The Party’s Over — or Is It? Secured Creditor Issues at the End of a Chapter 13 Case

The chapter 13 debtor’s plan is expiring, and the trustee issues a notice of final cure payment and completion of plan payments. Your client tells you it’s wrong and says there are uncured pre-petition and post-petition defaults, escrow shortages and unpaid attorney fees. What do you do? This session covers understanding Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 3002.1 and Local Bankruptcy Rule 2015-3 (E.D. Mich.); reviewing all notices of payment changes, fees and expenses; comparing records with the trustee and debtor, and obtaining discovery; the proper procedure to file and prosecute responses disagreeing with notice of final cure payment; case law regarding remedies under Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 3002.1(i) for failure to comply with the rule’s requirements; and implementing steps to comply with the discharge order.
