Q: Can trustee come after our home almost a year after the BK discharge? Is there no statute of limitation?
BK was discharged late 2017. We have a property in Mtn Home that the title company made a clerical error on recording the deed and so the trustee was going after that house before the BK discharge. We went to the trustee hearing and he mentioned nothing regarding the home we are living in. Almost a year later, now he is requesting the Realtor to look at our home. The market has improved and we have continued to pay on the home. The numbers today are not the same as a year ago. I feel like we are being double punished for something that the court already discharged.
A: You need to hire a competent bankruptcy attorney to defend this action. If there was no fraud on your part or on the petition, you can likely prevail.
