What is a Bankruptcy Petition

If an individual owes you more than £5,000 and they have failed to repay you, you may be able to make an application to declare that individual bankrupt.

A Bankruptcy Petition is an application for a Bankruptcy Order to be made against an individual which a creditor can present to the Court on the grounds that an individual is unable to pay their debts.

Whilst there are other ways to try and recover monies that are owed to you by an individual, it may be that you have been unable to recover the monies owed from the individual.

If a Bankruptcy Order is made following the presentation of a Bankruptcy Petition, the individual’s assets may be taken and sold to pay off the debt owed to you.
