Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.
What does FLS stand for?
Hello Chris I recall mentioning property to the bankruptcy lawyer and it was believed he put that in with the credit cards. Apparently he didn't. What can I do
Are you asking about the Bankruptcy you filed in 1999?
yes I am
What type of property was involved, and what was the value of the property in 1999?
it was just under an acre and the property was 30,000.
Did the Bankruptcy court find out that the property was not listed on your Bankruptcy papers?
and was purchased by a second party in cash
It was never brought up
If you want to add the property to your Bankruptcy papers, you have to open your Bankruptcy case, and then file a Amended Schedule to include the property.
and what would this kind of thing cost me?
and this would get these people off my back?
You will also have to surrender the property or its value ($30,000) to the Bankruptcy court.
I understand that
The housing development in PA
What is the PA housing development doing to you?
Or what do they want you to do?
They have contacted a collection agency to try and collect unpaid assessments which were impossible to make after jobs were lost due to the economy
At this point, it might be easier for you to just file another Bankruptcy. Especially since the Bankruptcy court might no longer have the records for your 1999 Bankruptcy.
they want the 20,028.00 in unpaid assessments
do I stand a chance of coming out of this
You should be able to include those fees if you file a Bankruptcy now, as long as the fees are more than one year old.
Thank you. Are we finishes now?
Or you can wait until the fees are at least one year old before filing.
all right then.
Thank you for your expertise
You're welcome again!
And please have a pleasant evening!
