Even after filing bankruptcy, debtors need to pay special attention to financial issues that can survive the bankrutpcy discharge. The most common issue relates to surrendered real estate where the creditor does not move forward with the judicial sale removing the debtor's name from the deed. If the property remains in the debtor's name, state law obligations like real property taxes and local ordinances requiring the debtor to keep the home in good repair and free of debris continue.
