At what point in the process will a bankruptcy show on your

At what point in the process will a bankruptcy show on your credit report? As soon as you file? After you are done in court and it's discharged? How long does it take to show up? I'm considering timing of when I do a BK if I decide to do one as it could influence potential landlords for my upcoming move.

I have a question about being a vendor (DJ) with a

Hi yes I have a question about being a vendor (DJ) with a restaurant that was closing down and is facing bankruptsyJA: What state are you in? And has anything been officially filed?Customer: CA No they are trying to settle with us to prevent bankruptsy they owe me 1800.00 and want to settle with about 500.00 saying they are dispersing the funds they have between the vendors. if they go into bankruptsy it is highly likely we will see nothingJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: as far as I know, they have not filed or reported anything. They just sent us letters to settle to prevent having to file.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: They made a mistake and the original document said 1200.00 they owed me and would pay me about 333. They are willing to pay me out of pocket the difference to get me the 500.00. Also - Just wanting to know if this is a good deal or not. I am super bummed to lose all that money. I would be willing to wait if there was any chance to get it if they did declare bankrupts... but it sounds like its not likely according to them. I just want to make sure that is an honest statement.

BANKRUPTCY: I have 2 questions 1. Debtor owes the Landlord

BANKRUPTCY: I have 2 questions1. Debtor owes the Landlord $4800 of back rent; and they are still occupying the residence. Landlord has not filed for eviction YET. Can the debtor include the $4800 of back rent in their Chapter 7 bankruptcy?2.Debtor is filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy and has 2 Title Loans on the same vehicle. Can they include the Title Loans in bankruptcy and retain the vehicle? 2003 Honda Odyssey is paid in full; but has 2 title loans against it.My thoughts to both questions is no; but I just want to ensure I understand correctly.

My tenant filed bankruptcy while facing eviction. 2 months

My tenant filed bankruptcy while facing eviction. 2 months rent was included in her filing. The court included those 2 months in her administrative fees. She has requested to pay the 2 months rent that were included in the administrative fees if I allow her to stay in the home she rents. Can I inform the court that she has made this payment. Is she allowed to do this?

I am a tenant in an large apartment complex for 8 years. I

Hello,I am a tenant in an large apartment complex for 8 years. I owe them about $900 in water bills. My original deposit was $950 8 years ago. My lease is over Novemeber 30th. I want to move as soon as possible, maybe even Octuber 30th.My lease contract says that for me to terminate the lease I need to give them 30 day notice and then I be responsible for two months lease (or in my case just till end of lease)I filed bankruptcy and the case was closed and bankruptcy (chapter 7) was finalized last week. I never mentioned to my lawyer or to the trustee that I want to move or terminate my lease. my question to you today is can I brake my lease now and not have to pay for next months rent? do I still neeed to give them 30 day notice or can I just tell them I be out in 20 days. I assume they for sure can keep my deposit .Rent is currently 1100, water is about an additional $70. When I originally moved in I was a student and I had a guarantor, but he never signed on renewal leases can they go after him or affect his credit, he was never asked to come back and sign anything since 2008. thanks

I am currently resident of Florida and reside in an apartment. Due to job loss several months ago I was late with my rent. I attempted many times to work arrangements out with my property management company however they have filed an eviction. I have recently found a new job and can afford the rent going forward. If I file Chapter 13 am I able to back the rental arrears in the payment plan? if so will that stop the eviction process?
