bankruptcy public information?

August 10th, 2011 by Questions

I understand that any bankruptcy is part of the public registry, but what I wondered about is exactly how much information is listed. Do they list names and amounts of what is owed to credit card companies and private lenders?

, A licensed trustee said:

The amount of information dep[ends on how far the person doing the looking wants to look. The government listing of persons that have filed includes their name, date of birth, the date of filing, the total value of assets disclosed when they filed, the total liabilities when they filed, and the name of the trustee/firm assigned to the file. So, there is not very much specific detail in the government listing.

BUT if someone were to then contact the trustee handling either the consumer proposal or bankruptcy and asked for a copy of the “creditors’ package” they would have a complete copy of the documents filed.

If some one went to the trouble to look up a person on the government list (and here is a fee to do so) I suspect they would take the next step and contact the trustee on the file for more details.
