Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.
If he lien was placed on the property while the automatic stay
was in place, then that is a violation of the bankruptcy code
. Not only can the lien be voided, but the HOA could face sanctions from the court. It is not uncommon in this situation for a creditor to actually pay a settlement to the debtor. You could also sue the creditor in the bankruptcy court
in an adversary proceeding.
So, the answer is yes ... you can sue, you can get the lien removed, and you could be awarded money.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, your positive feedback is much appreciated. Thank you for using our service!
