1. Essentially what you need here is a vesting order vesting the property back in you under the Insolvency Act, 1986. A court application is required in order to effect this process. This vesting order vests the property, which was assigned to the Official Receiver by the bankruptcy notice back in you, after the process of bankruptcy has been completed. I would advise you to get yourself a solicitor to effect the vesting order for you. Alternatively,if you want to do it yourself, I would suggest you get sample papers from an Insolvency Practitioner and make the application yourself based on copying these vesting order papers. The process will take about six weeks and the assent of the Official Receiver to the property re-vesting in you will be required. You will have to serve a copy of the papers on the Official Receiver.
2. Upon the making of the vesting order, the property will then be yours and you can then do what you want with it. This will also be good for registration of the property in the Land Registry and the removal of any notices made against the property in the Land Registry.
