How does the Sequestration process start?

You can either sequestrate yourself, or alternatively a creditor owed more than £3,000 can start the procedure.

  • To enter sequestration yourself you need an approved money advisor to agree that you are in fact insolvent, and that other procedures are not more suited to your circumstances. Once this has been established, they will issue a Certificate of Sequestration which is valid for 30 days. This is sent to the Accountant in Bankruptcy, along with the application for sequestration and the fee of £200.

  • For a creditor to start the sequestration process, they have to be owed more than £3,000. They may already have sent you a Statutory Demand, and will lodge a petition for your sequestration with the court. If no single creditor is owed £3,000 they may get together to organise a joint petition.
