question category: Bankruptcy
My husband has been made bankrupt. Will we lose our house.
I have just had a phone call from the Official Receiver - wishing to talk about the bankruptcy order from the Inland Revenue (in my husbands name). This was the first I knew about it. My husband has owed the Inland Revenue a lot of money for many years. He is self employed and hasn't filed tax return for 7 years. He has basically buried is head in the sand and refused to tackle the matter - despite me asking him time and time again. We are now at the point of no return - bankruptcy. Our house is in my name only - we couldn't get a joint mortgage in 2004 when we brought the house due to his credit rating. I have not worked since 2004 (bringing up our children) and so my husbands earnings have paid the mortgage every month. Do we still stand to lose our home?
