I've tried to help a friend on this and researched unsuccessfully for an answer so I'm hoping someone with more knowledge can help.


Cutting a long story short

a few years ago my friend had a business which wasn't cutting it financially


he defaulted on an account he believed was in the business name

- turns out it was taken out in his name personally


they managed to get a CCJ which was then transferred to the high court - the original debt was circa £3,500 by the time it had been through the courts with legal fees the debt was closer to £8,000. He has been making monthly payments for approx 3 years and was getting a monthly statement showing how much he'd paid off but these stopped a few months ago


- on chasing up statements recently he learned that the company to whom the debt was owed has filed for bankruptcy

- he's continuing to make his payments


my question I guess is

does he continue to make payment to the (high court enforcement) people he's paying and should they now be providing statements or does he need to contact the administrator?

Speak to the High Court Enforcement company about this, as they will need to deal with it.



Payments would continue but HCEO might keep hold of payments on their account, waiting to find out where future payments need to go to.



There may be a trustee acting on behalf of the creditors of the bankrupt and they will distribute the money as required.


But don't stop paying as that would break the agreement and cause more problems.

We could do with some help from you.

He wasn't going to stop it was just a statement of what is owed and what's been paid (some was paid directly to the company before HCEO got involved) the statements that came from the claimant showed the actual debt as such, had been paid it was just the legal costs and court fees etc but he just wants to know where he is.


The HCEO aren't the most cooperative bunch but maybe if he writes to them formally he may be able to find out.
