Bankruptcy and Debt Advice (Scotland) Act 2014

Functions of sheriff and Accountant in Bankruptcy in sequestration

Section 35 – Power to cure defects in procedure

85.This section modifies section 63 of the 1985 Act, in order to allow applications to AiB to cure certain, but not all, defects which could previously be remedied under section 63 of the 1985 Act by the sheriff. Section 63A(4) specifies that the process involves notifying any interested parties and giving them the opportunity to make representations. The sheriff’s power is restricted accordingly, save in relation to documents lodged with or issued by, or time limits in relation to proceedings before the sheriff. An order of AiB is subject to review and under section 63B(4) thereafter to appeal to the sheriff, which will be final. The defects which can be remedied are as follows:-

  • any clerical or incidental error in a document required by or under the Act;

  • to waive a failure to comply with a time limit specified in or made under the 1985 Act, where there is no specific provision in or made under the Act about how failure to adhere to the timescale should be dealt with.
