Bankruptcy

Introduction

LoanPro has some native functionality to help you track bankruptcies on a loan. This is designed to help you track bankruptcies from the time you are first notified until they are dismissed or discharged.

Tracking a Bankruptcy

To track a bankruptcy, navigate to Servicing > Bankruptcy inside a loan. To add new bankruptcy information, click 'Add New'.

On this page, as shown above, you can alter bankruptcy information for the loan. Here are descriptions of each option:

  • Status - This can be either Active or Inactive. LoanPro will let you track an unlimited number of bankruptcies, so you can keep information about both inactive and active bankruptcies.
  • Who's Filing - This is a drop-down that will show both borrower and co-borrower. Either can declare bankruptcy, but the consequences to the loan may be different depending on who declares.
  • Filing Date - This is the date when bankruptcy was filed.
  • Objection Deadline Date - This is the deadline for you to object to the bankruptcy. An objection is an official filing that must be done through the court listed on the bankruptcy.
  • Bankruptcy Chapter - This is the bankruptcy chapter. The options include:
    • Chapter 7 (Individual Liquidation)
    • Chapter 9 (Municipalities Reorganization)
    • Chapter 11 (Business Reorganization)
    • Chapter 13 (Individual Reorganization)
    • Chapter 128 (Wisconsin)
  • Bankruptcy Petition Status - This is a drop-down that will let you track the bankruptcy through the different stages. The options include:
    • Discharged - There is no longer an obligation to pay a qualifying debt, or the bankruptcy plan has been fulfilled.
    • Dismissed - The bankruptcy was dismissed by the court and is no longer in force.
    • Petition Filed - The bankruptcy petition has been filed. This is usually the starting point for a bankruptcy.
    • Plan Confirmed - Bankruptcy repayment plan has been confirmed by the court and is valid and in force.
    • Reaffirmed - Secured debt will be paid according to the original agreement. The borrower will remain in possession of the collateral.
  • Case Number - The case number for the bankruptcy that is assigned by the court.
  • Petition Type - Petitions can be filed either by an individual (Single) or by an individual and spouse (Joint).
  • Bankruptcy Process Status - This is the status of the bankruptcy. The options are:
    • Claim Filed - A claim has been filed for the bankruptcy, but has not yet undergone the legal process to make it valid.
    • Discharged - The obligation to pay a qualifying debt is discharged, or the bankruptcy payment plan has been completed.
    • Dismissed - The bankruptcy was dismissed by the court (most often because the claimant failed to fulfill the terms of the payment plan).
    • Notice Received - Official notice of the filing of a bankruptcy claim has been received by you, the lender.
  • Objection Status - This is the status of any objection filed to the bankruptcy. The options are:
    • Objections to Claim Filed - These are objections to the original bankruptcy filing.
    • Objections to Discharge - These are objections to the discharge of a debt.
    • Objections to Discharge of Debt - These are similar to objections to discharge
    • Not Available - This status can be used if you don't know the status of the bankruptcy.
  • Automatic Stay Status - This is the status of the automatic stay of repossession that is imposed when bankruptcy is filed.
  • Proof of Claim Filed Status - This field helps you track whether you have proof that a claim has been filed, or that proof is still pending. Proof must be provided for official notification of bankruptcy to be considered received.
  • Liened Property Status - This is the status of property that may be included in a bankruptcy, which has liens against it.
  • Bankruptcy Notice Received Date - This is the date on which notice of bankruptcy was received.
  • Proof of Claim Deadline Date - This is the deadline by which you must file proof of your claim of the borrower's debt.
  • Proof of Claim Filed Date - This is the date on which proof of your claim of the borrower's debt was filed with the court.
