I currently have a renter that has filed bankruptcy as of October. I realize that a stay has been put in place but the renter was up to date on his rent payments. The bankruptcy was filed on October 10th. Now that Nov 1st has come and gone the renter technically owes this months rent. Should they still be making the rent payments and how do I go about notifyin the renter that rent is now due? Does all correspondence have to go through a lawyer which would darn near cost the amount that is due rent wise?I apologize about that Mr.Messutta. I did omit quite a bit of information. The tenant filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy on October 10th, 2010. Eviction wise, we were not thinking about evicting since that in itself can be a hassle and due to us living in a small town we did not want to create bad blood. The rent on the small building is 300.00 a month. The renter was currently up to date on all payments. I had heard that they may demand prior rents. My main question was would the renter be responsible for the rents due after the bankruptcy filing? I just wasn't sure which direction to look for who would be responsible to paying for the building since it is technically still in use and unrentable to future tenants while his property is still there. Once again, I apologize for not providing the needed information.
