I recently filed an emergency chapter 7 bankruptcy to stop a lien sale on a storage unit. The sale was scheduled for 10/15/13 10:30 am. I filed the petition at 9:20 am on 10/15/13 and informed the storage complex that I was bring the petition to stop the sale. I arrived at 10:32 they told me that the sale started early and that my unit had been sold . I showed them the petition and asked them to void the sale, they refused.
I would like to know if they acted appropriately and what is my recourse if they did not.
