So sorry to hear that, it's an awful thing to be going through.
Have you made the Halifax an offer at all, or have they hinted they will settle for a lesser amount? I do hope you can avoid going bankrupt.
All the best and good luck.

Sorry to hear how things have gone. It may be that bankruptcy is your better option. I have also heard that a bankrupt may, in the future, get discharged quicker if the debt was due to 'unfortunate circumstances' under the new Enterprise Bill, which I believe will come into force in 2004, see 'http://www.legislation.hmso.gov.uk/acts/acts2002/20020040.htm It's certainly a point to take up with a solicitor/bankruptcy specialist. Please let us know how you get on. Good Luck.
