Mortgages with Protected Trust Deeds

Mortgages have become such an important thing on our minds with the pressures of high rents, stability for our families and peer pressure to start building an asset and a nest

When you enter a Protected Trust Deed in Scotland the solution will enter an entry on your credit file for up to six years under the public notice and insolvencies section of your credit file. This allows lenders to see you are in the solution or have been in the solution but for only up to six years after you started the solution, after six years this will not be visible on your credit file. So in those six years, it will be visible to creditors, therefore it will be hard to obtain a new mortgage though not impossible after your Protected Trust Deed finises at the four-year point.

Getting a mortgage after the Protected Trust Deed will depend on various factors but ensuring you do not take on more unmanageable debt during and after the plan will certainly help. One of the main stipulations on the Protected Trust Deed is that you do not save money during the plan as it is the Insolvency practitioner’s job to make sure anything extra you have is entered into the plan to go towards your creditors.

If you already have a mortgage and are wondering about a mortgage renewal or remortgage, it is unlikely you would be able to remortgage with a different provider during the plan and would go onto the variable rate mortgage terms after the mortgage terms ends, however, you may be able to renew your mortgage with the same provider.
