Personal Insolvency and Bankruptcy

Whilst interest rates have remained low, individuals have often been able to avoid bankruptcy or entering into a formal IVA. An increase interest rates will make servicing their debts more challenging for many and the rise in asset values is already providing an incentive for creditors to push debtors into bankruptcy and/or for trustees in bankruptcy to take action to realise assets.

If you are facing personal insolvency, we will assist you to set down a clear plan of action to deal with the issues that confront you. We will help you to understand the available options and the procedures involved and then work with you to achieve the best result.

We also assist insolvency practitioners throughout the South East advising in relation to investigations, holding debtors to account and the realisation of assets.
