For DrakeLAW****, To recap - 1) I am 11 months into a

ForCustomer***Hi, Rich,To recap -1) I am 11 months into a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. My plan has been confirmed and an order on the Trustee's Motion to Allow Claims has been issued.2) My schedules include pre-petition debts owed to my condominium association. For a portion of the debt, the association obtained money judgments (one in 2013 and one in 2014). That portion totals approx. $19,500 and I scheduled it as secured debt. The remaining portion of the debt is approximately $10,500 and the association had neither obtained a money judgment nor recorded a memorandum of lien for the debt at the time I filed bankruptcy. Therefore, I scheduled it as 'unsecured' debt. The association has not submitted proofs of claim for the secured or unsecured debt.3) In our prior conversation on the subject, you raised concern as to whether the unsecured debt would somehow attach to the prior debt for which they obtained judgments. I am still unclear on this as I don't think we reached a conclusion. I will attach some documents that hopefully will help to reach a conclusion.4) I found language in the condo docs that indicates that a new purchaser of a unit is 'jointly and severally liable with the selling unit owner' for all unpaid assessments up to the time of sale. In the context of my bankruptcy, I wonder if this means that anyone who purchases my condo could still be pursued by the association for payment of the unsecured portion of the debt (even if it is discharged for me personally)? As for the legal technicalities for something like this - I believe it would be too late for the association to record a memorandum of lien for the debt (b/c Va code requires that such lien be filed within 90 days of the first assessment becoming overdue).....but could they still pursue a new owner for a money judgment? (This of course will affect the marketability of my unit you see!).

In a Title Report, the bankruptcy search notes a record was found a Chapter 7 bankruptcy that was filed 12/30/1999; Terminated 4/27/2000 and Discharged 4/21/2000. Given the bankruptcy statute of limitations pursuant to Chapter 7 bankruptcy, is it within the Mortgagor/Borrower's due process and civil rights to object that the Title Company does not comply with federal and/or state law, so that this information should be stricken/removed from the Title Report? (Please explain the legal basis and/or cite a relevant case.)

I'm am a licensed attorney seeking admission to the bar in a

I'm am a licensed attorney seeking admission to the bar in a different state that I plan to move to. The application to the bar includes a question: "have you ever defaulted on a student loan debt?" and if the answer is yes, the application requires a lot of information about said debt.I do have such a debt that I took out in 2005 and last made payment at some point in 2009. It does not appear on my credit report and has passed (or will pass very soon) the statute of limitations for collection. I know the debt was sold off years ago but I have no idea who owns it. I have also never been contacted by any collection agency or any other company regarding this debt since some time in 2009.I declared bankruptcy in 2009, but as far as I know this student loan debt was not discharged as part of that.How should I handle this situation? I don't know most of the information asked for by the bar application, and I don't want to resurrect this zombie debt tracking down the information.Please let me know if any additional information would be helpful in answering this.Thanks very much.
