if I am declared bankrupt in NZ does that make me autonmatically bankrupt in singapore?
Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
bankruptcy is just for the country where the order is made, and does not apply anywhere else.
r u sure about that
Only as sure as 33 years practice in this area will make me.
i am buying a property in singapore and they want some proof of ownership of my apartment in NZ. I seem to have lost all my documents pertaining to my NZ property. how can I go about getting some ownership deed or title. By the way I still have a mortgage on the property. do I go to the bank or to land records?
Under the computerised title system there are no paper titles in New Zealand. All information is on line. You should ask the lawyer who acted on the purchase to provide a copy of the current title. Your bank will also have copies.
