The third party that paid off the money and other rent arrears that the judgement was for were members of my family and I have to pay the monies back to all of them.
The property though leased by the church up till now could not get a tenant to rent it has remained empty from the day the lease was signed. We were just church members who trusted the pastor of the church who was a friend to the landlord.
The second property which I am contesting again the same landlord took this one over and said he would deal with the tenant directly. this was a verbal discussion between himself and the pastor. I think that tenant has since left the place and they have not been able to find him, then he decided to come after the trustee of which I am no loner a trustee
I hope this helps
The landlord made the bankruptcy application before the rent was paid. It was a rent arrears of over 2 years. The church could not pay bankruptcy judgement was issued and the two trustees were made bankrupt. I have a small business that I run and was quite emotional about the whole business. The bankruptcy I felt would affect my business as the only director and would be difficult for me to run the business if I chose to sit out the bankruptcy, so I set out to get it annulled and was told the only way would be to pay off all the people I owe money to credit cards, loans etc and the rent arrears
No. The annulment was successful because all debtors were paid off as expected before annulment. Petitioned the court with evidence that all debts had been paid and bankruptcy was annulled last year october
we approached him and said we would like to surrender the lease, he refused even though he knows the place has never been rented even up till now. He sought to continue to charge rent
Thanks for your response. Was not the answer I wanted but I suspected it would be. How then can I survive this. Are you saying there is no loop hole any where to get out of this.
