While I do not live in the house that I own, my 54 yr. old son does. I informed my son of my desire to sell my property and that he should move. He then placed $950,000 worth of liens on my property in order to prevent me from selling it. The property is worth about $125,000. Prior to placing liens against my property, a few weeks before, he filed bankruptcy against creditors. I am not a creditor and I do not owe my son any money My question: Is it legal for my son to file bankruptcy (chapter 7) and then place liens on my property afterwards? (especially while involved in bankruptcy)
