On June 20th, the Ninth Circuit held that banks holding home mortgages can be required to complete certain administrative and reporting forms as part of being repaid by a Chapter 13 debtor. The banks objected to the bankruptcy court's inclusion in the Chapter 13 plans of repayment a local rule requirement that the banks comply with certain administrative and reporting obligations. The Ninth Circuit adopted the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel's opinion holding that the reporting obligations are not preempted by the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act and do not violate the Bankruptcy Code. In re: Arthur Daniel Monroy.
