The Circumstances | Kangs Bankruptcy Proceedings Defence Solicitors

Having paid part of the amount due under the Settlement Agreement, our client encountered unforeseen financial difficulties going to result in him being unable to continue payments thereby placing him in breach of the Agreement.

Such breach of the settlement would have resulted in the outstanding sum becoming immediately due thereby exposing our client to enforcement proceedings and, potentially, facing a Petition for his bankruptcy.

Being declared bankrupt would have had a devastating effect on our client, his business and his family.

How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Liquidator Claims Defence Solicitors

Upon being instructed by our client of his inability to adhere to the terms of settlement, Kangs Insolvency Team:

  • attended him obtaining full details of the circumstances which had arisen leading to his anticipated breach of the Settlement Agreement
  • obtained detailed instructions upon questions that he would inevitably be asked
  • advised him upon his position, and the appropriate course to adopt in the light of his reduced financial circumstances
  • entered into detailed negotiations on his behalf seeking to extend the period of time allowed to him in order to discharge his debt, given his present situation.

As a result of the negotiations conducted by the Team at Kangs Solicitors, the effect that the unforeseen detrimental financial circumstances had played in causing the considerable delay in our client discharging his debt was accepted, a new repayment period was agreed resulting in our client being able to avoid Bankruptcy Proceedings being issued against him.

Naturally, our client was extremely grateful for this successful result achieved by the Team at Kangs Solicitors on his behalf.
