There is much claims litigation in Chapter 13 cases because creditors with allowed claims get paid and the allowance of claims ultimately defines the extent of the debtor’s obligations under the plan. The materials in Part 6 cut across all other parts, and an effort is made here to tie up many loose ends, for example, with respect to the lien rights of secured claim holders, the rights of postpetition claim holders, dealings with the IRS in Chapter 13 cases and attorneys’ fees. The 1994 amendments clarified important questions about the disallowance of untimely filed claims. This Part 6 explores problems that have emerged with respect to unlisted creditors, as well as documentation of claims and issues that arise when claims are assigned. A separate section is devoted to litigation concerning mortgage claims.
