Creditor Resources

A creditor in a bankruptcy case is a person or entity to whom the debtor owes money or who claims to be owed money by the debtor.

If you have received a notice from the court that lists you as a creditor in a particular bankruptcy case and the notice includes a proof of claim form, it means that the debtor has listed you in the debtor's bankruptcy case as someone who the debtor owes money.

  • My debts, including my first and second mortgages were discharged in Ch. 7 bankruptcy in 2011. After BK, I contacted my landlord (BBVA Compass), to see if they would agree I stay in my house in exchange for reduced payments. They said OK, but said they couldn't provide me with any receipt or written communication of any kind. However, they are considering the second mortgage in the total owed, despite that debts like these are considered UNSECURED. Should I accept this agreement where I won't have a paper trail to rely on in case of a dispute later? Thanks!

  • Concerning a Short Sale of Real Property; There are 3 liens. The 3rd lien is a voluntary one for the purchase of a home water purification system. In order to sell the property short, the Bank requires that the 3rd lien agree to be released. The lien holder is unreasonable. They ask for the original $4400 + Back Payments, Interest and Penalties which make the release amount about $10,000. Nothing less is acceptable. The Bank may allow 1 or 2 thousand dollars, no more. Can the 3rd lien be eliminated by an administrative action or through bankruptcy?
  • recently was given a Chapter 7 discharge, but Mortgage lender will not give me another loan modification because of income is not sufficient enough. I am behind in Mtg payments can I file a Chapter 13 to get caught up on delinquent mtg payments.
