Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I encourage you to ask me for clarification, if you are not clear with my Answer.
Could you clarify?
When you said that you cancelled the action, are you no longer in bankruptcy?
Thank you for the clarification and the additional information.
Regardless of your bankruptcy, the foreclosing lender must still inform you of the date of the sale at least 20 days before the sale. See California Civil Code Section 2924c:
If the lender did not inform you and the property has been sold, you can get a consumer lawyer to file action in the Superior Court to undo the sale. You can find local attorneys here:
No, I do not take offense for the informal moniker. And for an "amateur law student" you did well by stopping the first sale using an RO.
Anyway and unfortunately, my answer would not be the same in light of the additional information. Since you already had a sale date before you filed the bankruptcy petition and the automatic stay was lifted, the lender was free to proceed with the scheduled sale date without giving you yet another notice of the sale. For all things concerning foreclosure notices see California Civil Code Sections 2924c, 2924f, and 2924g. I am sorry that the news is not good.
I am tired and ready to sign off.
So, I will opt out and give another Expert the opportunity to further assist you.
