Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years’ experience. Please be aware that although I will endeavour to reply to you promptly, I am also in full time private practice and so I may not be available to respond immediately and it may also take me a few minutes to prepare a reply. The site will notify you as soon as I respond. I look forward to working with you to answer your question fully.
I am very sorry to read of the above and I imagine how frustrating it must be. I will certainly try to clarify the position for you.
from what you say, do you accept that your son has a beneficial interest in the property please?
thank you. In the circumstances, the trustee in bankruptcy or official receiver should obtain a valuation of your son's beneficial interest in the property which is provided for in rule 31.12.127 of the insolvency rules. It is not for you to obtain this valuation or cover solicitors costs. What the trustee may be asking you for is any evidence of the overall value of the property which they may be able to use in order to value your son's interest. If you have such evidence available, you may optionally decide to provide it to the trustee. However, as above, the responsibility to obtain a valuation and generally deal with your son's interest is with the trustee in bankruptcy not you there are inevitably, as the process continues, you may need to be involved in certain aspects where it affects the property itself if you are a joint owner
I'm glad the above answers all your questions for now. If you have any follow up questions please revert to me.
Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer and see you again in the future I hope.
