Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you, please give me a moment to review and possibly research answers to your question.

1. Companies cannot file chapter 13. Only individuals with regular income can.

2. Yes, if you sold homes during bankruptcy, the equity would go to creditors. It seems to me you don't want to do that and should sell homes before filing BK.

3. Since companies can't filed ch 13, nothing will change regarding the cars.

Perhaps if you describe the problem to me a little more I can give you some more thoughts rather than just being stuck thinking about chapter 13.
