Asking for a friend...she rented to an older couple who lost their home and filed for bankruptcy. They have adequate income to pay $800 a month rent and have been great tenants for about 8-9 months. They were upfront about their financial situation. They take great care of the house and yard.

Friend has her son getting her mail as she's not in the US, and he just got a letter from their bankruptcy attorney saying that the couple's filing bankruptcy was successful (or whatever you call it--they're now officially bankrupt) and she could no longer collect rent from them.

Does anyone know if that's true? My friend wasn't involved in the filing because they didn't have any back debt with her. Is there something that has to change if a paid-up tenant successfully files bankruptcy?
