No I, I did not know. I need to speak to pick up the papers. The owner of the business (it's a pub with flat) is fuming as he believes the business name will suffer and/or police will attend. He opened the last letter which was hand delivered. As I said, I'm going to pick up the papers tomorrow.
What can I expect at this hearing?
Thanks for the quick reply. Briefly, and I firstly I need to find the facts as to what the bankruptcy is for, what's the process for over-turning/appealing that bankruptcy decision. It's somewhat of a life changer.
So on Monday I'll be answering questions about a process I know nothing about. Should I phone the Official Receiver and ask to postpone the hearing?
I had one debt that relates to a private knee operation I had. The operation was pre-pay so paid in full. As I was in my gown waiting to go into surgery, the surgeon said he had changed his mind about the method and instead of using my hamstrings he said he'd use dead people's parts. No mention of cost or signature given and it was in dispute for years as they wanted an extra £4,500.
The operation was I think in 2006/7, so it's a very old debt that was in dispute via letter until I moved.
I have checked the register and the bankruptcy was served at an even older address and lists my occupation as restaurant manager (which was true) and they have "served" it at my old work.
I don't have assets to speak of, i.e. nothing big like a car or house etc. but am in part time work.
Firstly I was aghast at this bankruptcy award, but having looked at the register which states I'm discharged in November 2015, it may be a way to put this matter behind me cheaply and to my benefit without the expense of legal assistance (although you're cost is very reasonable lol).
Great job. I have the facts I need to go forward with this. I'll ask for the postponement and if that's not possible I'll go in on Monday and be upfront. Great job :-)
