Can I have a bank account while I am bankrupt?

You can have a bank account while you are bankrupt and this is something we will make sure of. This is an essential facility that everyone is entitled to and it is a common misconception that you cannot hold a bank account while bankrupt.

You can also hold a pre-paid MasterCard (APS CashPlus)while you are bankrupt. This is a very useful card to have as it does not allow you to go into debt but gives you the facility of a MasterCard to use for various reasons such as online purchases, car hire, shopping and holidays.

Contact us for more advice on this particular subject.


Will I lose my property and car if I go bankrupt?

Another misconception is that you will lose your property and car. In situations where you have a property you must get specialist advice. In many cases you can retain your property and your car-it is all dependent on value and equity.

In many cases the Official Receiver will allow the person that has been declared bankrupt to keep or re-purchase their asset. We have dealt with many bankruptcies where people have remained in their property. You may have to pay an amount to the Official Receiver to remain in your house, flat or bungalow but this payment will release any interest that the Official Receiver has in your property.

Alternatively it may be better to hand your property back as part of the bankruptcy. When property is involved it is essential to take professional advice – contact us now to discuss your situation.
