Rule 7001(2) complaint to determine validity of liens in United States Bankruptcy Court

A Rule 7001(2) complaint to determine validity of liens in United States Bankruptcy Court is the topic of this blog post. A complaint under Rule 7001(2) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure is considered an adversary complaint unless the proceeding is under Rule 4003(d).

This adversary complaint can be used to request the court to determine the validity, priority or extent of liens.  A request for a declaratory judgment pursuant to the provisions of Rule 57 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure may also be filed.

An adversary complaint under Rule 7001(2) can be extremely useful for a debtor, or another party such as another creditor who disputes the validity, priority or extent of any lien or other interest alleged by another party in the property of the debtor. This procedure can be used for any property of the debtor, whether the property is real or personal property.

For example, several years ago I prepared an adversary complaint under Rule 7001(2) in a case where the debtor disputed the liens alleged by various banks and financial institutions against his home. The adversary complaint also requested a declaratory judgment that none of the liens were valid as well.
