Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Real Estate litigation attorney here to assist you.
If the person is in a Chapter 13 case, it takes 3-5 years to complete the plan, so it should not be over.
Also, because a Chapter 13 is a repayment of all debts, you should not be in peril of losing your property.
I would recommend that you contact the debtor's attorney to discussing getting approval from the bankruptcy court to allow him to transfer the property to you once it is paid off and to make sure that the trustee is aware of your ownership of the property and that the money from your payments is actually being applied to his payment plans to the trustee.
I have contact info for his attorney, but how do I contact a trustee? All I have is a clerk name, and the creditor contacts were supposed to have been made at our local courthouse. Will I need to go there?
You can contact the court clerk's office and ask them to look up the case and give you the name of the trustee assigned to the case.
They will be able to give you the trustee's name and contact information.
