Breathing Space Regulations apply to creditors whose debtors are eligible for an arrangement allowing them additional time to repay their debt. During this period, creditors need to suspend all actions related to this debt.
These regulations provide debtors with legal protection from creditors, allows for greater control over their financial situation and help to avoid unmanageable debt.
Our Breathing Space Regulations Course outlines the basis of these regulations, explains how to identify debtors who qualify for breathing space, and the required actions.
