From Lanark, you can reach our Glasgow office in around 40 minutes by car along the M74. Alternatively, you can make the 30-mile journey by train to join us in Glasgow to open up discussions about how best to deal with your personal debt problems. Regardless of why you are struggling with debt, we will be able to talk you through your options and help find the right solution for you.
There are financial advisory services offered by the South Lanarkshire Council (0303 123 1008) but for qualified and expert advice for large scale debts, Scotland Debt Solutions are experts specifically in providing debt help. We have supported hundreds of Scots in understanding and entering Trust Deeds, Debt Arrangement Schemes and Sequestration. Each of these processes are quite distinct and it’s vital for anyone entering them to be aware of the key differences – something we can talk you through in a clear and confidential manner.
We understand that entering any form of debt management solution is a tough process to go through but, very often, the alternatives are unfavourable. Hoping your debts will simply go away is not a sensible approach to take and it is only when individuals themselves take action and reach out for help that they can start to make progress towards becoming debt free.
From our Glasgow offices, we provide advice, debt help and support to anyone living in Lanark or anywhere in South Lanarkshire. If you can’t make it in to Glasgow then we’ll be happy to visit you wherever you are to discuss the issues you have at hand. How you got into the position you’re in is not important, what matters most is what you do next and how you will take action to tackle your debts head on.
Call us on 0800 063 9250 to arrange a free and confidential consultation.

A trust deed is a common debt repayment programme based around a voluntary arrangement made between you, your creditors and a qualified independent trustee who takes control of your debt repayments for a typical period of four years.

If you have built up debt from gambling, you may be able to write off part or all of the debt via a formal Scottish insolvency route. Not all insolvency solutions allow debts to be written off, but you may be eligible for a trust deed if you meet certain criteria, with sequestration also being a possibility […]
Four years ago I had bailiffs at my door and my landlord wanted me out on the streets. I had my head in the sand and just buried myself away from bad news, meaning I ignored creditors and my debts kept escalating with late fees, surcharges and penalties. A friend told me about Scotland Debt Solutions and within two weeks I was getting my life back on track.
I am now debt-free and thanks to an upturn in my credit score I now have my own home - something I couldn't have envisaged four years ago.
I had pre-conceptions about going bankrupt and thought it would be the worst possible thing that could happen, but entering into a bankruptcy (sequestration) procedure with Scotland Debt Solutions has proved to be a massive turning point for me. I paid off some of my debts through a structured repayment plan and the rest were written off.
Within 12 months I was discharged from sequestration and able to start moving on with my life and building my credit score again.
