I declared myself bankrupt at the county court on the 7th August 2009.I have recently received a letter from the insolvency service which reads as follows :-I refer to the bankruptcy order made against you on 7th August 2009I am writing to inform you that your bankruptcy file will shortly be transferred to theregional trustee and liquidator unit (RTLU) for this office.The RTLU will deal with any assets remaining in your estate and payments that may be made to your creditors.I have recently received some cash and need to know if I will be liable to hand it over or if I can keep it.Is it safe in my bank or can they access this information,should I transfer it to someone elses account or should I remove it from the bank asap ???? What other assets can they look at ????

Yes I understand.As a I am a new expert for the avoidance of any misunderstanding what is your question of me?
please refer to my original question
Good afternoon,I am sorry for the delay I was called away from my PC.I am just typing your answer now. FEF E SMITH41084.5311422454
Good afternoon,Any property but not income which has been acquired by or devolved upon you since the commencement of the bankruptcy proceedings but before your discharge is after acquired property that the trustee can claim.This is even if you only become aware of it after the discharge. It is therefore totally relevant to your position that you establish if you are discharged or not. As a general rule there is automatic discharge after 12 months unless the receiver has put anything else into place.If you can discover this information for me I can then advise you further. I will be on line after 10 am tomorrow and give you a more informed view at that time.Best wishes FE
