In re Dasher (00-60397)

Movant sold a parcel of land to Debtors through an owner financing agreement which involved a final balloon payment at the end of the one year term. After the balloon payment became due but before payment was made, Debtors filed their Chapter 13 petition. Although Debtors proposed to pay Movant in full over the life of the plan, Movant objected to confirmation. Overruling Movant’s objection, the court held that § 1322(c)(2) allows for the payment of a prepetition matured balloon over the life of the plan.
