Voiding Non Purchase Money Security Interests
Through no fault of your own, you have serious financial problems. Among your debts and finances are several loans where you may have given a ‘lien’ or ‘chattel mortgage’ on some personal list of property to secure the loan. If you pledged property you owned before the loan, it is considered ‘non purchase money’. Where you use the loan proceeds to acquire the property, your personal property item is subject to a ‘purchase money’ interest.
In some circumstances in a bankruptcy, it is possible to avoid a non purchase money security interest in bankruptcy, meaning the security interest is discharged.

What is the Lien?
Even though you owned an item, maybe a riding lawnmower or a list of specific, identifiable items in your home; the piano, the appliances or furniture. If you default on that loan, your credits can sue to recover their liened property.
What is the Difference?
In Bankruptcy your lawyer can, subject to the value of the items as well as your Exemptions, file a Motion with the Court to avoid the Non Purchase Money Security Interest without out having to repay the debt which the items secured.
Failure to Avoid
If you complete your Bankruptcy and you did not file a Motion To Avoid the lien, your personal property may be taken somewhere in the future, long after the conclusion of your Bankruptcy case.
