Due to the continued downturn in the real estate market, bankruptcy attorneys must stay abreast of continuing developments on the treatment of secured claims in bankruptcy proceedings.

Attend this program to learn how to better advise clients who are interested in obtaining a reverse mortgage and how to understand default servicing practices for mortgages in default.  This seminar will also give you the tools to understand valuation of residential properties for bankruptcy purposes, and to represent your client at a valuation hearing.  Finally, panelists will discuss whether maintaining a property is impractical or impossible and address the taxation pitfalls of short sales and the surrender of real estate.

Specific Topics:

I.  New developments in reverse mortgages and default servicing: A discussion with Salem Five’s Ed Barrett and Kim Downey

II.  Discussion of the Pros and Cons of short sales in the bankruptcy context.  Issues to consider pre and post filing.  What every practitioner should consider in this recession.
III.  Valuation of residential properties in the bankruptcy context and what you need to know about valuation hearings
