BLR 9007-2. Service of Other Notices.

(a) Unless the Bankruptcy Court orders otherwise, the party filing a pleading or other paper that requires notice is responsible for service of any notice required by the Bankruptcy Code or the Bankruptcy Rules, other than the notices specified in BLR 9007-1. Upon request of the Chapter 7 Trustee, the Bankruptcy Clerk will serve notices that a Chapter 7 Trustee is required to serve in a case in which no funds are available to pay the expense of such notice. The party responsible for such service must obtain the applicable information from the official record. The moving party is responsible for payment of any charges unless exempt pursuant to Judicial Conference Fee Policies.

(b) Certificate of Service. Within three days of service, the party serving notices must file a Certificate of Service with the Bankruptcy Clerk. The Certificate of Service must comply with BLR 9013-3(a) and all general orders on service.

(c) Expenses of Noticing. The estate of any debtor is authorized to pay the expenses incurred in connection with the giving of any required notice hereunder, without the necessity of an order of the Bankruptcy Court. Any such payment is subject to review by the Bankruptcy Court and must be disclosed in connection with any application for reimbursement of expenses.

(d) Notices to Creditors Added by Amendment. Whenever a debtor adds a creditor by amendment, the debtor must serve all creditors so added with all previously sent notices scheduling the meeting of creditors pursuant to § 341 of the Bankruptcy Code, and all notices and pleadings previously sent to all creditors whether such notices were served by the debtor, the Bankruptcy Clerk, or any other party in interest.
