Advising trustees of a deceased debtor
We acted for the trustees of a deceased debtor's estate on a claim against the debtor's surviving spouse using s.421A Insolvency Act 1986 to require payment into the bankruptcy estate for the value lost to the estate under the joint tenancy.
Helping an elderly client out of bankruptcy
We supported the family of an elderly bankrupt who wished to raise funds to repay a long-standing bankruptcy. We obtained the agreement of the Trustee in Bankruptcy that the dwelling-house had ceased to be comprised as an asset in the bankruptcy and successfully challenged the calculation of the payment in full figure.
