Trust Deeds Explained 

Now you know the basics, let’s see Trust Deeds explained a little further. In order to apply for a Trust-Deed you must enlist the help of an Insolvency Practitioner to represent you. Without one, you cannot apply for a Trust-Deed.

The job of the Insolvency Practitioner is to go through your household budget and see how much you can realistically afford to pay your creditors once all of your outgoings for the month have been paid.

Once you agree on a figure, the Insolvency Practitioner will apply to your creditors for the Trust-Deed. Once it has been confirmed, you will then pay your Insolvency Practitioner one payment a month. They will take a monthly fee from your payment and then distribute the rest to your various creditors on your behalf.

Trust Deeds Advantages

Let’s go through the various advantages first: 

  1. Monthly payments that don’t cripple you. Under a Trust-Deed scheme your payments will be vastly reduced and much more manageable.
  2. All interest, fees and charges will be frozen for the duration of the Trust-Deed. Anything outstanding at the end of the deed will be written off.
  3. No more nasty phone calls and letters. Your creditors are not allowed to contact you while the deed is in place.
  4. Debt Free in 48 months. The average duration is four years, meaning you could be debt free in this short amount of time.

Trust Deeds Disadvantages 

Now, for the disadvantages:

  1. Your credit rating. Although the duration of the deed is 4 years, it can affect your credit file for up to 6 years. This could have a major impact on your ability to attain further credit.
  2. If you are a homeowner you may have to release the equity in it to pay for your debts.
  3. If you rent your home then the deed gives your landlord the right to ask you to leave if they so wish.
  4. In addition to this, your employer can also terminate your employment if they see it as an issue.
  5. Bankruptcy. If you fail to stick to the agreement set out in the Trust-Deed you run the risk of sequestration.

How Does a Trust Deed Work?

How does it work? It works by offering your creditors a reduced payment compared to what you would normally pay them, and they accept that they will make a considerable loss on what they borrowed you.

Why would they do this? The vast majority of creditors would rather get some of their investment back than nothing at all. If you went down the route of applying for sequestration then there is a good chance they would get no return at all. This is why they are amiable with Trust Deeds.
