Debt Relief Act (Northern Ireland) 2010

Article 208R: Fraudulent dealing with property obtained on credit

This Article makes it an offence if the debtor disposes of property obtained on credit which he has not paid for, and similarly penalises the knowing recipient of such property. No offence is committed if the disposal or acquisition was in the ordinary course of the debtor’s business, but particular attention will be paid to the price paid for the property. The offence may be committed before the application for the DRO has been made, and during the application process.
