Every day, our firm is bombarded with questions arising over whether the lender has any recourse against the borrower if a foreclosure proceeding takes place. These questions often bring up tax issues, bankruptcy, and the 580b and 580d statutes of the California Code of Civil Procedure. Stay tuned, more on this blog to be published soon.

Bankruptcy reform to allow modificaion of mortgages is gaining momentum. Yesterday, legislation was approved 21-15 by a US House Panel. After stalling in Congress last year, the legislation has gained traction in recent weeks due to the shift in power in Washington and the growing perception that mortgage servicers have not done enough to help strapped borrowers. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, Calif.) said Thursday the measure was a “very high priority” that could move soon, possible as part of the economic stimulus legislation. More likely, it will be attached to other fast-moving legislation, such as a spending bill. To
It looks like the “Cram Down” Bankruptcy Reform will not be part of the economic stimulas package presently before Congress.

Ignoring a 1099 in such a situation will only trigger a tax liability! Instead, you simply need to fill out IRS form 982. Technically, sending a 1099 after discharge may also be unlawful and subject the creditor to damages. In the past, we have sued and recovered against creditors for this very conduct, so if you receive other correspondance (phone calls, bills, etc) in addition to
Probably because the creditor still wants their money! Unless that creditor did not get notice of bankruptcy, reporting a balance is a very power debt collection tool and a popular tool by the debt collection industry to collect debts previously discharged in bankruptcy. In prior articles, I had written how such acts will subject the creditor to liability. Recently, on January 12, 2009, the Ninth Circuit ruled in Gorman v. Wolpoff & Abramson, LLP, 2009 U.S. App. LEXIS 585 (9th Cir. Cal. Jan. 12, 2009), that California Civil Code 1785.25(a) may also now be used to sue creditors who continue to report
