying on my home for over a year now.

I'm assuming that you have a written contract for with the owner and that you've checked whether the owner actually owns the property. As long as both of those are OK, yes Chapter 13 will let you keep the house and make the payments.
