Property acquired after filing of a Chapter 13 petition
and before the case is closed becomes property of the bankruptcy estate. A debtor must update the Chapter 13 schedules to include the acquisition of any additional property, within 14 days of the date that the debtor becomes aware of the additional property acquisition. The bankruptcy trustee
can request that the court modify the bankruptcy plan to consider any additional property.
Failure to update your schedules could cause your bankruptcy to be dismissed. On the other hand, if you're not really sure that your name is XXXXX XXXXX deed (because, e.g., you have never actually inspected the deed and you weren't part of the actual purchase transaction), then your duty to update the schedules has not yet attached.
You may want to discuss this with a local bankruptcy attorney, before you make any decisions about what to do next.
