I own a Timeshare in Cancun Mexico to which the loan has been

Resolved Question:

I own a Timeshare in Cancun Mexico to which the loan has been paid off. The property has a Unexpired Lease till 12/31/2046. I am in the process of filling out the Chapter 7 Individual Debtor's Statement of Intention on this property under Part B. I have been unable to find any examples to filling out part B. I have the Nolo How to File for chapter 7 bankrupcy book and have looked online.

My questions are:
Who is the Lessor? Is that me?
Under Describe Leased Property would I put down the name of the timeshare (ie. Raintree Vacation Club Cancun)?
The big question: Lease will be assumed pursuant to 11 U.S.C...... Yes or No?
I want to retain this lease and have placed it as Exempt under Schedule C Wildcard option.

I have included past due maintenance fees and special assessments under schedule F.

thank you for your time with this matter.

Hi JACustomer,
The Statement of Intention is not for real estate - it is for personal property only, such as a car that is leased.
The timeshare would go on Schedule G ("Executory Contracts and Unexpired Leases").

I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
Thank you!

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX has been placed under schedule g, but I have to state my intention with the lease inorder to not loose the timeshare interest do I not?

No - indicating your intention to continue to lease the property is not necessary to keep the timeshare.
