Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, a sale can normally proceed when the Seller has been made bankrupt. Your Solicitor would normally deal directly with the Trustee in Bankruptcy's Solicitor or the bankrupt may have the permission to use his own Solicitor who will then make sure that the Sale proceeds are paid to the Trustee.
Once you instruct your Solicitor, he will be of course be told who is to deal with and if it is the Bankrupt's Solicitor, he will request confirmation from the Solicitor that the Trustee is happy for the sale to proceed.
I hope this assists and if so, I would be grateful if you could leave feedback with 4 or 5 stars at the top of your screen, before you leave the site today.
Hi, there would be no harm in you contacting the Trustee directly. He will be willing to sell provided you are buying the property at market value. I hope this helps.
Hi, if there are no Estate Agents involved, he will probably want to see 3 valuations from local Estate Agents as he is unlikely to get your Surveyor's word for it and to protect himself, he will need to get independent valuations carried out.
If you could leave feedback for me, that would be great.
All the best Andrew
