How A Trust Deed Can Help You

A Protected Trust Deed (PTD) is a formal arrangement between someone who owes money (a customer, or debtor), and the people they owe money to (creditors). A PTD is legally binding and administered by a qualified Insolvency Practitioner (IP).

You’re required to make monthly payments to the arrangement (normally for a period of four years). A longer period may be considered, depending on circumstances.

Once you’ve successfully completed a PTD any remaining unsecured debt is written off.

PTDs are only available if you live in Scotland. If you live in England, Wales, or Northern Ireland, an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) can provide a similar solution to a PTD.

Some benefits associated with the PTD:

  • Potentially legally write off up to 85% of your debt.
  • Once creditors have accepted the PTD, all interest and charges are guaranteed to be frozen.
  • Creditor Contact including legal action will be stopped once the PTD has become protected.

Some downsides and risks associated with the PTD:

  • Your trust deed will fail if you don’t maintain your monthly payments.
  • Secured debts can’t be included into the arrangement.
  • Creditors can vote against the trust deed becoming protected.

FAQ's

Will my creditors still be able to contact me if I enter into an arrangement?

Yes they may still contact you, but only while your arrangement is being set up. That’s normal. Once approved your IP (insolvency practitioner) will deal with creditors letters and phone calls directly. If for any reason the creditors still try to contact you, simply inform your IP who will deal with things.

If you have any questions fill in our online form or give us a call to speak with one of our friendly advisors.

I have an attachment of earnings in place can this be stopped?

It is common for some creditors to apply a wage arrestment, also known as attachment of earnings, to collect their debt balance via your earnings. We understand that sometimes this can have a knock-on effect on your day to day life. In some circumstances your IP (insolvency practitioner) will work with your creditors to lift the attachment so you can receive your full wage again.

This agreement will see a repayment amount agreed with your creditor and payable monthly as part of your payment plan. For more information on how this works, please fill in our online form and a senior expert will call you with more details.

What are the costs and fees involved with an IVA OR TRUST DEED?

CMS will never charge for our advice and support. And neither do we charge IVA or Trust deed setup fees.

Once you have spoken to an advisor, explored your options and are happy to proceed you need to provide supporting documents. We’ll check them through and hand them to an IP (insolvency practitioner) assigned as your licensed IP for the duration of your term

The fees of the IP who arranges your IVA or trust deed are always included within your monthly payment and term.

Before the arrangement is accepted your IP will make an agreement with your creditors. Your proposal will include a breakdown of the IP fees. Fees that never impact on the duration of your plan.

Once your plan is accepted CMS receive a application setup commission from the IP. Again, this has no effect on your monthly payment or term.

Remember: If at any stage you decide that you do not wish to go ahead you will never be charged for the advice you have received from us. Our advice is ALWAYS completely free.

What kind of debts can be included?

If you are struggling with your finances, an IVA or an Trust deed may be an perfect way to put all your outstanding debts into one monthly affordable payment.

Many people are unaware of the types of debts that can be included but our friendly experts can clearly talk you through each.

In fact most debts to which a wage arrestment/attachment of earning can be applied can be included within your arrangement.

Please be aware that any secured debts like mortgages, secured loans and car hire purchase cannot be included into your arrangement. Secured against the asset they need to be prioritized and paid on time each month.
