Sequestration

This is when you make a formal declaration that you have become financially insolvent, in this case the court will issue an order declaring you to be legally incapacitated to pay off your debts. This occurs when all your liabilities exceeds your assets. With sequestration your assets will be sold to the highest bidder.

Upon sequestrating, you will not be allowed to apply for any type of loan for a period of up to ten years. Additionally all credit bureaus will be notified so that they have your name fagged and or enlisted for a period of up to ten years. However, the process allows you to apply for rehabilitation five years from the date which the sequestration order was granted.

Sequestration cases can be brought before a magistrate or a judge whilst permission for rehabilitation will be given by a trustee.
