How often is a Trust Deed reviewed?
An annual review of your Protected Trust Deed will take place and involves a review of your personal circumstances and whether your income and expenditure details have changed.
Unless there has been a substantial change in your ability to repay your debt, the Trust Deed annual review is more of a formal process which is required to show your position hasn’t changed.
What happens after signing the Trust Deed?
Once Trust Deeds have been signed it will be published on the ROI and within 7 days of registration, your creditors will be written to with details of your Income and Expenditure, Statement of Affairs and other statutory documents.
The Trust Deed will then be registered as protected following the expiry of the 5 week period from the date of the initial publication on the ROI, provided a third in value or a majority in the number of creditors do not object to the Trust Deed proposal.
How long will a Trust Deed last?
A Trust Deed normally lasts 4 years but depending on your personal circumstances it may be a longer period.
The Debt Arrangement Scheme may last for a shorter, or longer period of time and this really comes down to how much debt you have and how quickly it may be paid off. That said, the maximum length of time that you can be in a Debt repayment Programme under the Debt Arrangement Scheme is 10 years.
Can I keep my car in a Trust Deed?
You can retain a car up to the value of £3,000 and it will not be considered an asset in your Protected Trust Deed. Even if the car has a value greater than £3,000, as long as you need your car for travel to work purposes then in most cases you will be able to keep your car.
If, at the end of your Trust Deed, your car is valued at more than £3,000 then your payment period could be extended to take account of the car’s value and/or a third party could pay the amount in full or by instalments during the Trust Deed period.
