What Address Do I Use If Going Bankrupt?

Written by  Jon

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.

If you have a serious debt problem, bankruptcy can free you from your debts within 12 months. As a solution for dealing with serious debt, bankruptcy is a last resort. Other debt solutions need to be explored first, to help determine if bankruptcy is the right debt solution for you.


Your financial affairs are put into the hands of an Official Receiver or Trustee, who will control all your assets - and if you own a property, this will also be included. These will be sold and the money used to pay as much as possible to your creditors.


There are consequences to bankruptcy which will affect your finances and work life. You may struggle to borrow money, for example, and will not be able to apply for certain jobs.


For some, bankruptcy is the right option and will put an end to pressure from creditors. Our team of experts are on hand to advise on the best solution to your debt problems - call now on 0800 002 9951.
