Liens & Bankruptcy
Many people who file for bankruptcy are surprised to learn that even after their debt is discharged, the liens on their property have survived. Liens typically survive bankruptcy, as long as they are perfected (a notice of the lien has been properly recorded).
Before filing for bankruptcy, it is important to identify all liens you have on your property. In some cases, it is possible to negotiate with a lien holder prior to bankruptcy so that the lien can be removed. If a lien is not perfected, the loan may be considered unsecured and be dischargeable in bankruptcy.
When a lien survives bankruptcy, it is important to keep up to date on payments, or the property may still be seized.
To get a full understanding of how bankruptcy will affect liens on your property, it is important to consult with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer in Los Angeles.
