Buying or Selling Real Estate in Bankruptcy

access_time Posted on: July 17th, 2023

Much about bankruptcy law is counterintuitive and often misinterpreted. For example, the benefits of a bankruptcy filing, such as the improvement of credit scores, protection of assets, tax-free debt forgiveness, and the broad ability to qualify for Bankruptcy are often surprising to our clients. When a property is purchased through a Bankruptcy proceeding, it comes with a Federal Court Order declaring the property is free and clear of any liens, encumbrances, or other interests. It provides an added layer of title protection. The order ensures that no potential debts or interests existing before settlement could ever be enforced against the… read more »

Support for Small Distressed Businesses

access_time Posted on: December 14th, 2021

There is something new and exciting in the world of Bankruptcy which gives small businesses in financial distress a chance to reorganize and continue operating, rather than shutting the doors. In 2019, the Small Business Reorganization Act (SBRA) was passed and went into effect in early 2020, with impeccable timing – just prior to the pandemic. Under the SBRA, Congress created a more affordable, less burdensome option under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code for small businesses called the Subchapter V Bankruptcy. Under a Subchapter V Bankruptcy, the small business Debtor, after presenting financial documents to the Court, can pay… read more »

COVID-19 Update: The CARES Act and Bankruptcy

access_time Posted on: April 2nd, 2020

COVID-19 Update: The CARES Act and Bankruptcy Last month, March of 2020, The CARES Act was passed in light of the impacts of COVID-19. Specifically, there were changes affecting  Bankruptcies – both current and prospective cases. The CARES Act (the “Act”) excludes Coronavirus related payments from the definition of disposable income and the Bankruptcy Estate, i.e. the government stimulus check. Receiving the stimulus check within 6-months of filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy will therefore not disqualify a Debtor from filing a Bankruptcy under Chapter 7. While the Act does not explicitly state this applies to Chapter 13, most Trustees, even… read more »
