The note here is legitimate but they could file Chapter 7 and discharge the debt.Nothing in the note or the law prohibit them from filing Chapter 7.You would become a creditor under the bankruptcy here.It is unlikely you get paid pennies if anything if they file such a Chapter 7.If they don't file here you are able to sue in the event of default.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
