Whether you own a business or are facing financial issues as an individual, our experienced bankruptcy solicitors in Rayleigh can be there to help and advise you through your options, as well as supporting you throughout the process you take. We can help at any stage of an insolvency or bankruptcy case.

Before we provide legal assistance, and where necessary, we can refer you to specialists such as liquidators, administrators or trustees in bankruptcy. We also have extensive experience as specialists in debt recovery.

What is Bankruptcy?

If you do not make payments on a debt that you owe, the creditor you borrowed the money from can take you to court in attempt to receive what they are owed. Bankruptcy is the legal process you can go through if you are struggling financially and cannot pay your debts or if the creditor decides that they wish to make you bankrupt.

Specialist advice is important to seek, as bankruptcy is not a decision to take lightly. If you want to challenge or annul a bankruptcy order that a creditor has applied for against you, we can advise you on your options.

Whilst there is no minimum debt amount required for a person to apply for their own bankruptcy, the rules are different if someone else is applying to make you bankrupt. If you owe £5,000 or more to creditors, they can apply to make you bankrupt. An IVA (individual voluntary agreement) supervisor can also make you bankrupt if you do not keep to the terms of the IVA.

What is Insolvency?
