You also need to submit a subject access request to the original creditor to see if there are unfair charges on the account. These may well take the balance below £750 which would mean bankruptcy is not an option for them. It's also worth asking for a copy of the CCA within your SAR. It costs £10 - see the templates section for the letter.

Hi angiek

 

This is serious and I think the solicitor is wrong. A good solicitor should be able to help but they tell you to go away because they want paying - and you can't if you are bankrupt.

 

You need to fight this all the way. The chances are that AG can't prove the debt, or that they own it or that they served the bankruptcy papers properly. This bankruptcy order can be rescinded but it will take some work. If you don't the trustee in bankruptcy will sell your assets (and that possibly includes your share of your house to pay ALL your debts and the costs of the bankruptcy - and they can be another 30 -35% on top of all your debts.

 

Don't bother with advice suggesting sending a SAR under the Data Protection Act or even writing to Arrow for a copy of the credit agreement. It is far to late for that now. You may need them later but you will have to sort out the bankruptcy first. Have you been to see the Official Receiver yet or filed in a questionaire?


Arrow Global/MBNA - Discontinued and paid costs

HFO/Morgan Stanley (Barclays) - Discontinued and paid costs

HSBC - Discontinued and paid costs

Nationwide - Ran for cover of stay pending OFT case 3 yrs ago

RBS/Mint - Nothing for 4 yrs after S78 request

Also, tell your husband he must stop offering payments to Global - or to any other of your creditors. These debts are now included in your bankruptcy and must now be dealt with by the Official Receiver.

 

In any case, if there are funds available [big if], then the OR must pay out creditors pro rata. Your husband paying off one of your creditors separately will probably complicate matters enormously in that one creditor is being paid off preferentially at the expense of the others. In this respect at least Global is acting correctly.

 

Do you have assets of any sort? Shared house maybe?

If you have no assets then Global will have made you bankrupt to no purpose. It will have cost them a lot of money to petition for your bankruptcy and they will want that paid, and this is on top of any existing debt to them. If there are insufficient funds available then the creditors are short paid. Bear in mind that a house with a large mortgage may be in negative equity and as such is not an asset.

 

If you do have assets of any sort then the OR will want to know all about them with a view to realising their value in order to repay the creditors.

 

Do you have other creditors? Unsecured debts to these people are also included in your bankruptcy and now 'belong' to the Official Receiver. You must not pay them yourself. Note that monthly utility bills and suchlike don't fall into this category and you must continue to pay them as normal.

 

Can you post some more details about your circumstances - assets and other debts particularly?

The only creditor we have is Arrow Global for the amount of £1023 we have had the interview with the official receiver and filled in the questionnaire

 

The only asset I own is half of the property with my husband my share is worth around £50k.

 

I want to try for annulment based on the grounds that the incorrect procedures were not followed, the letter of partition for banruptcy order I never received let alone signed for, therefore I never knew i was to be in court on the 6th of october untill the bankruptcy order was served and it was too late. Am I able to do this and is there a way I can get hold of a solicitor to help me that wont cost me the earth?

 

From reading the literature on all of this it states that I need to make an affidavit verified by a statement of truth saying why the bankruptcy order should not of been made (the reason above)

 

Any ideas on this?

 

Thanks

 

Angie

It appears that your plan to have the bankruptcy annulled is the best option. Have you discussed this course of action with the Trustee?

 

The sworn affidavit is of course necessary. I've never been through the annulment process so I'm not familiar with the procedures. Have you looked through Government's Insolvency website? There's a lot of information there and it may take some time to trawl through it all.

 

This is the address of the Tecnical Manual on the Insolvency website. The part you will need to examine is Chapter 6. Technical Manual Contents
