Q: Regarding selling my home
My question is the trustee did his final distribution report about a week & half ago and has abandoned all property in my ch.7 I can't get anyone to answer at the bankruptcy court to tell me if the decree has been issued And my attorney has stopped replying to emails!
My question is I should be ok now to close on the selling of my home in 3 weeks since I have it in writing that he has done his final distribution report and fully discharged everything and abandoned all property Correct? Thank you all for the advice have a great day & stay safe
A: You probably won't be able to close on the home sale until yoou get your Discharge and the case closes. The title attorney may not clear the sale until then. The Discharge generally comes about 70-75 days after your first scheduled Meeting of Creditors. The Trustee files the report of no assets pretty quickly after the Meeting of Creditors, so to avoid any potential issues with the closing of the sale, you should probably wait until you receive your Discharge.
