Video: What can I do if my tenant filed bankruptcy?

If your tenant has filed bankruptcy and he or she is in default under the terms of the lease or the tenancy, it's imperative that you seek relief from the automatic bankruptcy stay before initiating or proceeding with any eviction action. The rights of the landlord and tenant vary, depending on the type of bankruptcy filed by the debtor. Accordingly, it is strongly suggested that you seek qualified bankruptcy counsel before proceeding.
