Thank you for your question.

If the house is not in your name then it can't be touched unless you transferred it to your mother on a gratuitous basis within five years of being made bankrupt.

It is suite unusual for you to be on the mortgage and not hold title. Are you simply a guarantor? Check this.

As far a getting someone to sort this out for you call the law Society of Scotland and they will put you onto someone in your area. See www.lawscot.org.uk for contact details.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
