To most people, bankruptcy is perceived as the end of the line. The dream of riches and opportunity are over and it’s all about cleaning up the mess.  However, Bankruptcy Armageddon can be avoided and many investors and property owners and lenders, in the know, take advantage of the opportunities that arise in bankruptcy, particularly those involving distressed real property.

Our show features two distinguished bankruptcy attorneys, Sara Chenetz and Richard Golubow.  Sara and Richard have fought the wars, representing landlords, tenants, investors, lenders and the various groups of creditors looking to protect their real property assets and turn the lemons into lemonade.

Listen as we discuss:

  • The various strategies employed by property owners before, during and after they file bankruptcy.
  • What happens to partners and how do they protect their interests?
  • How about lenders who have a secured interest in the property…how do they protect their investments?
  • Can you loan money to a property owner just prior to the bankruptcy filing and are there any advantages?
  • How does bankruptcy affect the note that you hold on the property?
  • Can you buy real property or a note that secures real property in the bankruptcy and if so, what is the process and how do you protect yourself?
  • How does bankruptcy of the property owner affect the tenant and how can the tenant both protect themselves in bankruptcy or take advantage of their position as a tenant?
