What are the advantages of a debt solution?
There are various types of debt solution available, and each will have their own particular advantages. In general, you should be able to look forward to far less contact from creditors, to having one regular monthly payment, to being able to budget more accurately and, at the end to be able to write off at least some of your debts.
Here at Personal Debt Support, we’re committed to bringing you the best support, the most reliable guidance and the most helpful advice. Ease your stress levels by getting in touch with our friendly team today. We’re looking forward to hearing from you soon on 0141 380 0578.
The easy answer to this is no, because there is no credit blacklist as such. Over the years, this urban myth has become more and more talked about but in fact the blacklist doesn’t exist. Lenders will take various facts into consideration before deciding whether or not to offer credit to you. It doesn’t necessarily follow that if one provider turns you down then others will do the same.
Many people can. Making sure you’re on the electoral register can help, for example. If you make a lot of applications for credit in a short space of time it can reduce your rating, so be careful. If you’re able to, pay at least the minimum amounts on credit card balances each month, and be sure to check your rating on a regular basis.
If you’ve been declared bankrupt, or been the subject of a sequestration in Scotland, there are some bank accounts which won’t be available to you. In many cases, you will have to switch banks or, at the very least, switch from one type of account to another. Ask the team at Personal Debt Support for more information.
In most cases, your creditors will stop contacting you for the duration of a scheme such as an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA). Bear in mind that it can still happen, however, although calls and letters are likely to be far less frequent. As a general rule, creditors will usually maintain communication with your appointed trustees or advisors instead.
Debt solution programmes include:
• Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA)
• Debt Relief Order (DRO)
• Trust Deed
• Debt Management Plan (DMP)
• Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS)
If you sign up to any debt solution programme, your name will almost certainly be added to the Insolvency Register for a period of time. This is a list that’s made available to individuals and organisations, who will then be able to check your credit suitability. Those who might use it include landlords, credit providers, employers and credit reference agencies.
