We are especially pleased in 2014 to be able to help people that think that they have to enter bankruptcy as they have negative equity on a property that they either purchased or remortgaged after Nov 30th 2007 where they took out an interest only mortgage generally through a broker and the mortgage was self certificated and took them beyond the age of retirement.
These are mis sold mortgages and we are finding that the claims against the lenders are so substantial that the compensation available is and can be enough to not only clear unsecured debts but also have money left over.
If you feel that you are entering bankruptcy or thinking about it and you have one of these mortgages then we cant wait to speak to you to get the ball rolling!

What We Need To Know
1. What you have got going on around you
2. Examine the options that are feasibly available to you
3. Identify the trigger points as to how you have ended up in the position that you are in.
4. See if there is any chances or claiming any monies back from creditors or loan providers where you may have a legitimate claim for mis sold mortgage or PPI that may have been applied to any loans or credit facilities that yo have ever taken out on the past.
The options are as follows:
Do Nothing- Wait and see what happens, knowing that if you take this option the situation may simply go away, or something could happen to change the landscape of your debt situation, such as a windfall or additional household income.
Personal Bankruptcy- This option should be considered first of all in our opinion with higher debt values.
If you have no assets to speak of, and you have a job or career that will not be affected by a bankruptcy order, and you cannot see any opportunities coming up that are likely to enable you to manage your debts, then a bankruptcy could be a good option for you.
Especially for all those people that have struggled with a debt management plan or individual voluntary arrangement.
IVA (individual Voluntary Arrangement) These are much better than they used to be. The reality is today that if you have a minimum debt level of £7k plus and a disposable income of £80 a month then you are able to apply for an IVA.
An IVA is a legal agreement between you and your creditors, put together by a licensed Insolvency Practitioner or Chartered Accountant that practices in insolvency.
Your creditors are made an offer which is based on your income abilities to repay an amount of money over a 5 year period. Providing 75% of the total amount of debt agrees to the proposal being made then the remaining 25% are committed to agree to the arrangement.
These arrangements usually run over a 5 year period. It is fair to say that you can look at an IVA like an interest free loan payable monthly over 5 years. The only problem is that if your income increases or you have any changes to your circumstances then you will have to pay more into the arrangement.
We often find that an IVA can be used to get creditors under control and all standing in line.
Once this has taken place it is quite feasible for a debtor to make an offer to creditors which is equivalent in fiscal value by a 3rd party who will make a one off payment to clear the IVA.
Debt management Plans- These are very effective in signalling to your creditors that you are in difficulty. The Debt Management provider will contact all of your creditors requesting that interest is frozen on the accounts and for our creditors to be made aware that something has happened but you have taken action to do your best to manage your debts.
The debt management plan is not recorded anywhere. Unlike an IVA which is a legal agreement, stamped by the court and recorded on the insolvency register. This last for 5 years.
In our modest opinion we would say that a Debt Management Plan is a good short term solution which doesn't affect any assets that you have such as a car of finance or a property that you own.
It is a good way of managing creditors until you are in a position to apply something a little more solid. A lot of homeowners choose a Debt Management plan over an IVA purely because they will not be restricted from selling a property, unlike a bankruptcy or IVA where you will need authority from their legal department to sell.
So these are the options apart from specialist negotiation which is often required when the trust has been breached between creditor and debtor.
Creditors often apply hostile approaches towards a debtor simply because they are fed up with trying to deal with them.
We can assist in matters like this but costs will apply and you will need to complete the 3rd Party authority in which you will be enabling an officer of www.bankruptcy.co.uk to speak on your behalf.
