Luton County Bankruptcy Court Information

Attending Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to calling the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to weigh up your options.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to stay on your Credit Report for six years, which will influence your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another method of insolvency is an IVA, which may be best suited if you have equity to protect, or an occupation that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If personal bankruptcy certainly is the answer you're looking for, then the necessary paperwork will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Luton we have included the court details below. You only need to contact the court if you already have everything prepared, including your Statement of Affairs and Debtor's Petition, and you are ready to finalise the Bankruptcy Order.

To arrange a consultation you can complete this online form, and an experienced Advisor will be in touch to assess your situation and advise you accordingly.
