    Use a broker.

    Usually in the insurance market there are some underwriters who are looking to expand their book, some looking to stabilise, and some looking to reduce. The broker will know who is doing what at any particular time.

    Yeah I'm trying them that was the only thing I could find.

    I never intended to go bankrupt but I had 1 company take me for £3500 when they went under (I was on the books they were earning a fortune as they got paid final stage payments off 4 sites they were also doing 10 heating installs a week for a housing association) I then set up self employed and did alot of work for a bad builder ( got my money in the end but by that time I had to pay all my bills and my mate using a credit card) Tried for years to get it under control then finally decided I couldnt handle it anymore.

    cant convey over your circumstances but,

    b-in-law went bancrupt and anything he got like ppi claim was all payable to his creditors, and they will find out!!!
    best to leave all claims due for the 6 years and when you do recover it will be all yours to keep.

    Well spoke to 3 brokers today 2 are getting back to me tomorrow and 1 got me a price there and then which was £580 so it was around £130 more than what I got quoted on compare the market so not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

    Yeah a friend told me about that he was going to claim loads back apparently in the thousands then they said oh you've been bankrupt? none of the money will come to you.

    I was always quite switched on when it came to additional charges the only one I had was in my business loan which after I packed in I put into a personal loan as it was a smaller interest rate.

    When I read this post a couple of weeks ago I was in the process of a ppi claim. My heart stopped when I read it.
    I have just been informed that my total payout WAS £3897.08.
    The bank took great delight in telling me that it has been paid in the bankruptcy lawyer people!
    Apparently if I had claimed it in 2 months time they would not have been able to touch it!
    Lucky white heather anybody? Lol.

    Edit to add. Just found out that I would have lost the payout no matter how long it took to claim it as the receivers would always argue that the original loan and ppi were a major factor in the bankruptcy in the first place.
    If anybody has been bankrupt in the past then it is pointless even thinking about making a ppi claim. The powers that be will always take it and say that it will be used to help pay off your debts but in reality,with the sums involved, it will just get lost in lining the lawyers pockets.
    Another harsh lesson learned from buying a house just when the market crashed soon followed by a wife's redundancy!
