Bankruptcy and Diligence etc. (Scotland) Act 2007

Section 138 – Effect of certain refusals of application for satisfaction order

401.This section provides that the refusal of an application for a satisfaction order on the ground mentioned in section 136(7)(c) (that is, the implementation of the satisfaction order sought would not result in the debt being paid off or reduced, either because the value of the property attached would not be realised at all or the value realised would be too small) does not lift the residual attachment. In other words the creditor still has the protection of the security over the attached property – which could give that creditor priority if the debtor is sequestrated. In addition, the creditor can make another application for a satisfaction order at a later date, perhaps with a different proposal as to how the value of the attached property might be realised.
