Does a bankruptcy case automatically remove liens-such as mortgages-against a debtor’s property?

Posted on April 21, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

No.  Liens can be placed on a debtor’s property in many different ways.  Some are by agreements, like mortgages and auto liens.  Others are by operation of law, like property tax liens on a debtor’s home.  And some liens are to enforce judgments that have been entered against the debtor.  Certain liens can never be removed in a bankruptcy case except by paying the underlying indebtedness, and others can only be removed if special action is taken in the bankruptcy case.  So, if a debtor has any question about liens on his or her property, these matters should be discussed with an attorney.
