Notice Of Sale


Information Regarding Notices of Sale

The Bankruptcy Court has provided information on all pending Notices of Intended Sale filed in bankruptcy cases in the District of Massachusetts. Under the Bankruptcy Code (Title 11, United States Code, §101 et seq.), and the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, all sales are noticed to the creditors in the case, all interested parties, and anyone who has filed a written request for all notices. The purpose of posting this information is to increase public awareness of bankruptcy sales and to generate increased sale participation.

The Notice of Sale filed in each case specifies the terms and conditions of the sale, the procedure you follow to participate, how to make a higher offer how to object to the sale, and most importantly, the time within which you must act. Please contact the person who filed the Notice of Intended Sale (noted as "the filer") for additional information and/or a copy of the Notice of Intended Sale. Also, you may request a copy through the mail by sending a $30.00 check plus $.50 per page copy charge payable to "Clerk, U.S. Bankruptcy Court" at the court office where the case is pending (Notices of Intended Sale are usually 2 pages in length). Note that with mailing time and search time, you may not receive a response for 1-2 weeks, which could impact your ability to act on the sale timely
