Whether or not your home and car are at rick depends on the following:

1. the amount of equity in the vehicle (i.e. the value of the vehicle less any loans against the vehicle);

2. Whether or not you are up to date on the payments;

3. the provincial exemptions in Nova Scotia.

So what you are best to do is to contact a local trustee, provide them with the necessary details concerning the property in question and they will be able to advise you whether or not there is a risk to any of it (although, in most cases people are able to retain their residence and their vehicle, but you should confirm this with the trustee).
