Customer Question

I filed pro se for bankruptcy, and reaffirmed a lease for my house. Now the management company seems to be watching for me to make a mistake and then threatening to evict and sue me. (two letters so far and the agent does not take my phone calls) Please let me knowThe bankruptcy has not been discharged but will be in a week. I know the court will not consider real estate leases. My question is whether I can rescind the reaffirmation by notifying the real estate management company in writing quickly.
Please let me know.
Thank you,
