Reasons for your insolvency e.g.
I had bound myself as surety on behalf of the creditors of the company. Unfortunately, because of bad debts the company was unable to pay the claims of the creditors, who then sued me in terms of the suretyships that I had signed. In consequence, my estate was both factually and commercially insolvent and was sequestrated.
Details of assets and liabilities as at the date of sequestration of our estate (that I’ll get from the trustee)
The date when the Master confirmed the First and Final Liquidation and Distribution Account
Confirmation that, save for personal clothing and effects of no commercial value, there are no further assets in the estate for realization. Furthermore, I have no liabilities, save for my monthly commitments referred to in spreadsheet that I will provide if you instruct me to proceed
Confirmation that all the creditors in the Estate reside or carry on business in Gauteng and have had an opportunity to file a claim in the Estate
Confirmation that your estate was not sequestrated under any law prior to the sequestration which you now desire to end
