Informal measures can be sought out to try and help pay off your debts.
These measures include –
Debt Arrangement Schemes (DAS)
A Debt Arrangement Scheme is a scheme that can help people repay their debts in a manageable way, removing the threat of court action from their creditors.
Through a Debt Arrangement scheme, you set up a Debt Payment Programme (DPP), making the one regular payment which is shared between your creditors.
A Trust Deed is a formal agreement between you and your Creditor(s) utilising a third party (the ‘Trustee’) to administer and repay towards the debt. This repayment is based on affordable payments.
The agreement is legally binding, with reduced payments, typically made over 4 years, at the end of which any unsecured debts are written off.
Trust Deeds are for people with more than £5,000 of unsecured debt.
‘Sequestration’ is the name for the process of bankruptcy in Scotland.
Like other forms of debt management, the debtor’s assets are passed over to a trustee to manage the sequestration, sale of assets and distribution of the proceeds realized from the sale.
Minimal Asset Process (MAP Bankruptcy)
Minimal Assets Process, or MAP bankruptcy is a form of bankruptcy that can used by those with low income and few assets.
