  • As a Trustee in Bankruptcy, Ross Thomson is often required to think outside the box. As well as creative thinking, Ross brings compassion to the table.

    For Ross, it’s important to see the people behind the financial problem –not just numbers.

    Ross recently helped a bankrupt client who lives in a retirement village with her seriously ill husband.

    The unit she & her husband live in is not owned by them, but subject to a 20-year lease.

    The money to be repaid by the management was due only at sale, when the client finally left the retirement village.

    Sale of the unit was likely to take several years &, if he did sell the couple’s unit, Ross realised he would be effectively evicting them from their home, without resources or family to help them.

    Ross decided to contact the retirement village management & put a proposal to them that they prepay some of the moneys they would otherwise pay the client.

    The village management considered the proposal & have agreed to prepay some of the moneys otherwise due.

    The client is relieved that she will not be evicted & can now concentrate on helping her husband through his health issues.

    The moneys paid represented about 75% of what would have been available to creditors if they waited two years.

    It is a win for the client and for the creditors.
