Administration order. What is it?
An administration order is a repayment plan arranged by the County Court.
Administration orders are only available in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. If you live in Scotland there are other options available to help you deal with your debts.
To apply for an administration order you need to have:
- less than £5,000 debt in total, and
- received at least one court judgment.
An administration order is legally binding on your creditors and gives you protection from them. The creditors included in the order can’t contact you for payment or add any more interest or charges to your debts once the administration order has been approved.
