Bankruptcy and Diligence etc. (Scotland) Act 2007

New section 56F – Interim bankruptcy restrictions order

14.Subsections (1) to (3) of section 56F provide for the application for and the making of interim BROs.

15.Interim BROs can be made by the sheriff at any time between the making of an application for a full BRO and the decision on the application for the full BRO. The sheriff would have to be satisfied that, based on the case presented by the AiB, the full BRO application is likely to be successful and that making an interim order is in the public interest.

16.Subsections (4) to (6) provide for the effect and duration of an interim order. An interim order has effect as if it was a full BRO and restrictions will apply on the making of the interim BRO. Where an interim order is followed by a full BRO, the duration of the full order set out under section 56E starts from the date the interim order was made.
