Unreasonable fees for proof of claim. $4,000 fee for private mortgagee’s proof of claim and objection to proposed plan was unreasonable, and creditor was denied recovery of $7,500 attorney fee for responding to debtor’s objection to proof of claim. The Court considered Fannie Mae’s guidelines for maximum fees related to proof of claim in Chapter 13 ($650) and objections to a plan ($500). In re Bulger, 606 B.R. 526 (Bankr. W.D. N.Y. 2019).
