I am currently struggling to make ends meet lately. I was ok and then things just started piling up after my mum lost her job. I have a car that I do not want to lose and have only a year left to finish paying and accounts and credit cards I need to settle. I’m scared to go under debt review but need help with settling and closing off my accounts. I have good credit history and never missed a payment even if I had to struggle to pay it I always managed to pay. But I need help now.
Thank you for getting in touch.
We help South Africans struggling with their debt through a program called debt review (also known as debt counselling). Debt review might be an option for you.
How debt review works:
Debt review is the program that reworks your debt payments into an affordable, consolidated repayment plan. Your repayment plan is formulated in such a way that it enables you to pay for essential living costs, giving you immediate breathing space. Your repayment plan is agreed upon by your creditors (we negotiate with them on your behalf), regulated by the National Credit Act and authorised through a court order. This means that the debt review program legally protects you, and your assets, against creditors who want to take legal action against you.
Once your debt review program is successfully completed you will receive a clearance certificate. This is sent to your creditors and the credit bureaus – they are then required by law to remove all the info on your credit report about your debt and the debt review program. Meaning your financial slate is wiped clean, your debt worries are in the past, and you can start living your new beginning.
If you would like more information regarding debt review, or request a free debt evaluation (no obligation required), you are welcome to fill out our contact form found here.
