Introducing Debt Management Plans
A Debt management program can help reduce your debts into one affordable monthly repayment. Once an affordable payment has been worked out for yourself, your creditors are contacted on your behalf and are asked to accept an often reduced payment. A request for interest and charges to be frozen will be made to your creditors. Your payments will be distributed to your creditors on a pro-rate basis. All you have to worry about then is making one monthly payment. This is a very popular plan due to it being informal. There are no contracts involved so you are not obliged to stay on the plan for any fixed term. You can also change your payments depending on your circumstances.
Sounds Great but wait a minute .... Debt Management can have a negative effect on your credit rating. Also creditors are not obliged to agree to a Debt Management Plan nor freeze interest and charges. If creditors fail to freeze your interest and charges then the total sum payable to your creditors is likely to increase.
You are also likely to find that reducing your payments can often result in the repayment period being extended. An advisor shall give you an estimation on how long it should take you to complete the debt management plan provided you maintain your monthly payments to the plan. Failure to keep up your payments may result in your creditors breaking off any agreement setup with the plan. If you do find you are beginning to struggle with your monthly payments whilst on a debt management plan then we highly advise you contact you debt management company immediately as they might be able to assist you or inform your creditors that you are currently struggling..
