A relative asked a person to hold onto a large amount of money for them and then declared themselves bankrupt. They said to the person holding the money that they could use money as a deposit on property they wanted to purchase as the person could not use it for at least three years but now they are out of bankruptcy sooner than expected and is now demanding this money back in a civil court claim saying they had oral contract to pay back within 12months. Is this an illegal contract and can the court adjudicate on it . P.S. the person is no longer a bankrupt as they have cleared the debts as bankruptcy have sold a joint property they owned and paid creditors .
