Though your bankruptcy was discharged, the lender still holds the lien on the property. I guess you filed for Chapter 7 and did not reaffirm your loan. In that case, the lender has the rights to foreclose the property and recover his dues. However, after the sale of the property, the lender will not be able to come after you for the deficient amount. Moreover, it is your first lender whose dues will be satisfied first.
