I filed for bankruptcy on 11/4/11. Foreclosure had already started on my home so it was included. My house went to the sheriff sale on 2/23/12. Michigan has a 6 month redemption period, which I am currently in and will end on 8/23/12. After the deed was transferred back to Chase, I found out that they are willing to sell the property for half of what they originally wanted. I found someone to purchase the property and rent it to me, but was told the property would be redeemed in my name, not deeded to the person providing the funds. My question is how long do I have to wait until an asset is in my name? The deed would be transferred to the new buyer as soon as possible. Is it 6 months from the time of filing for bankruptcy, the date of the hearing or when I received the discharge?
