If she filed a Bankruptcy that would not extinguish any security interest that the lender had in the mobile home. So if she bought the mobile home with a loan, then the original lender would have the first lien on the mobile home itself and your bank would have a second lien. You indicate that her case was dismissed rather than discharged. This is an important difference. If the case was dismissed without a discharge being granted then she would still owe the original amount of the purchase loan regardless of what the property is worth. If it was discharged, then she would not be liable for the amount of the loan except to the extent of the value of the mobile home.
