  • Tenant vacated and subsequently became Bankrupt owing rent.

    Following the issuance of a Section 21(4)(a) the tenant vacated my property as requested. However he left owing rental arrears of £2,500. Subsequent to his departure I have discovered that he applied for and was granted Bankruptcy; automatic discharge of which will be after 12 months. I was not invited to become a creditor and was not notified of the insolvency proceedings. If I wait until after the date of discharge and submit a small claim via a County Court, will the Court still be able to accept my petition bearing in mind the aforementioned Bankruptcy proceedings?

    granted Bankruptcy, then you have no chance.

    The miscreant has been deemed, by law, to have no money.
    Even if you were told about his application, he had no property ( was renting )
    so what can they take off him.
    Needs a car for work.

    i have sat in a bancrupcy court, and the applicant had no money, nothing
    in the bank, no house, so his creditors could not receive one penny.
    So I think you are stuffed, but I am no expert, but IF you were one of his
    creditors ( and you say you are not ) you can't go after him after he is discharged,
    You maybe able to persue your claim after his discharge ( which is good for you if you can, but I cant answer that one )

    Others may be able to enlighten you further.
