Many people are not aware of debt management solutions that are available to them. That’s where we can help. We can present the most suitable options for your financial circumstances to help you take back control of your debt.

In Scotland, Sequestration is a form of insolvency and may be suitable if you can’t pay back your debts in a reasonable time. Assets you own, such as your house or car, could be sold to pay off your debts. If your assets are worth more than your debts, or if all of your regular payments are up to date and you can afford to keep paying them,  it is important to consider that sequestration may not be the right solution for you at this time.

When looking into Sequestration, it’s important to know all of the benefits and risks associated with this.
