If you have recently gone through a bankruptcy proceeding, you may be wondering why you are no longer receiving monthly mortgage statements for real property. Unfortunately, a bank is not forced to send you monthly statements once you have discharged your debt for the mortgaged property. In fact, once a mortgage is in default even outside of bankruptcy, the lender does not need to send monthly statements.
