Benefits And Drawbacks of a Trust Deed

A Trust Deed is an application available to Scottish people, to help them pay off their debts efficiently while living a stress-free and peaceful life. It is a legal agreement prepared and administered by a licensed insolvency practitioner(IP), and usually the monthly installments are made in about four years. Can you get an IVA in Scotland? The answer is no because this particular option is not available in Scotland, but Trust Deed is an absolute substitute.


Hassle With Unsecured Creditors:

Once the Trust Deed comes into motion, the unsupported creditors are to leave the individual alone, diminishing all contact, as per in the agreement.

Interests And Fees:

When the Trust Deed is commenced, all or any interests or fee is frozen on the second.

Short-Time Period:

As mentioned above, the Trust Deed lasts for around 4 years, which guarantees a stress-free and peaceful life in just 48 months, unlike other methods of paying off debts which feels more or less endless.

Assessment of Income:

A proper assessment of the individual’s income is made, in which that said individual pays the equal of his monthly income, excluding the day to day expenses which ensures the peace of mind.

Discharge From Remainder Debt:

After the Trust Fund agreement is complete, the individual is discharged from the remainder of his debt, which leads to starting off from a clean slate.



There is unfortunately no way to avoid negative credit rating, which comes along with the Scottish Trust Deed.

Cover For Only Unsecure Debts:

Unfortunately, Trust Deed only covers unsecured debts which means that an individual’s debts which are secured cannot be covered.

Lack of Cover For New Debts:

If an individual is to bring forward any new debts which are not included in the existing Trust Deed, the agreement won’t cover it.
