Hi and thank you for your question. In the future, you can request me to answer any further questions.
If the value of the property is less than the allowable exemption for the homestead, then it will be protected from liquidation in a chapter 7.
31-1 - Real property or manufactured home of unlimited value, but cannot exceed 160 acres if not in a city or town, or 1 acre in a city or town. You may rent the homestead as long as you do not acquire another. May be limited to $5,000 if more than 25% of area of improvements is used for business purposes.
That is the OK bankruptcy exemption for homestead, which, is very generous.
Thanks for your question, good luck.
you did not answer my question. I asked if all of the value of the homestead is safe from bancruptcy and you answered "if the value of the property is less than the allowable exemption. What is the allowable exemption? That is my question.
that is the exemption
it says Unlimited, based on the size
so unlimited means it won't be liquidated
