Give me a break! I would need to have more information to answer a question like this. When was the property sold? Last week, last month, last year, or not sold at this time? Who was it sold to? Like a friend, relative, or business associate of one of the owners? Was it sold for fair market value or virtually given away? The devil is always in the details...so you need to be discussing this with an attorney who is representing you.

    Your equity in the property (non-homestead) is determined at the date of filing of the bankruptcy.? The sale of the property should not have an effect on the bankruptcy itself.? If you had equity that could not be exempted it would have an effect as to the trustee obtaining monies from the proceeds of the sale.

    When you own property with 2 others, that's called tenants in common and each own 1/3rd of the property. If your name isn't on the mortgage, then your 1/3rd is free and clear. The only problem would be if you failed to disclose your ownership of this property on your bankruptcy schedules or you valued the property at significantly less than the actual selling price. In either of these cases, you need to amend your schedules to show the property.

    If you are presently in a bankruptcy case, hopefully you listed your interest in the property on Schedule A and possibly claimed as exempt on Schedule C. You must also obtain the Bankruptcy Court and Trustee's approval of the sale before it can be completed.

    As long as you are paying the mortgage timely it should not have a bearing. If you are in a 13, you should be timely on your proposed plan payments.

    The income from the property will need to be turned over to the trustee to be applied to the debts. If this is a chapter 13, you will need to see if it is still advantageous to be in the bankruptcy.

    It's an asset that should have been listed in your schedules. A sale of your interest without the bankruptcy court's approval or ch. 7 trustee abandonment is a no no.
