Recent case study

Redwood undertook a bankruptcy petition on behalf of an independent school against a former parent who owed over £17,000 in unpaid school fees.

The debtor offered to repay the debt via instalments that would satisfy the debt in 14 years. Given that Redwood had previously identified the debtor to be the owner of several properties, the school did not deem the offer acceptable. A statutory demand and subsequent bankruptcy petition were prepared and served upon the debtor.

The outcome of the case was that the debtor agreed to sell a property and pay the debt to avoid being made bankrupt at an impending hearing. The settlement included the debtor paying our client’s costs, which included our commission charge, all legal fees and interest chargeable under the school’s terms and conditions.
