We signed up for a timeshare in Las Vegas last winter and they went brankrupt before we could use it. We got a notice of filing official transcrip and of deadlines related to restriction and redaction. I am now sure what we should do to get our money back.

Good Afternoon,

 

Thank you for choosing JustAnswer

 

You have not stated a question that I can answer. But if the attorney you called does not return your telephone calls and you want to find another lawyer a bit more sympathetic to your concerns, I am giving you the Nevada State Bar Association website in case you want to use their Lawyer Referral Servie:

I'm sorry the lawyer wasn't representing me it was the lawyer that is handling the companies bankruptcy case that wouldn't call me back. What I need to know is what is a request for redaction and should I do it? How do I get my money back from this timeshare that went bankrupt?
Expert:  ANDREA replied 7 years ago.

A redaction in the legal sense is to edit or modify a writing in preparation for publication. In the context of Bankruptcy, a transcript of the proceedings is prepared and it becomes a matter of public record. If someone is seeking repayment or payment from the Bankrupt estate, they have to file a claim and they become one of the creditors.

 

During the course of a creditor filing a claim, certaininformation is given - name, address, telephone number and other personal information; if you have given any personal information in connection with your creditor status and because of your request for a refund of the money you paid for the timeshare and you want that personal information to be deleted from what will become a matter of public record, you must file a Request for Redaction.

 

I am listing below the website which has the specific form a creditor would use in a Bankruptcy filed in Nevada , in the event you gave personal information when filing your claim with the Trustee in Bankruptcy.

As to receiving a refund, only the Trustee in Bankruptcy would be able to tell you that or if there are enough assets to divide up among the creditors, of which you are one, as you know.

So is there anything I can do to request our money back or certain forms I should submit to try and get our money back?
Expert:  ANDREA replied 7 years ago.

You must find out who the Trustee in Bankruptcy is; you can do that by calling the Bankruptcy Court and if you don't have the case number, they're pretty good about looking it up by the debtor's name. Then submit a claim to the Trustee in Bankruptcy by stating the amount owed to you and very briefly describe the date, nature of debt and how it arose.

 

The Trustee will fill you in on whether there is enough money to go around. As I said previously, the Trustee in Bankruptcy has all the necessary information.

 

Good Luck!

Is there a certain form I fill out for the claim or would they provide me that info?
Expert:  ANDREA replied 7 years ago.

The Bankruptcy Court can provide you with the forms and as I told you in my previous answer, the Court Clerks are very good about giving you this inoformation as well as the name of the Trustee in Bankruptcy assigned to the debtor.

 

Also, in a previous answer I gave you the Nevada Bankruptcy Court's form for Request For Redaction.
