Expert:  TexasAtty replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry, the question wasn't showing it was in the UK when I picked up. It is posted in the US law section but I will move it to the correct area. No need to reply, that will only delay another expert picking up.

Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

Good evening. Thank you for the question. It’s my pleasure to assist you.

I am in the United Kingdom.

Can we have as much background detail to your question as possible please including details of the charge? Thank you

Hello Stuart a gentleman in the uk has a bankruptcy charge on him in 2006 and u need to find details of the bankruptcy order. His name is***** 56 Cotswold Meadow, Witney, Oxfordshire, OX28 5FB

Hello StuartPlease give me a call on 07708 340749 if you need toRegardsDavid
Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

It’s possible to do a K 16 Bankruptcy Land Charges search at Plymouth Land Registry and it will come up with this information that you will see here on the form K18.

However, that’s the only information which is available. It would then be necessary to contact the court to see whether they have any records.

I could not find a sample search from the Land Charges department and this one is from a private organisation which offers the service obviously for a fee.

If you can let me know exactly what it is with this charge, I can advise you further.

Does that answer the question? Can I answer any specific points arising from this?

Please do not forget to use the rating service to rate my answer positively. If you don’t give me a positive rating, I don’t get paid for my time.

You may get the impression that the thread closes after rating, but it does not, it remains open and we can still exchange emails if anything needs clarification.

Kind regards

Hello StuartWill this give details of the bankruptcy order in regards ***** ***** he owes monies to and the terms of payment etc etcRegardsDavid
Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

No. It won’t. It only gives the information you can see.

It’s unlikely that the court would have that but it may be on the file.

However if the bankrupt owed someone else some money, it’s likely that whatever money was owed to anybody is now lost under the terms of the bankruptcy unless there was a charge against property.

You can let me have the background detail, there may be another way round this. It’s very difficult to answer you fully, in a vacuum of facts. Kind regards

Expert:  Stuart J replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. So far so good. An exciting day tomorrow then?!

So who is the current owner of the property?

Was the property bought by the current owner from Simon James and if so, why was the entry not removed by the solicitors at the time?

Have you tried to get hold of Sandra Crook?

I need to know the background to the order and what it is that is the problem of what you want to happen. Thanks
