Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi, I'd like to assist you with your bankruptcy questions this morning.
What do you mean when you say "the home has 600 feet not permitted?"
The adding to the home that used to be a walkway around the house and a patio to get the square footage. They did not pull a permit for this.
Sorry they added on
So to clarify, you had a large money judgment entered against you, you filed bankruptcy, and now the Trustee is selling your home to pay your creditors, is that correct?
yes the seller lied to me and on the stand as well to win the case.
Are you in a Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy?
If the seller (presumably the Trustee at this point) discloses all defects on the property, I believe it can be sold as-is...
he is not going to disclose anything
Let me double-check, as I do know offhand that California law requires more substantial disclosures than in other states.
Foreclosure sales and court-ordered transfers are actually EXEMPT from the disclosure requirements typically required under California Civil Code Section 1102.

great thank you. Brian.
