    • Hi, does anyone know what the law says regarding debts? My dad owes a certain company some money, and they sent a notice for the seizure of movable properties in our home. This is ridiculous since the stuff in our home is bought with our own money. I don’t believe that we should be held accountable for our parent’s debts! Furthermore, my parents are seperated. My dad havn’t been home for like 6-7 years, even though they are not officially divorced. Im prepared to fight this seizure of properties nonsense all the way. Can anyone please inform me if it is against the law to deny them? Or if it is within my rights as a singapore citizen to hold on to my own property?

      Since you haven't severed you ties with your parents, this is called inheritance.

      many people get positive inheritance, like properties, CPF.

      Meanwhile, yours spit equally among siblings (mum-50%, rest spit equally)  negative inheritance. icon_lol.gif

      usually only banks and government related organization can do that. unless your dad also signed some legal documents to use the flat (if its under his name) as mortage to the loan. so this 'comapny' we are curious is wha company? what nature? as long as the home is under your dad's name and dad had indeed signed some shit then sorry to say bad things lah.

    • Not divorce but seperated ? So your properties may still be held jointly. Quickly go to a lawyer and have him apply for an interlocutory injunction for it.

    • If I am not wrong....

      you will need to produce receipts or proof of purchase under your name.

      i am not sure if you claim the items after or before the officer take away items.

      Also, please ask your mother to file for divorce soon. Request the court to remove the debt from her name. 

      As long as your mom and dad are still married legally, the debts are jointly owned. 

      Please consult with a legal advisor... 

      Neglect is a valid reason for divorce. 6-7 years is a long time...don't wait any longer.

      for cpf not really, unlie the parent made a nomination and give cpf to you after heshe pass on. else you can also nominate your other relatives instead of child or parents can be done.

      I suggested TS should contact Insolvency & Public Trustee's Office soon as this is the government agency which is in charge of bankrupt and you can get your legal answer more accurately : www.ipto.gov.sg

    • 17. What happens if parties claim ownership to the seized property? 
      Where another party alleges that the seized items belong to him/her and not the judgment debtor, the Court will have to adjudicate as to who the rightful owner of these items is. This is by way of an Interpleader Summons and heard at an "Interpleader Hearing". At the Interpleader Hearing, the party claiming the seized items will have to prove that the seized items belong to him/her. If he/she fails to do so, the Court will order that the disputed items be auctioned off in satisfaction of the judgement debt.
