Sequestration-Img

Sequestration is a debt solution that is available in Scotland and is the Scottish term for Bankruptcy.

 This is a formal arrangement and is a form of insolvency designed to deal with debts that you are unable to repay with within a reasonable period of time. If you have more assets than debts then this may not be an option for you.
