Occasionally a debtor in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Case seeks authorization to sell real estate.
IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT THE DEBTOR CONTACT HIS/HER ATTORNEY TO ASSIST IN SUBMITTING THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS TO THE TRUSTEE TO AVOID ANY UNNECESSARY DELAYS IN OBTAINING A RESPONSE. AS A GENERAL RULE, A RESPONSE WILL BE MAILED/FAXED WITHIN ONE WEEK OF RECEIPT OF THE REQUEST. MAKE SURE THAT YOU PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
In order to properly evaluate that request, the Office of the Chapter 13 Trustee needs the following information:
A written request for permission to enter into the agreements for the sale of real estate;
A copy of the accepted offer to purchase;
A copy of the Commitment for Title Insurance; and
A copy of the proposed Closing Statement;
A written statement from the debtor and/or debtors attorney indicating the portion of the net proceeds, if any, that will be committed to assist in funding the Chapter 13 Plan in the case.
