I live in NY and own a house and condo. I am planning on selling my house (primary residence) using a short sale and then moving into my condo. The condo was a rental for about a year and I have been trying to sell it for the past year. My question is once I sell my primary residence house and move into the condo how long would I have to wait to do a chapter 7 bankruptcy and now claim the condo as an exemption primary residence? Is there a certain amount of time that I will need to have lived in the condo to allow this exemption for chap 7 bankruptcy?
