Can an Owner Void an Association's Lien in Bankruptcy?

To answer that question, we first need to talk about the different types of bankruptcy that owners typically file: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13.

A Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a different process—this type of bankruptcy is often referred to as a "reorganization bankruptcy" and often takes about 3-5 years to complete. It may be easiest to think of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy as a 3-5 year payment plan bankruptcy. read more
