I filed Chapter 7 and received my discharge papers already. However, I own a timeshare in Colorado that I owed for two years of maintenance fees. That was included in the bankruptcy. I also decided to surrender the timeshare since I have had difficulty selling it in the past. I figured that surrendering it would be the best option to get out from under it. But, I still have the deed to the property. I called my attorney and asked him if in fact it was surrendered and what I should do with hte deed. He said He would have to get back with me and let me know. Has anyone come across a situation like this? Did I actually surrender the timeshare? Or was the back maintenance fees the only thing discharged?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
