Chadwick v Nash

[2012] B.P.I.R. 70

28th November 2011

High Court


A trustee in bankruptcy made an application for the suspension of the automatic discharge, but it was not filed until two working days before the bankruptcy was due to be discharged. Held: Application refused, notwithstanding that the bankrupt had provided inaccurate and inconsistent information. Trustees who left matters to the last minute ran a very real risk that the court would not exercise its discretion in their favour (Bagnell v Official Receiver [2004] 1 W.L.R. 2832 followed)
