Salisbury Crown & County Bankruptcy Court Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, applying for bankruptcy could be an effective way to treat the problem and give you the chance to have a fresh start.

Bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to remain on your Credit History for six years, which can have an impact on your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which may be suitable if you have equity to protect, or a job which is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is the solution you're looking for, then the necessary documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Salisbury 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.
