UK Bankruptcy Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
It's not listed on Experian or Equifax. I'll try Call Credit also. Baffled. Have you no explanation at all? I mean, have you ever heard of this before?
So my question therefore is that my fiancé & I would like to purchase a house. As a discharged bankrupt, am I allowed to apply for a mortgage? The house won't get seized or anything, will it? Should I be letting the receiver know that I am applying for a mortgage or let him know that my credit files are clear and ask why? Apologies for my ignorance.
Thanks so much.
So I am allowed to apply for a mortgage?
I couldn't understand the remainder of your answer. Prior to bankruptcy, I did attempt to pay off as much as I could physically afford per month, taking advice from CCCS, who wrote to creditors on my behalf, but the phone calls and threatening letters were overwhelming. Hence I petitioned for my own bankruptcy.
"So you should answer yes." I don't understand to what you are referring. Please clarify.
The Court forgot to notify the credit referencing agencies?
I just searched the Registry Trust. I had to input my address. I have moved but it also came back as completely clear of any judgements. Do I need to search under the address where I was living when I petitioned?Amy
