Case Study: Mr I - Trustee in Bankruptcy

Enhanced return to creditors as bankrupt's property realised for full market value


Mr I was declared bankrupt on the petition of the Supervisor of his failed IVA; according to his Statement of Affairs, he jointly-owned a property but had no other assets. Following Bridgewood's appointment as trustee in bankruptcy, early contact was made with the bankrupt and his wife to deal with the trustee's interest in the property.

Solution Provided

Bridgewood's highly experienced bankruptcy team were able to deal with the property interest in a speedy and efficient manner, allowing legal proceedings to take possession of the property at an early stage.


Despite the property being in a very poor state of repair, it was realised for full market value within a few months of possession being granted enabling a substantial dividend to be paid with Bridgewood's fees being limited to enable the maximum return to creditors.
