My brother is living with his girlfriend (though no bills or council tax payments in his name). He would like to register as living at my house and go bankrupt. He doesn't want to register at his girlfriend's house to go bankrupt. He would for the most part be living with her but would be officially registered at mine.
He's been in debt and living in South America but came back to the UK about 6 months ago.
Would there be any risk to me or my credit rating if I allowed him to register as living at my address and then he filed to go bankrupt from my flat?
Answer: The risk may be you are party to fraud. The address where your brother is living is what is to be used for his bankruptcy, by using any other address, he is not being truthful, which could very well be seen as fraud.
I hope this has answered your question.
