Best Answer

Assuming this is a straight bankruptcy, the mortgagee would lose the money that is owed to it on the mortgage loan. A bankrupt person or corporation loses all of his/her/ its assets to the Trustee in Bankruptcy so that the Trustee can liquidate those assets and distribute the net proceeds to the creditors. The mortgage loan is an asset which is then sold to the highest bidder along with the mortgage lien. The mortgage holder will now make the mortgage payments to whoever purchased the mortgage loan from the bankrupt estate. The mortgagee is left with nothing.

How is the tenant affected when a landlord files Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

It depends on the way the house is included in the bankruptcy. If the mortgage is up to date and the landlord is reaffirming the mortgage, there should be no effect. If the landlord is abandoning the property to the mortgagee, you will either get a notice to start paying rent to the mortgagee or a notice to quit or both. Talk to a bankruptcy lawyer right away, as there are some things you may be able to do to delay things or get help moving.
