When you apply for bankruptcy you declare your income, debts and assets etc.
In most cases there will be a flurry of communications with the Official Assignee's representatives at the time of applying for bankruptcy, and in the few weeks thereafter. Some people never hear anything further but it is important to remember that the bankruptcy rules still apply. This includes things like advising the OA if your circumstances change and being aware that the OA may claim assets that you acquire during the bankruptcy. So, if for example, you saved up some money during the bankruptcy that money could be seized by the OA. If they found out about it after your discharge there would still be risk.
Recently we have noticed a flurry of communications from the OA to people who have been bankrupt for some time. The OA is seeking detailed information about the bankrupt's current circumstances. If you receive such a letter it is very important that you reply accurately, and on time. Our consistent experience with the OA is one of professionalism and reasonable flexibility, however, they do not tolerate misleading information or the failure to adhere to deadlines. If you cannot keep to a deadline it is important that you seek a formal extension before the deadline date (which will probably be granted if the request is reasonable). If you have any concerns about your information we can help you with the issues and by negotiating with the OA if there are issues.
