Your Assets in a Trust Deed Peebles
When compared with some other debt solutions, a Trust Deed can be a fantastic way of protecting your most vital assets while sorting out your debt.
Your Home – If you don’t actively want to, it is extremely extraordinary that your property will need to be sold. Our staff always hold your assets as a priority, ensuring you are able to stay in your property.
Nonetheless, in some circumstances you might be required to realise some equity (for example, the value of a property that has a mortgage minus any charges towards it) in order to get the blessing of creditors. Any equity available to you will have been determined when you make contact with us. It may need to be converted into cash, or ‘realised’, but there are various techniques of doing this without you losing your home. These methods will be explained simply but in detail by our experienced team.
Your Car – In cases where your motor vehicle is important to your day-to-day requirements, it is unlikely that you are going to lose it.

This will release additional revenue to go to your creditors, so we can draft a more attractive proposition.
