New thresholds for bankruptcy proceedings

Currently a park owner is able to petition for bankruptcy proceedings against a debtor who owes a debt of £750 or more.

From 1 October 2015 the Government proposes to raise this limit to £5000. The aim of increasing the minimum amount of debt required for bankruptcy proceedings is to prevent this method of enforcement being used for low level debts. Before the proposal can be implemented the Government will require Parliamentary approval.

If the Government’s proposal is implemented this will reduce the number of enforcement options available to park owners when they are attempting to recover debts of less than £5000.
