Bankruptcy Appraisals


Bankruptcy is a legal procedure to assist debtors in obtaining relief from the debts they are unable to pay, while simultaneously assisting creditors obtain payment from a debtors’ remaining property or assets. The decision to file for bankruptcy is naturally difficult and can be overwhelming. The important thing to remember is that you are not alone. According to, there were over 1 million bankruptcy filings in 2013.

If you found this page because your attorney suggested that you have an appraisal done on your property, you have been given good advice. It is absolutely essential to have an accurate appraisal done, so that you can protect your home.

When filing bankruptcy, chapters 7 and 13 in particular, the credibility of the appraiser is essential. As the final arbiter, the judge and/or trustee will look carefully at both the appraisal and the appraiser. This individual will most likely want to see a full interior appraisal, completed by a state certified residential appraiser. He or she will also look at the credentials of the appraiser, and having an appraisal prepared by a designated appraiser will demonstrate your serious effort to get the most accurate appraisal possible.
