Beware of Unregulated Loans

Aug 30, 2008
People get into debt for many various reasons and this can lead to stress and worries about just how they are going to pay back their creditors and the creditor's sometimes very high interest rates. However, there is a solution and a positive way to pay your debts without the stress by having a Debt Management Plan.

A Debt Management Plan is not a loan, it is simply a way to bring all of your debts into one monthly payment which is managed by a third party such as a Debt Management Company.

Using a reputable Debt Management Company is a far better option than becoming trapped into unregulated loans which are taken out over many years and which have extremely high exit charges and penalties written in the small print of their contracts. This is particularly important if someone is considering having a personal loan in excess of 25,000 as these are not covered under the UK's Consumer Credit Act. A far more sensible approach is to have a Debt Management Plan, although it will not be legally binding they do afford a far safer option if the debtor shops round to find a dependable and reputable debt management company who will act in the debtor's best interest rather than their own.

Some debt management companies do not charge a fee to the debtor, they are paid by commission from the creditors who assume that the debt management company will recover some of their debts for them, however there is usually a fee involved. This is another good reason for the debtor to check out different debt management companies to find out exactly what fees and charges will be incurred as they can vary widely. It cannot be stressed highly enough that in order to reduce debts payments they have to be handled effectively and there is no point in adding another debt by way of extortionately high debt management company fees.

A professional debt management company will contact your creditors and advise them that you are in a Debt Management Plan and that you have all good intentions to make regular monthly payments in order to reduce your debts. This has the added advantage of stopping the creditors from pursuing you and harassing you for money as they will be able to see that you have taken positive and constructive steps to solve your debt problems.

A Debt Management Plan is for unsecured loans, which means that it is not possible to include such things which have underlying security attached to them as with car loan or a mortgage on a house within the Debt Management Plan. Therefore if you fall behind and default on the payments for your car or home they could be repossessed and taken away from you. If you are finding you are unable to pay these creditors then speak to the Debt Management Company and they will be able to advise you on the best course of action to take. They may well recommend an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA) to prevent you from facing bankruptcy.
