Since you filed in 2009, I assume your case is closed and the trustee has abandoned all assets. Which means you can probably keep any proceeds of a sale over the loan balance but to be sure have a bankruptcy lawyer take a look at your case.

Generally yes. But check with your lawyer as to other liens against the property. This is very important.

Pay an experienced lawyer for one or two hours of their time to review your file. Asking for this kind of legal advice is like calling a random doctor on the phone with you asking questions about an Xray and lab result the doctor has never seen, including your medical records.

    An attorney would need to review the bankruptcy file to be sure that the rental property is not part of your bankruptcy estate. Based on what you have disclosed, I am simply not able to say for sure.
