Abolition of Poindings and Warrant Sales Act 2001 (repealed)

This Act of Scottish Parliament abolishes the process by which payment of a debt can be enforced by poinding or warrant sale. The Act ensures that any enactment or rule of law allowing such enforcement shall cease to have effect. Poinding (pronounced ‘pinding’) is a form of diligence enabling the attachment of a debtor’s moveable property by the creditor. A Warrant Sale is a form of diligence by which a debtor’s moveable property is sold to repay the debt. The warrant sale can only commence after poinding procedure has been carried out by an officer of court.

Debt Arrangement and Attachment (Scotland) Act 2002

This Act of Scottish Parliament is in five parts. Part 1 covers the Debt Arrangement Scheme, a national debt arrangement scheme to enable multiple debts to be assessed with the support of money advisers and paid in accordance with a debt payment programme over a period of time.

Part 2 introduces a new method of enforcement, or diligence, for the attachment of corporeal moveable property. Corporeal moveable property is property which is tangible (corporeal), is not fixed like land or buildings and can be handled and moved (moveable).
