Hello and thank you for your question here on Just Answer.
Only the debt that was incurred PRIOR to the filing of the bankruptcy can be included in the bankruptcy. Therefore, any rent that became due after the bankruptcy was filed would not be included.
There should have been a place in the bankruptcy petition
that listed the unexpired lease with your company. Schedule G, contains the section regarding unexpired leases. If they indicated that they wanted to REJECT the lease then you cannot go after them for any unpaid rent that was incurred after the bankruptcy was filed.
If you want to evict them from your property, then you will need to file a motion for relief from stay. This will give you the courts permission to start the eviction process and kick them out of the leased space.
