Hello. Thank you for contacting me. I am a consultant here and I am looking forward to assisting you with your question. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Please be patient as I will be typing my responses to you from scratch. Also, I can only answer/address the questions you ask specifically based on the information your provide. Please try to provide as much information as possible so I can best assist you.

If the court awarded specific performance, then the sale must go through according to the terms of the contract. The only way you will be able to avoid attorney's fees would be to file and go through with the bankruptcy assuming he does not file into the bankruptcy as a creditor.

The bankruptcy court will not undo what the state court ruled. That would only be done by appealing the state court's decision to the appellate court level.

I hope this helps. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Thank you.

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.
