Controversial Sydney businessman Salim Mehajer has been declared bankrupt by a Federal Circuit Court judge after one of his companies failed to pay a debt of over $200,000 to its creditors.

The order means the estate of the disgraced former Auburn deputy mayor will be managed by a trustee who will take control of his property and financial affairs and deal with his creditors.

The $20,524 legal cost of the bankruptcy application will also come out of his estate.

The 31-year-old is currently behind bars awaiting trial after allegedly faking a car crash in to avoid a court appearance over another matter.  

More to come.
