Supreme Court Announcement:
June 1, 2015 – The US Supreme Court today ruled that junior lienholders cannot have their lien stripped if the value of the real estate is less than the value of the senior lien.
Listen in as Michelle discusses the new Supreme Court announcement.
Here are the questions covered on today’s training:
Question #1) When do I need to retain an attorney? What can I do myself?
Question #2) Can I call the bankruptcy trustee for information about a case?
Question #3) What do I need to do if the Debtor listed my predecessor in the case and not me/my entity which is the current note holder?
Question #4) What is the significance of not filing a Proof of Claim?
Question #5) What do I need to do if a homeowner files a Motion to Value or Avoid my lien? Do I have to obtain an appraisal or will a BPO/Zillow work?
Question #6) Why would a homeowner file Chapter 7 if they want to keep the home and are delinquent on the 2nd?
Question #7) Do I need to attend the 341(a) Meeting of Creditors?
Question #8) Why won’t the homeowner’s attorney call me back? What can I do if I want to present a workout to the homeowner?
Question #9) How can I analyze a Chapter 13 case once it’s filed to determine how I will be treated?
Question #10) Can I just wait out a Chapter 7 since it’s a short case, or would I file a motion? What are the Pro’s and Con’s?
Question #11) Is there anything I can do if my lien has been avoided and I missed the hearing / deadline for filing an opposition?
Question #12) How can I be notified of the documents filed in a case?
Follow-up question to #12, “How do I know there is a bankruptcy in the first place?”
Other items covered:
– What is a “Cramdown”?
– Owner occupied versus non-owner occupied
– Question: “If you’re stripped can you still pursue the debt?”
– Personal liability: Michelle discusses when the borrower is personally liable.
– Michelle stated, “If your lien is stripped you are then considered unsecured debt, you’ll now be paid based on how the bankruptcy structures the payments for unsecured debt.”
– Question: “Regarding Ch 13, if the property gains value during the 5 year period can a reappraisal be done to help the lender?”
