Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
Trustees do not abandon debts - they abandon property.
Are you asking about a property that the trustee abandoned?
i will give you what happened, i hired a contractor to restore my home after a fire. (the fire blew to my house)
Did the Bankruptcy trustee abandon the home?
anyways, i hired a inspector to inspect my house after the completion. ( I had 80K worth of damages and counting. Through the inspector report, I held back the last payment of 11.2K of an insurance check made out to the mortgage company, me and the contractor due to damages to my house. the contractor was suing me in jp court in DE. it was stayed due to be filing ch 7. (long story) In short, the construction contractor came to the 341 meeting to ask the trustee that once bankrupcty was discharged can contractor resume the lawsuit againt me;the bankrupcty trustee stated that since the check i am holding is in 3 parties name , mort co who signed, then me and the contractor who have not signed ( i refused to forward for signature) then the trustee will be taking the check out of bankruptcy. also, the bankruptcy trustee stated that the damages are limited to only the amount of the check.Though I am still in bankruptcy, the bankruptcy has not been discharged yet, i got served with a notice that I am being sued and the case has been resumed based on a letter of abandonment from the bankruptcy trustee. my bankruptcy atty says i have to get a civil attorney to help me resolve the matter. by the way by resuming the case, i am being sued for $14.8K not the $11.2k the amount of check. I thought no legal cases until after the bankruptcy was discharged/????? Hence my question to you.
