Understanding the Official Receiver

The Official Receiver is now providing an insight into how he is likely to approach certain aspects of his work in dealing with the affairs of a bankrupt.

If you go to the Official Receiver’s website at http://www.insolvency.gov.uk/ and click on the ‘Freedom of Information’ link on the right hand side of the page it will take you to a contents page.  Towards the bottom of that page are two links: ’Technical Manual’ and ‘Case Help Manual’.  Clicking on the former will take you to certain extracts of the OR’s internal manuals.  The latter link will take you to a more detailed commentary on the OR’s options on particular areas of his work.

You will probably find those sections that relate to homes, Income Payment Agreements, Income Payment Orders, Antecedent Transactions and discharge from bankruptcy the most useful.
