Do I Qualify Trust Deed Scotland

What is a Trust Deed in Scotland?

A Protected Trust Deed is only available to residents of Scotland and it will help you pay off your unsecured debts in manageable monthly amounts typically over a 4 year period. Only a qualified Insolvency Practitioner can administer a Trust Deed, and payments are based on what you can afford. After the Trust Deed is completed, all your unsecured debts are written off.

One of the advantages of a Protected Trust Deed is that you don’t have to deal with your creditors, we do that for you. A Trust Deed can help protect your house and car. To qualify, you need at least £5,000 of debt and to have been living in Scotland for at least 6 months.

A Protected Trust Deed is just one of the options that we can advise on. To find out what your options are, start with the online form or simply call us. Once you have considered your options, you're in a position to make an informed decision. Our advice is free, with no obligation and no setup costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question? Maybe we have an answer for you here . . .

Your contribution is based on the disposable income remaining once your living costs have been deducted from your income. Most people are much more comfortable once they enter a Trust Deed as they will be making one affordable monthly payment instead of higher, separate payments to their creditors. Try the Trust Deed Wizard for an indication of how much you could expect to pay monthly in your Trust Deed.

Scottish residents with £5000 or more unsecured debt may be eligible for a Trust Deed.

You can qualify as a homeowner, private tenant, council tenant or if you live with your parents. If you own your home, your advisor will explain the process of protecting your house during the initial assessment. Try the Trust Deed Wizard to find out how a trust deed could help you get on top of your finances.

Over 98% of Trust Deed proposals are accepted. If a creditor wanted to object, it would do so in writing within five weeks of your Trust Deed being proposed. Even then, it would only fail if that creditor represented over 33% in the total debt value or over one half in number. If 67% of creditors agree with the proposal, then the other creditors will still be legally bound by its terms, even if they object. In the unlikely event your Trust Deed did fail, the trustee would negotiate your case in an attempt to have it accepted and you will also be advised on other Scottish debt solutions such as the Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS) and Sequestration.
