Minimal Assets Process - MAP

Big or small, every debt problem can be solved

Minimal Assets Process MAP

Minimal Assets Process, do you qualify for a MAP

This section covers the Minimal Assets Process, what debts can be included in a MAP and the criteria to qualify for a mininal assets process bankruptcy

The Minimal Asset Process (MAP) debt solution can give you a fresh start by writing off debts that you can’t repay within a reasonable time. It's aimed at people with a low income and not many assets, and is cheaper and more straightforward than sequestration bankruptcy.

This solution is only available to people living in Scotland. If you live in England, Wales or Northern Ireland you may be able to apply for a debt relief order, which is a similar solution, but it's important to note that it has different benefits, risks and fees associated with it.

As long as the specified criteria are met, you can apply for your own bankruptcy via the Minimal Asset Process and potentially be free of unsecured debts within six months.

  • Debts of at least £1,500, but not exceeding £17,000

  • You must have no disposable income available to repay debts, or you must have been in receipt of certain social security benefits for a minimum period of six months
  • Sequestration must not have been awarded during the previous five years

Fantastic,they are life savers.

I Contacted them at 5 pm on a Thursday night,they arranged a meeting Friday morning with all the relevant bodies their because my case was the following Monday .I can't sing their praises high enough they contacted the courts same afternoon. Fantastic response, I avoided bankruptcy on the Monday and was given time to arrange an Iva. I risked losing my home,my mother and fathers home all hope seemed lost until I made that fateful phone call. I can now sleep at night.
