Bankruptcy And Its Effect Upon Your Home
Should you enter into bankruptcy, whether voluntary or involuntary, a Trustee is appointed to
manage your estate and does so by taking charge of your income streams, assets and
This will often include the family home should it be in your sole name or joint names with
your spouse. In certain circumstances a home that is being disposed of into your spouse’s
name recently can be clawed back into the pool of assets.
Should you find yourself in financial difficulties or you are uncertain about your future income
stream then perhaps it would be wise to approach your lawyer and accountant early so as to
take every possible step to minimise the future risk to your family home.
