consent to judgement after bankruptcy

by lorato

I recently filed bankruptcy on my home and the debt was discharged. Now the finance company who bought my home loan from the initial bank is wanting me to sign a consent to judgement. They say they need me to sign the consent to judgement so that they can take back the property in their name and sell it. Does this sound legit? Why do I have to sign a consent to judgement on property that has been discharged through bankruptcy?

Please consult your bankruptcy attorney. There may be a legitimate reason for them to request this. The debt may be discharged but they may not have the means to sell the property without this documentation. However, this is a question for your attorney.
