NOTICE TO THE BAR RE: TRANSFER OF CLAIM

A new procedural form 210, notice of transfer of claim other than for security, has been issued for use in the bankruptcy courts. A copy of the new form is attached. The form is designed to improve the claim transfer process for the courts and parties by providing a suggested procedure for compliance with federal rule of bankruptcy procedure 3001(e)(2). The form may be used when a creditor that has filed a proof of claim, sells or otherwise transfers its claim to another entity other than for security. Rule 3001(e)(2) requires the transferee to file evidence of the transfer and further requires the clerk to immediately notify the alleged transferor by mail of the filing of the evidence of transfer.

The new form, together with instructions for its use, is available at  www.uscourts.gov.
