Trust Deed

A Scottish Trust Deed legally prevents action from your lenders, while enabling you to repay your debts at a pace you can manage. Your unsecured debt repayments will be reduced to an amount you can afford alongside your other important living costs. Most Trust Deeds last four years, and at the end of that time, if they are successfully completed, any unsecured debt you haven't repaid is completely written off.

Bankruptcy

As a last resort, bankruptcy (sometimes also known as sequestration in Scotland) could be your most suitable way out of problems with unmanageable debt. When no other suitable options are available, going bankrupt will write off unaffordable unsecured debts and prevent further action from your lenders. You'll only have to make payments towards those debts if you can afford it, and only for up to three years. Bankruptcy is a serious step with long-lasting consequences and it could cost you your home, if you own it.

MAP (Minimal Asset Process) bankruptcy

MAP was brought in to make sure that the most vulnerable people can get access to the help they need with unmanageable debts. It replaced the LILA (Low Income, Low Asset) scheme for Scottish residents on 1st April 2015.

If you owe less than £17,000, have few valuable assets and no money to pay your lenders, you may be able to apply for bankruptcy through MAP.
