If you declare bankruptcy can you keep your vehicle? | Paul J. Pickering | The Must See Trustee

If you declare bankruptcy can you keep your vehicle?

If you declare bankruptcy:

    • You can keep a vehicle that is valued up to $6,600 dollars and no lein on it.
    • If it is worth more than that $6,600, you will be required to pay the trustee the excess value
    • If the vehicle is leased or financed, the leasing company has the right to repossess the vehicle, but as long as you keep making the payments they will often allow you to keep it
    • If you are leasing a vehicle, consider surrendering the vehicle and get something less expensive to reduce your monthly
  • If you do wish to surrender your vehicle, discuss the options with the Licensed Insolvency Trustee

Paul J. Pickering and Associates Limited (formerly Paul J. Pickering Limited) was founded in 1990 with the ideas and thought of helping individuals deal with personal debts and the process of financial rehabilitation.

Paul Pickering graduated from the Ivey School of Business, University of Western Ontario in 1976. In 1980 Paul received his Chartered Accountants designation and his Trustee licence in 1988.

While working for a national insolvency firm, Paul saw the need of providing financial services on an individual basis without the structure of a large imposing firm. On November 1, 1990, the firm was born.

Since 1990, the firm has continued to provide one on one service to London and area. All facets of the Bankruptcy process or Proposal process are conducted within the office. Unlike other firms, we do not use contract facilities to provide the counselling required under the legislation.

All consultations are free of charge because we encourage people to understand the process. We leave the decision to the individual as to how they wish to resolve their financial situation.

Our goal is to treat everyone facing financial difficulty with dignity and respect.
