How long does it take to set up a Trust Deed?

It usually takes between 5-8 weeks for a Trust Deed proposal to be drafted by the Insolvency Practitioner; this may vary according to the complexity of the case. The proposal is then passed to the creditors for approval, who may then take up to two weeks to approve.
