Writs – post bankruptcy

Seven years ago my husband underwent a closure of a business and then personal bankruptcy. The title of our land and our home is joint and I paid out all loans that were cosigned by me, thus was not part of the bankruptcy proceedings.
Now, with interest rates so low, we want to refinance our mortgage, but have discovered an old writ against our property due to his business that was prior to his bankruptcy.
Is this writ still valid, as I thought it should have been part of the bankruptcy proceeding and is there anyway to have is easily discharged?

If the debt was dealt with by the bankruptcy the writ will easily be removed. While the bankruptcy clears the debt behind the bankruptcy it doesn’t automatically remove the writ, a lawyer needs to do that. So you need to contact a lawyer and they will have it removed very easily.
