Case Studies

The business was sold as a going concern under vendor finance terms and eligible employees received compensation from FEG. An undervalue transaction claim against the bankrupt’s daughter was settled amicably with the daughter granting a Power of Attorney for the sale of her residential unit.
  • Mr B had transferred his residential property into a Family Trust as part of Family Court consent orders. A complicated undervalue transaction claim was successfully settled after obtaining a section 139ZQ notice from AFSA.
  • Mr N had purchased a significant quantity of gold bullion shortly prior to bankruptcy which he had not disclosed and later claimed was stolen. Three (3) search and seizure warrants were obtained from the Court and contemporaneously actioned in conjunction with the WA Police Department.
  • Mr A - The administration of this estate was transferred from AFSA seven months after the date of bankruptcy. The debtor was non-cooperative and attempted to resist the bankruptcy claiming constitutional deficiencies with the Bankruptcy Act. Legal proceedings were necessary to take possession of two residential properties however, arrangements were subsequently made to allow his 99-year-old father suffering from dementia to remain in one residence until his passing.
