Successful Lien Avoidance and Lien Stripping in Bankruptcy

OnDemand Webinar (96 minutes)

As a general rule, liens survive a bankruptcy discharge but often creditors' liens are at risk of avoidance or of being stripped. This OnDemand Webinar will examine the various means and methods used by debtors and trustees to strip or avoid creditors' liens on real and personal property during a debtor's bankruptcy. The program will address value issues and strategy associated with protecting against debtor's avoidance powers in Chapters 7 and 13 as well as the trustee's avoidance powers including use of the strong arm provision, preferential transfers, fraudulent transfers and state law lien avoidance.
