This is the day every lender dreads – the day you receive notice that your borrower filed bankruptcy. Now what? For a lender, the consumer bankruptcy process is complicated, time-consuming, and expensive. Many lenders waste time and money handling bankruptcies because they don’t understand the available options. This webinar will explain the actions that must be taken to protect your financial institution’s interests, and the actions that are prohibited. It will focus on the basics, but will also address more advanced bankruptcy concepts such as fraudulent transfers, preference payments, cram-downs, and reaffirmation agreements.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
