A Trust Deed is a formal agreement between you and your creditors to pay back what you can afford towards your debts.
Once Protected it is an extremely powerful legal tool to help you back on the road to financial stability. A Trust Deed is designed for people who have taken out too much debt and are struggling to meet their monthly repayments.
The minimum repayment period for a Trust Deed is 48 months* (4 years) unless an alternative arrangement is agreed. You will be required to pay a set amount per month for the 48 month (or longer) period. At the end of term, provided that you have met your obligations and the Trust Deed is not extended, you will be discharged from any obligations and outstanding unsecured debts included in your trust deed.
