Rule 10: Miscellaneous


The SRA may make an interim payment to a beneficiary before the full distribution on a statutory trust account takes place. This will be done only where the SRA is satisfied that the circumstances are such that the payment can be made without prejudicing other claims on the statutory trust account.


The SRA may issue guidance notes to claimants to assist in the making of a claim and to explain the steps and processes which the SRA takes in dealing with a statutory trust account.
