In a case as defined in Chapter 7, an individual debtor may “remove” material personal property, intended primarily for personal, family or private use, of a pledge that insures a derogatory consumer debt by paying the holder of the guarantee the full amount of the fair value of the property.
The removal of these consumables usually requires the filing of an application asking the Court to authorize the withdrawal of consumer goods by the secured creditor. Repayment almost always requires a lump sum payment to the secured creditor. Some lenders, based on the current value of the security, will lend to a debtor as a result of the petition, so that a debtor can exchange collateral (. B, for example, an automobile) under the pledge rights of a former lender. Or a debtor can get help from relatives or friends to get redemption. If the security is worth less than the debt, or if the interest rate on the existing debt is high, the repayment of collateral may be a more attractive option than asserting the debt (or, although any new credit used for repayment is a debt for which the debtor is personally responsible, it may be a better result than not confirming the debt but continuing to pay the existing debt).

Back to the text Early versions of the bankruptcy bill, both in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, all confirmation agreements would have been banned. The relevant provisions, which received bipartisan support, allayed concerns that “creditors have developed techniques to avoid the consequences of a debtor`s bankruptcy and that bankruptcies have suffered as a result. Bankruptcy often makes them little better than they were before. Unequal bargaining between debtors and creditors and the superior experience of creditors in bankruptcy continue to lead to frequent confirmations. (307) Although debtors have always been able to voluntarily honour their debts, the removal of enforceable assertions is a key factor in making insolvency relief an effective remedy. It ensures that a debtor does not come out of bankruptcy in the same situation as when he entered. (308) The main reason for not signing a confirmation agreement is that it will ensure that you will not be able to withdraw from the debt in the future.
