Occurs when an individual is deemed insolvent by a County Court under the provisions of the UK Insolvency Act 1986. A bankruptcy petition can be initiated by the individual in financial distress or his creditors. Once granted, it remains in force for one year. Most lenders have a clause in their mortgage conditions which provides a right to possession on bankruptcy, though this is seldom pursued unless the account goes into arrears. A mortgage lender can require mortgage payments to be made direct by the bankrupt person rather than via an Official Receiver or Trustee in Bankruptcy.
