A secured claim filed after the bar date in a chapter 13 case was disallowed as late, even though the claim had been provided for in the confirmed plan. You can download a copy of the court’s order from a link in this post.
If the debtor filed a petition between Dec. 1 and Dec. 10, 2017, then as of the date of this post, the creditors’ bar date has passed. Creditors, if you didn’t file a proof of claim in those cases, it’s too late. Debtors attorneys, do you know when you may file claims on behalf of creditors? Read on.
This post includes a little bit of information on several topics:
– last week’s increase in the prime rate of interest;
– bar dates in cases that convert to chapter 13;
– estimating trustee’s fees in the plan;
– problems with 522(f) lien avoidance calculations in the plan.
Effective with cases filed on or after December 1, 2017, creditors will have only 70 days from the petition date within which to file proofs of claims (not 90 days from the 341 date). In addition, the bar date will apply to secured creditors as well as unsecured creditors. Read on for more information.
