Trapped under Administration
A Fin24 reader feels that he is trapped under administration and asks the following advice:
I have been under administration since 2008 until now. I owed my creditors an amount of R29 485 plus about R2 000 for the fees. Every month I paid R1 000 via stop order at work and in January 2012 the deductions stopped. I phoned the attorney handling my file or case and explained about the stop order had stopped. She said I must not panic, because they are still busy dealing with my creditors. I have been waiting since then. Last month I visited them to find out how far they are with my creditors. They told me I owe the creditors an estimated outstanding balance of R4 279.45, and this is not a final balance. They are still busy with my creditors again. So, last week I started paying this amount via debit order. Please give me advice on how to get out of this situation. It has now been a long time to be under administration.
