The Personal Insolvency (Amendment) Act 2015 was signed into law on 28 July 2015.

The new Act follows the Government’s announcement on 13 May 2015 of a series of measures intended to further assist those in mortgage arrears. This briefing summarises the new Act and discusses its potential implications.
