A NYC real estate attorney who loves what he does. Listening to this podcast does not create an attorney-client relationship. I know, I know, but we have to say it. We really hope you enjoy.
Getting around the Means Test in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in NYC
The Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Means Test is one of the most misunderstood tests around. There are a variety of different ways to qualify, even if your income is too "high." One of the ways that you can still get rid of your debts and still file, even if you have high income, is if 51% of your debt is non-consumer, or business debt.
I explain here in a general way.
Remember, none of this should be considered legal advice and no attorney/client relationship has been created!
Questions at the Meeting of the Creditors
I've compiled some of the most common questions that Trustees will ask debtors in a section 341 meeting (also known as the "Meeting of the Creditors")
Please understand that this is simply a sample of the potential questions and it does not constitute legal advice in any way!

2. Understanding timelines
3. Understanding contingencies
4. How to potentially save your down payment
Let me know your thoughts.

"Yo, you got a permit for that?"
This week we're talking about permits. Specifically
1. What in the world are they for?
2. When do you need them?
3. Who gets them?
4. What happens if you don't get them?
5. Why am I so pumped about them?
It's a huge topic that's often underdiscussed in real estate circles, so I hope this podcast gives you some better idea about the process and steps you can take to ensure you're covered. Shoutout to Mike Daddio, a client, friend, and licensed contractor, who was so kind to give me some of his time to discuss some pitfalls.
Also, and I have to say it, none of this is legal advice and none of this creates an attorney-client relationship. I know, I know.
"Whats Tax Got To Do, Got to Do with It..."
