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.
