Do I qualify for MAP?

MAP is a form of bankruptcy for people in very difficult circumstances - helping them write off the unsecured debts they can't afford to pay.

You may qualify if your total assets come to no more than £2,000 in total (excluding a car, which can be worth up to £3,000 if for essential use). You also cannot own, or jointly own, a property or area of land.

How much debt do I need to qualify for MAP bankruptcy?

To apply for bankruptcy in Scotland through MAP, you must owe between £1,500 in unsecured debt (e.g. personal loans and credit cards) and no more than £17,000.

Unfortunately, if you owe less than £1,500 you won't qualify for MAP - but there may still be help available. Here at Wilson Andrews we specialise in insolvency help for Scottish residents.

How much does MAP cost?

Getting help with your debts through MAP will cost a £90 application fee to the Accountant in Bankruptcy (AiB). This can be paid in four instalments, if necessary.

Could we have a joint Trust Deed?

If you have joint debts that you can't afford, you could both enter into a Trust Deed. Although joint Trust Deeds don't exist, both your Trust Deeds will take your joint debts into account.
