Frequently Asked Questions
1. How long before I receive relief from my debt?
You will receive immediate relief from Creditors. During the first 60 working days of the application, creditors may not take any action against you. In this period of time – your Debt Counsellor will prepare the final repayment plan to all Credit Providers.
2. When under Debt Review, may my Creditors still contact me?
No. As soon as you are under Debt Review, your Debt Counsellor will inform all creditors that you are in the process. From that point – your Creditors must, by law, work with your appointed Debt Counsellor. If and when they do contact you, refer them back to your Debt Counsellor.
3. Can I still rent a property whilst under Debt Review?
It is not a credit agreement and therefore you will be able to rent whilst under Debt Review. In most cases, you may need a letter from your Debt Counsellor to confirm that the amount is made available from your surplus.
4. Can I apply for Debt Review when unemployed?
No. You will need to earn a monthly income that a Debt Counsellor can use to distribute between all of your Creditors.
5. What changes should I make to my finances during and after Debt Review?
You should look at the Debt Review process as a way of turning your life around. It is a proactive step in dealing with serious indebtedness before any legal process takes place.
For this reason, you should re-look at your budget, not only whilst under Debt Review, but also into the future when all debt is paid off.
Once your debt is paid off, you should be careful not to get back into debt and start the cycle again.
Use the surplus you now have (the money you were previously using to pay off your debt) to save. It is far better to have savings then debt.
