The following Property guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Part VI of the County Courts Act 1984 (CCA 1984) introduces a new form of administration procedure for debtors who do not have any business debts and whose income exceeds the amount required to meet their reasonable needs.
A debtor may apply for a county court administration order (CCAO) if he:
is not already subject to an administration order, bankruptcy order or voluntary arrangement
has at least two qualifying debts (as defined in CCA 1984, s 112AB)
none of his debts are business debts
the total of all his debts does not exceed the county court limit (currently £5,000)
he is unable to pay one or more of his qualifying debts (inability to pay is defined, on a cash-flow basis only, by CCA 1984, s 112AC), and
he has sufficient income not only to meet his reasonable needs, but also to fund repayments of small debts over a period of time
