Legal Answers
26 Questions Answered
Q. Declaring chapter 7 before foreclosure
A: You need to consult with CT bankruptcy attorney who can help you prepare and file your petition and schedules. Since you are still in house your current mortgage payments can be included in your budget despite fact not being paid.
Q. A question about bankruptcy.
A: The bankruptcy discharges the personal obligation under the mortgage note, but not the mortgage security agreement.The validity of the mortgage appears not to have been challenged or recognized in the foreclosure action and the court entered the foreclosure judgment. If your friend's only concern is the potential personal liability for a deficiency judgment stemming from the foreclosure the bankrupty discharge protects her from this.
Q. Connecticut residential lease holdover- Do the terms of the expired lease carry over into a month-to-month tenancy?
A: A standard clause of most written leases provides that the terms of the written lease continue if the tenant holds over as a month to month lease. Check your lease to look for this clause.
