It is common for people who are experiencing financial adversity to be concerned and stressed about losing their family home. If this is your situation, please do not stress, we have many tools available to us to help you save your home. Whilst everyone’s circumstances are different, below are some examples of some of the things we can do to help resolve financial problems and save your family home.
If you have only a few creditors that can be marshalled into an informal agreement, we can propose to your creditors an informal agreement that involves a payment arrangement for the resolution of your debt and this will save your home. If we are unable to marshal your creditors into an informal agreement, we can take a very similar approach using a Debt Agreement.
If you qualify for a Debt Agreement with your debt, income, and assets within required guidelines, we can propose a payment arrangement for up to 5 years for resolution of your debt and this will save your home. When a Debt Agreement is properly approved, all your creditors will be bound by the arrangement. For more information about Debt Agreements click here
If you do not qualify for a Debt Agreement then Bankruptcy may be a good option for you. For example, if you own your home jointly with your partner and your partner does not need bankruptcy, we can enter into an agreement with your non-bankrupt partner to buy out your equity in your home and the money can be paid by a payment arrangement. The bankruptcy will resolve your debts, and your partner’s agreement will save the family home.
Part IV Composition
If you own the family home solely in your own name, we can look at whether your creditors would accept a Part 4 Composition. A Part 4 Composition will marshal your creditors and annul your bankruptcy. Typically, it would involve a payment arrangement that will resolve your debts and enable your house to be saved.
