But wait, there is even MORE! An article posted a foreclosure attorney's network USFN declares that Kansas Bankruptcy Courts will require the all bankruptcy confirmation orders include the following mandatory language:
"No real estate creditor shall ever assess, charge or collect, from either the debtor or the real estate collateral, any assessments, fees, costs, expenses or any other monetary amounts, exclusive of principal, interest, taxes and insurance, that arose from the date of the filing of the bankruptcy petition to the entry of the Order of Discharge except as may be allowed by court order or an allowed proof of claim."See: "KS: More Bankruptcy Court Mandates" (April 2008), by Chelsea Herring at http://www.usfn.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=USFN_E_Update&Template=/CM/HTMLDisplay.cfm&ContentID=8924&Section=Article_Library
What an insightful initiative! Perhaps other Bankruptcy Courts will take notice!
