The status of being sequestrated has a myriad of negative consequences. For instance, a sequestrated person may not hold certain positions, such as directorship, and the insolvent person is also divested of his or her property. The question thus arises, how and when can a person be rehabilitated? A sequestrated person will be automatically rehabilitated after 10 years from date of the provisional sequestration order, in terms of section 127A of the Insolvency Act. A sequestrated person can also, depending on the circumstances, apply to the High Court for a rehabilitation order.
