Re: bankruptcy

If you are made bankrupt then your property may be of interest to the Official Receiver and possibly be at risk. This will very depend on whether there can be anything to gain from the property to pay towards the bankruptcy. It could be that there are other methods of dealing with the debt that avoid the bankruptcy. If you contact a free debt adviser and go through in greater detail they should be able to identify if the property is at risk and if there are other options available to you.
