What could Baines & Ernst do for me?
Freeze interest and chargesWe’ll ask your lenders to freeze interest and charges on your debts, so you pay off the debt itself – not the interest. Although we cannot always guarantee this, we’re pleased to say that in 93% of the debts we manage we do freeze interest and charges. However, on an occasion where a lender doesn’t agree then the plan length and balance may increase.
Reduce your monthly repaymentsWe’ll complete a financial review to work out how much you could afford to pay towards your debts after taking into account all of your bills and living expenses. We’ll then speak directly to your lenders and secure a lower, more affordable repayment plan for you.
Reduce direct contact from lendersDirect contact from lenders is something we work hard to reduce. While we can’t guarantee this will stop completely, lenders will often choose to contact us instead of you once they know we are dealing with your debts.
Any letters or phone calls you receive can be directed to us and we’ll handle their enquiries, so you don’t have to.
Help you clear unsecured debtsWe’ll provide a solution to help you get out of debt as fast as you can realistically afford. Providing you make all of the monthly payments as agreed you’ll be clear of the debts included on completion.
Provide ongoing help and supportFrom your initial enquiry right through to when you clear your debts, we’re with you every step of the way.
What to look out for when clearing payday loan debts
When it comes to using other means of reducing payday loan debt there are a few things you need to know:
Payday loan lenders may offer a rollover which usually lasts for the same period of time you originally took the loan out for. But be careful if you take this approach as the lender will charge you additional interest (on top of what you already owe) during the rollover period, potentially causing your payday loan debt to spiral out of control.
Most payday lenders receive payment by a Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) allowing the lender to re-coup payment directly from your account when the loan is due to be repaid. Payday lenders are unlikely to cancel the CPA if you still owe them money however, you could speak to your bank and request they cancel the CPA. Once this is done, contact your payday lender and explain what has happened so that you can arrange a repayment plan that suits both parties. Read more on how to cancel the CPA here.
