What are the advantages of a Trust Deed?


The advantages of a Protected Trust Deed are as follows:

  • Your Trustee will deal with all creditor correspondence and queries.
  • All interest and charges on the debts are frozen on the date the Trust Deed is signed.
  • Once the Trust Deed has been given protected status, no further action can be taken against you by your creditors.
  • Will enable you to make a single payment each month during the term of the deed.
  • After paying the Trust Deed for the defined term, usually 48 months, any remaining debt is written off.
