Bankruptcy – is it the right option for you?

Going bankrupt is one option for clearing your debts and making a fresh start, but it can have serious consequences.  Therefore, bankruptcy should only be considered as a last resort, once all other options have been explored and exhausted.

Contact the experts at HJS Recovery today for a confidential discussion about your situation and whether bankruptcy is the best option for you.

What happens when you apply for bankruptcy?

In bankruptcy, an appointed Trustee will take control of all your assets.  The Trustee has a duty to realise them and use the funds to pay your creditors.

In bankruptcy you are allowed to keep essentials for living and tools of your trade.  However, any valuable cars, furniture and jewellery will all be sold. If there is equity in your property, then this will also be realised.

Your bank accounts may be closed and your credit cards stopped. There are restrictions placed on you, which may affect the type of work you can do and you will be unable to act as a company director during bankruptcy.  The Trustee may also seek a contribution from your income if you are in regular employment.

 

What are the alternatives to bankruptcy?

It really depends on your individual circumstances, which is why it’s important to seek professional advice as soon as your debts start to become unmanageable. The sooner your seek advice the likely more options will be available to you, such as debt consolidation, individual voluntary arrangements, or informal arrangements.
