Can you answer a condo bankruptcy question? I am on the board of directors. We have been to a sheriff's sale and obtained a lien foreclosure against past due HOA fees. However, other investors have jumped in with paying this lien?? How can they do that? Plus, this person, who is now deceased, so her estate, owes us almost 6 months of past due HOA fees. Her condo was paid off but this woman was receiving services from the county. The family is not redeeming so far, thinking whatever they would receive on sale of the condo at market rate, they would forfeit to the county. The 22,000+ was what the lien stated, but now, it has increased each month that this has been sitting. but I have other questions, too.

I am 35 years old and accumulated a bunch of debt for

I am 35 years old and accumulated a bunch of debt for various reasons and can't find a good answer to how to handle going forward. The bankruptcy attorneys I have talked to don't really tell me whether it's a good idea, they just want to charge me and file. A financial adviser is just there to manage wealth, debt settlers just want to consolidate your debt whether it's the best option or not and I am past credit counseling and consolidation at this point. Below are the points of my situation and questions.1. I am in the situation due to house issues, a salary decrease, and health issues so I do qualify for debt settlement. I don't want to do this because I could still get sued for the debt and I would like to just move forward with whatever the solution is.2. I would like to save for emergencies and retirement and can't do that now because I have so much debt and I would also like to buy another house at some point again in my lifetime.3. I make $110,000 a year in salary with about a $10,000 bonus.4. I own a house but can't sell it because I just purchased it in August and would have to bring thousands of dollars that I don't have to close. I can rent it but would still have to pay about $500 a month to make up for the gap between the rent and my mortgage. I do not want to keep it so could let it go in bankruptcy or do a deed in lieu of foreclosure. I don't think I can do a short sale as I don't think I can keep up with the payments as it can take a long time to sell and close.5. If I do bankruptcy, is using an attorney online sufficient or should I find another one local that can be a bit more hands on?6. I have a car that I owe about $25,000 on that I want to keep.7. What kind of financial information do I have to provide to prove I need to file bankruptcy?8. I have about $46,000 in student loans9. I have about $86,000 in personal loans10. I have about $21,000 in credit card debt.

Is she allowed to do this?

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 .
