The Front Yard and Bankruptcy

Rate this item
(0 votes)

There are dozens of identifiable economic events that cause someone to file for the protection of a bankruptcy. Sometimes the cause is as simple as rainfall, or shall I say the lack of rainfall.

In April of 2015 the Governor of the State of California, Jerry Brown, signed an executive order imposing mandatory restrictions on water use. See full text of the order: What that entailed was a State wide reduction of water consumption by at least 25%. This was due to the lack of snow pack over the winter months, and therefore, the lack of melting snow pack for water.

Keeping the front yard green is not only a costly proposition, but also leads to up to 80% of household water consumption in the summer months. That is a lot of water. This has led to the conversion of the green grass front lawn to either fake yards, or drought tolerant yards. This is happening at a rapid pace and estimates are that over 3000 homeowners are making the switch, per week. AP:

Did I mention that lawn care, mowers, blowers, fertilizer, etc, is not good for the environment? Well, it is not. Think about the runoff and the emissions.

So what does all of this have to do with my office and the practice of bankruptcy? The trickledown effect of maintaining the grass, cutting the grass, irrigation upkeep, and over all landscaping is that the small and medium size companies will be losing their client base. The mom and pop crews that charge $40.00 once or twice a month to service single family residences will be losing those clients at a rapid pace. This loss of their income stream will cause them financial hardship. Many landscaping companies will be unable to address their household needs and will need some sort of debt resolution, debt management, and perhaps even bankruptcy.

Planning for this inevitable consequence is essential. Before anyone, who is faced with some sort of financial hardship, borrows against savings or starts liquidating assets, a consultation with an expert in the field of debt management and resolution is necessary.

Auto Loan Delinquency Rising

Late Car Payments?

The number of people 90 days late in car payments approaching peak levels since the subprime crisis of 2010.

If you’re late on your car payments, come in for a Chapter 13 consultation!

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or DebtDoc. I chose DebtDoc because of their numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. DebtDoc's attorneys personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of DebtDoc. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
DebtDoc's attorneys are extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted DebtDoc and found them to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. They were sure they could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months they successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend DebtDoc.
