DOES  BANKRUPTCY PROTECT A RENTER FROM EVICTION PROCEEDINGS?

If a debtor has been making rent payments on time, there is usually no reason that a landlord needs to know about a bankruptcy filing. If the debtor is not current on rent payments, a landlord can begin eviction proceedings, whether or not the debtor has filed for bankruptcy. While the automatic stay of bankruptcy can stall eviction proceedings, the stay is not permanent. A landlord can ask a court to "lift" the automatic stay. Courts usually grant these requests, which means that eviction proceedings resume.
