What you need to know about Debt Settlements
If you have the finances available to clear your debts in one payment, we could help you save money on the total amount repaid and write off a proportion of your debts.
You simply tell us about your debts and the total amount you have outstanding and we will negotiate directly with your lenders to secure a reduced repayment for you. In our experience, lenders are keen to settle debts – but it’s our job to get you the best deal.
A Debt Settlement is suitable for anyone with the finances available to clear their debts in one payment.
You could repay your debts with a Debt Settlement if you have:
- Received inheritance
- Taken out a secured or unsecured loan
- Received a work bonus
- Sold your home
- Cashed in a pension or life insurance policy
- Received an injury claim
- Received a windfall
- Get financial help from your family
If you have missed or made late payments on your debts, then your credit rating may already be affected. If you have a Default Notice, a CCJ or any other type of court action, then these will remain on your credit file for 6 years.
The Debt Settlement service depends on your financial circumstances and is subject to lenders agreeing to the Settlement.
If your lenders agree to the repayment at a reduced offer, they are agreeing to write off a proportion of your debts.
Fees do apply for the debt settlement service, but these fees will be provided to you in advance. Click here for more information on fees.
