Im back in need of some urgent advice. As explained in a previous post, im currently paying into an IVA following a failed business that left me in debt. The sudden increase in the Standard Variable Rate has seen my mortgage increase to an all time high and we are really struggling. I am looking into bankruptcy and all that that minefield entails. My questions are:
Is it at all possible to keep my home after bankruptcy? We are currently in negative equity so there is nothing to gain from forcing a sale and renting in this area is marginally more expensive than the mortgage at the moment.
None of the debts are in my wifes name but would she be made bankrupt also?
