Consumer Credit Counselling

If you're struggling with bad credit then you should learn more about consumer credit counselling as a possible option. 

How Credit Counselling Can Save You From Bankruptcy

If you find yourself facing more debt than you can manage on your own, you might want to consider getting the assistance of a credit counselling agency.

Because these agencies handle some of your most sensitive personal information, you'll want to be sure that you're dealing with an efficient and reputable organization before you get started with them. /p>

After locating several credit counselling agencies through the Yellow Pages or via the Internet, you can assess their reputation by checking with your local Better Business Bureau. Some credit counselling agencies are strictly non-profit and offer their services for free to those they deem in need of assistance.

Others charge certain fees, ranging from an up-front deposit to a final bill that is based on the time that was spent consolidating your debts.

You'll want to find out right away if you will eventually be charged for the services that they provide because if you are in debt, the last thing you need at this point is another bill. Once you've determined if you'll be able to work with the agency, you can start repairing your credit rating by letting the agency consolidate your debt.

Credit counselling agencies can help you draft a debt repayment plan, outlining what needs to be done in order to clear all of your outstanding balances. They calculate your income, along with any unforeseen financial setbacks (such as medical expenses) are also taken into account when making up this plan.

Whatever is left of your debts are then converted into one lump sum, which you can then start to repay in monthly instalments.

In some cases, an agency might buy the debt from your creditors, meaning you make your monthly payments directly to the agency.

In other cases, the agency might intervene on your behalf, and convince your creditors to extend grace periods, temporarily suspend collection, or accept a reduced lump sum.

Credit counsellors can help you get out of debt, but they cannot totally erase any past damage to your credit report.

Although past bad credit can remain on your report for several years, working with a credit counselling agency can still help you get approved for credit at some point in the future as it shows that you put in a lot of effort.

Through a credit counselling agency, you will be able to make consistent payments against your outstanding balance, which does reflect positively on your credit report, and can be influential if you apply for credit in the future.
