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 had funds garnished from my bank account by the attorney of a creditor. I completed a writ of exemption and the other attorney appealed it and now we have a court date. Do I have a chance of getting that money back? What information do I need to take with me to court?

I received bankruptcy notices regarding a company that

I received bankruptcy notices regarding a company that offered me shares for some land my family owned. The bankruptcy is a chapter 11 filing. I assume that I get these notices because I am a debtor, but I don't know what I am supposed to do with this info? Am I supposed to respond? The last thing I received was an approval of debtor's statement. If I am getting nothing because the company filed bankruptcy then what do I do with these letters?

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've asked before, 3credit cards were opened up

I've asked before, 3credit cards were opened up fraudulently. 1creditor won't speak with me the other 2 want their money. All 3 know these were opened fraudulently. Transunion sent me a letter to fill out and send back. 2 cards show they have gone to collections ... what does this mean to me. I own 2 homes. One is paid for I live in that home. The other is rented out.. can they attach my paycheck or my home. Not sure what my next step is. My son says these are his accounts but no creditor will attach it to him since they have my ss. Chapter 7 sounds extreme. My son is out of work because of an injury. He paid on these accountants until he was hurt and couldn't work. This is how I found out that these accounts were opened. I have 1 credit card with 8500. 1 mortgage and a second on it. I don't have the money to pay the other creditors .

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?

My home was discharged in my chapter 7 back in May of 2013.

My home was discharged in my chapter 7 back in May of 2013. I did not reaffirm the loan. I sense then have remained current on mortgage payments and remain in the home. I would like to buy a new house and was wondering if it would be possible to sell my current home without any issues because it was discharged? Or would i have to contact the mortgage company? I have quite a bit of equity and worry that the lender might stop accepting my payments and foreclose on the property to sell for a profit. Thanks in advance.

Here is the timeline of events: 1) April 15, 2016 - Filed

Here is the timeline of events:1) April 15, 2016 - Filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in the District of Alaska2) May 30, 2016 (with 60 days of filing) I filed Official Form 427 expressing that my residential lease would not be assumed (we decided to reject the lease and seek more affordable housing).June 11, 2016 - Notified Landlord that we have completely moved out (Please note that rent was paid in full up to July 1, 2016) so we thought we were doing the right thing by leaving early once we knew we would no longer be able to afford the apartment.We are 100% sure that the landlord received our notification.The landlord just sent me a collection notice and notice of a pending late fee if I do not pay July-September rent. He also included the following statement "Bankruptcy will not protect you from your early termination of our Rental Agreement nor for any damages to the property (there were none). Once damages have been assessed, they will be forwarded to you for immediate payment. Until then, rent is due per our agreement and both rent and late fees will keep accruing through the end of September when your lease ends. If you decide not to pay and not to abide by or agreement, you will also be responsible for any attorney and collection fees. Choose wisely."
