Mischa Barton could lose house

Los Angeles: `O.C.` star Mischa Barton could lose her house after missing mortgage payments.

The actress` eight-bedroom Beverly Hills mansion worth over $8 million, has been placed in foreclosure after she failed to keep up with her mortgage repayments for the last five months, leaving her $100,000 in arrears, reportedly.

Barton might lose her lavish property unless she works out an agreement or brings her payments up to date soon.

The 28-year-old bought the property for $6.4 million, taking out a loan of $4.2 million, in 2005 and she has been trying to sell it since 2010.

The Spanish-style property was first put on the market for $8.695 million and then relisted after a brief break but after it failed to sell both times, she put it up for rent for $35,000 a month last year, though it is unclear whether she had any interest.

The mansion was then put back up for sale with the same price tag.
