Struggling with debts? Help is at hand

By Staff Writer

If you are having problems paying your debts then debt management through a qualified debt counsellor could help you reduce your monthly repayments and take control of your finances.

Debt management could help you if:

 

  • You're struggling to meet your monthly debt repayments
  • You're getting calls from credit providers and lawyers
    demanding money
  • You want to avoid administration and insolvency
  • You want to solve your debt problems
  • You want to pay just one amount each month

If this is you then DebtBusters, a regulated debt counsellor, could help you get back on track by setting up a debt management plan that enables you to pay off your creditors with a single, affordable payment every month.

Here's how DebtBusters can help:

  • Putting you under debt review, which stops your creditors from chasing you whilst your financial situation is assessed
  • Advising you on coping with your debts and creating a payment plan for you
  • Dealing with your credit providers to reach an agreement on paying your debts

To get free advice on managing your debts and to find out if you are eligible for debt review, visit the DebtBusters page, complete the simple Call Me Back form and a consultant will contact you
