Advice Debt Frequently Asked Questions

Commonly asked questions from our clients, answered.

Will you contact my employer?
Absolutely not, we will never contact your employer to discuss your personal affairs or your family or friends for that matter.
Will my property be at risk?
Your assets, including a property are usually protected within an IVA. However, your property can be treated in a number of ways, for example, you may be asked to release equity from your property in year 5 of your IVA, but if you’re not able to do this your IVA might be extended for a further 12 months. Call us for advice about how your property will be treated in an IVA.
Will I lose my car on finance with your help?
We understand you need the car to get to work or pick the children up from school, keeping the car is a priority for us. In most cases clients are still able to keep the car if you maintain the contractual payments on the agreement.
What if I don’t know who I owe money to?
Don’t worry if you don’t know, with your consent, we can carry out a soft credit search for you that will provide us all off your creditor information even with your reference/account numbers to. A soft search is only visible to you and not the companies looking at your credit file.
What information do I need for debt help?
We will need some personal details from you, we will then complete an income and expenditure and discuss the creditors you owe money to so we can gain a full understanding of your situation.
Will this affect my credit score?
Your credit score will be affected for 6 years from the date of your IVA being approved. Any debt solution will have a negative impact on your credit rating. Things such as defaults, missed payments or CCJs are recorded on your credit profile for 6 years too.

Advice Debt Top Tips

Do I really need to buy this?
Avoiding debt can be a challenge in our modern world, where it's easy to get overwhelmed by all the temptations of spending. To stay on track with your finances, take some extra time before big purchases and ask yourself if you truly need that item.
Make budgeting a good habit
Mapping out and keeping track of your spending is essential for financial stability and success. Developing a budget can help you save money, recognize potential overspending habits before they start, as well as protect against unexpected expenses. Mastering the practice of creating an effective budget plan will go long way in helping to improve your overall credit rating.
Knowing your credit score
An excellent credit score is essential for any individual looking to access financial assistance. Without this metric, lenders may deny borrowers mortgages, car loans and other financing options; even something as simple as a phone contract could come at an immense price with the wrong rating. Therefore, it's important that you understand how your credit score can impact your life in various ways - from getting approved for major purchases to making sure you are paying reasonable costs on everyday transactions.
Borrow or save?
Deciding whether to save or borrow can be a difficult choice that carries lasting consequences. Saving may mean having less cash on hand in the present, but potentially avoids financial trouble down the road. Conversely, borrowing provides quick access to funds now; however if payments are not made in full and on time it could create prolonged problems with debt repayment. Ultimately, saving is often considered the safer option for making major purchases.
Have I checked the interest rates?
Before taking the plunge and borrowing money, take a look at that all-important APR. Keep in mind interest rates can vary dramatically - so make sure you research what sort of additional cost is involved with taking out your loan to ensure it fits within your budget!
Switching your credit card
Take advantage of low-interest credit cards to save yourself some money! Doing the research, you may even find a card with 0% APR - however this won't last forever. Make sure that if you switch providers and get one at zero percent interest, make it your priority to pay off debt during that period or else once it ends, interest rates will be added in full force.
Saving for a rainy day
Don't let debt be a factor in your future plans. A smart money move is to start putting away just a little bit each week - every penny counts! For example, squirreling £5 per week adds up over time; by the end of one year you'll have saved an impressive total of £260 (and if placed into savings that could grow even more!).
Don’t bury your head in the sand
Don't let your dilemma fester. If you find yourself in trouble, seek out professional advice to get back on the road to financial freedom. Advice debt services are well-equipped with experts who specialise in helping people resolve issues quickly and discreetly – so don’t hesitate to reach out for guidance!
