Can Baines & Ernst freeze interest and charges?

Freezing interest and charges on 100% of your debts depend on the solution you enter into. For example, with an IVA or Protected Trust Deed, interest and charges are legally frozen.

Whereas lenders involved in a Debt Management Plan are not legally obliged to freeze interest and charges, but we will do all we can to get these charges stopped.

In 93% of debts managed through a Debt Management Plan we are successful in freezing interest and charges.

If these charges are not frozen then the total amount owed and the time it takes to repay your debts could increase.

Can Baines & Ernst lower debt repayments?

We have excellent relationships with over 3,500 lenders – putting us in a great position to negotiate a lower repayment plan with lenders on your behalf.

We will carry out a financial review to learn more about your debts, income and essential outgoings to find out which solution would suit you best.

From here we will be able to tell you how much we could help you reduce your debt repayments by and get an action plan in place if you wish to move forward with a debt solution.

Can Baines & Ernst reduce contact from lenders?

Yes, once lenders know that we are managing your debts on your behalf, they will often choose to contact us instead of you – helping to greatly reduce the amount of direct contact you have with your lenders.

There are some solutions that can help you to stop contact altogether – simply contact us for more details.

Do you provide no-obligation debt advice?

At Baines & Ernst our aim is to help you find a way to successfully manage your debts. Our friendly team of experts are here to listen to you and help you find the right solution, so we provide no-obligation financial reviews to all new customers.

Do Baines & Ernst provide loans?

No, we neither lend you money nor pay off your debts, we simply provide customers with easy-to-manage repayment plans that make getting out of debt as simple and as stress-free as possible.

Will my credit rating be affected if I get debt help?

If you have already struggled to make repayments on time or have missed them altogether, your credit rating may already be affected.

If you enter into a debt solution, it is worth noting that your credit rating will be affected in the medium term because you will not be repaying your debts at the rate you originally agreed with your lenders.

Lenders are also legally required to issue a Default Notice if you miss more than the equivalent of 3 contractual repayments. Default Notices will remain on your credit record for six years from the date the notice was issued.
