You need to consult your bankruptcy attorney for an answer to this. The answer would depend on where you are in the process of the bankruptcy; drawing up the papers, already filed, had a trustee assigned or already discharged.
A rule of thumb is to add ANY account or money owing to your bankruptcy request. The idea is that you want to show the trustee how overwhelming your debt is. Not everything listed is necessarily discharged, and it may be that your present rent will be excluded. Once again, you need to check with your attorney who should be familiar with the allowances and exclusions.
