Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 1985: Schedule 5, Paragraph 5(3)

Notice by Trustee Under a Trust Deed for the Benefit of Creditors

Trust Deed for Creditors by

Michael Alexander Winton

A trust deed has been granted by Michael Alexander Winton, 22C Froghall Avenue, Aberdeen, AB24 3JT on 24th March 2004 conveying (to the extent specified in Section 5(4A) of the Bankruptcy (Scotland) Act 1985) his estate to me, Matthew P Henderson, Grant Thornton, Chartered Accountants, 1/4 Atholl Crescent, Edinburgh EH3 8LQ, as Trustee for the benefit of his creditors generally.

If a creditor wishes to object to the trust deed for the purposes of preventing it becoming a protected trust deed (see notes below on the objections required for that purpose) notification of such objection must be delivered in writing to the Trustee within 5 weeks of the date of publication of this Notice in The Edinburgh Gazette.

Notes: The trust deed will become a protected trust deed unless within the period of 5 weeks of the date of publication of this Notice in The Edinburgh Gazette a majority in number or not less than one third in value of the creditors notify the Trustee in writing that they object to the trust deed and do not wish to accede to it.

The effect of this is that paragraphs 6 and 7 of Schedule 5 to the Act will apply to the trust deed. Briefly, this has the effect of restricting the rights of non-acceding creditors to do diligence (ie to enforce court decrees for unpaid debts) against the debtor and confers certain protection upon the trust deed from being superseded by the sequestration of the debtor’s estate.
