Repossessions advice group


The purpose of the Repossession Advice Group (RAG) is to develop and implement, on behalf of Scottish Ministers, the advice related non-legislative recommendations made by the working groups of the Government’s Debt Action Forum – the Repossessions Working Group and the Access to Advice Sub-Group.
