Which Debts Are Eligible For Debt Negotiation?

Jan 17, 2008
Debt negotiation, also called debt arbitration is an aggressive approach to paying off your bills by reducing the amount of the balance that is owed on your unsecured debts. Also this is perhaps one of the best alternatives that you have to filing for bankruptcy. Debt settlement is becoming a more accepted method of getting out of debt and there are more agencies available to help people negotiate with their creditors.

This is not something that should be undertaken lightly. Once you enter into a debt settlement program it is something that you should follow as it is agreed upon. If you are not in position to do this, you may want to consider bankruptcy. But if you are serious and have the resources, this is a method that will get you out of debt relatively quickly and can save you a lot of money.

There are many types of accounts that can be settled through negotiation. Here are some of the accounts that are eligible:

*Credit Cards

*Medical Bills

*Department Store Credit Cards

*Gas Credit Cards

*Unsecured Personal Loans

*Past Due Rent

*Auto Repossessions

*Utility Bills

There are some debts that you will not be able to enter into a program. These are:

*Mortgages

*Car Payments

*Student Loans

*Secured Loans

*Income Tax Payments

Debt negotiation organizations can negotiate with your creditors to get your eligible balances reduced by a certain percentage that normally ranges from 30-50%, but can be as much as 85%. You will make monthly payments to the debt settlement agency and once the agreed upon amount is paid to the agency, they will in turn pay your creditors one-by-one.

Normally, the debt settlement company will have all the future contact with your creditors. Your creditors will deal with credit counselor as they negotiate your debts to come to a payment arrangement that is acceptable to both you and your creditors.

Most companies want their clients to have at least $10,000 in debt and each account must be at least $1,000. If your debt is less than this amount, there are other methods of paying off your accounts that would work better for you.

Entering into a program is not an easy decision, but debt negotiation can get you out of debt quickly and can save you a lot of money. Once you have enrolled in a program to payoff your bills, you will soon be able to concentrate your efforts on rebuilding your credit and getting your finances back on track.
