Hi

 

I have been declared bankrupt by my local council. I have simply zero assets no bank accounts. Trustee have sent me forms to fill they are saying it's a criminal offence not to fill these and at the same time want me to sign a declaration to the bankruptcy act saying I understand if I don't give them what they info they want they can have me arrested!

 

I'd really appreciate some advice on this matter

 

Thanking you

Do you have an issue with completing the forms truthfully?

 

If you have no assets : state that. They can't get blood from a stone / demand assets you don't have.

It could be considered a criminal offence if you don't cooperate with the offical appointed by the court to deal with the bankruptcy. So if this person is the court appointed official, you should complete and return the form as requested.

 

If you don't have any assets, then the council won't get anything and will have wasted their money making you bankrupt.


We could do with some help from you.

Hi Many thanks for the replies . Only issue u had was most of the forms will be empty as I don't even have a bank account. I tend to use cash call me old fashioned. I don't trust them. I'll send off the forms and see what they say next. I wanted to hear from anyone who has dealt with a trustee? Can they force me to leave my current home ie to downsize? I'm in rented accommodation I have mentioned already to my landlord and he's willing to let me stay as long as I don't default on rent so the council making me bankrupt won't effect that.

Hi guys

 

I've never claimed a penny in benefits. I work a little which is min wage just enough to pay for food and rent.

 

Sorry not been online much due to my illness. I did fill the forms out as advised and whatever didn't apply I put n/a

 

The debt was for 'council tax' which is at £7000 at present. I have just seen a letter from them with the words DO NOT IGNORE - action before court ! I honestly do not understand what they think they will achieve by this harassment. The money I do not have its simple if i did it would have been paid.

 

Can anyone advise they are obviously taking me to court now? Maybe for a BRO or worse arrest warrant? I haven't opened the letter yet too scared if I'm honest

Hi,

To be honest, I'd open the letter also fill in whatever they have sent you.

 

There's no way they would go for an arrest warrant, what would that achieve.

 

I'd fill in the forms as truthfully as you can then wait and see what they come back with.
