What is an Informal Debt Solution?

If you’re having difficulty making your repayments, you may want to try to reach an informal agreement with your creditors. Whilst informal debt solutions are not legally binding, they are likely to have fewer serious consequences than formal debt arrangements. An informal debt arrangement involves entering into an informal payment plan with your creditor(s) to enable you to pay your debts off over time – potentially deferring payments until you get back on your feet or making your payments more management and affordable.

The negotiated new payment plan could include paying your debts in a single, lower lump sum or continuing with a different repayment plan involving one, or a combination of options.

What are your Informal Debt Solution Options?

W

A Debt Moratorium, also known as a payment holiday or payment deferral, to either stop or reduce your payments and interest over a short period of time (usually between 3 to 12 months) to enable you to get back on your feet or to put other arrangements in place.

W

Debt Consolidation – by bringing your existing multiple debts together into one single new loan, subject to a single interest rate, with a single regular (usually monthly) repayment it makes managing your debts significantly easier.

W

Debt Negotiation – this involves discussions with your creditors to informally renegotiate the terms of your loan, this might mean settling the debt for less than the full amount, lower interest rates, reduced fees and/or extending the length of the loan to reduce the size of your minimum payments.

W

Debt Settlement – If you have access to a lump sum, a debt settlement may help. A debt settlement is an informal arrangement with your creditors that offers less than the full amount you owe in order to wipe out the debt completely.

W

A longer-term informal arrangement – a long term informal arrangement can last several years and often involves reducing your minimum repayments, reducing or freezing the interest owed over the period if you need more time to get back on your feet or to put other arrangements in place.

What is a Formal Debt Solution?

Formal debt solutions have been developed and implemented by the Australian Government under the Bankruptcy Act 1966, to provide options for people who find themselves in situations where the debt they carry becomes unmanageable. It is important that you fully understand what you are agreeing to before signing up to them, as whilst they have benefits, there can be serious consequences. Your formal debt solutions options are:

W

Debt Agreement – A formal legally binding (Part IX or Part 9) Debt Agreement helps you deal with unmanageable unsecured debts such as credit cards or personal loans. Your debt will likely be reduced to an agreed amount and the remainder you will be able to pay back through affordable regular periodic or lump sum payments.

W

Personal Insolvency Agreement – A Personal Insolvency Agreement is a formal, legally binding arrangement that is between you and your creditors to satisfy your debts. The arrangement could consist of a contribution of your income over a period of time or an assignment of your assets. It is the last option considered before filing for bankruptcy.

W

Bankruptcy – Bankruptcy is the formal process of being declared unable to pay your debts. When you become bankrupt, you don’t have to pay most of the debts you owe.

What do you need to know before entering into a debt arrangement?

Understanding the terms of any debt arrangement, both formal and informal, is critical before agreeing to anything. Ensure you have enough information to be able to select an option which is most favourable to you, so your financial situation isn’t impacted even further. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If a part of the agreement or contract is unclear to you, make sure to clarify anything first before signing on the dotted line. We recommend you talk to a debt expert about your options.

    CJ was amazing. It's been a long process to fix my credit due to mistakes at a young age. So many other places were happy to take my money with no guarantee they will have success in helping. CJ told me plain and simple what I need to do and what will help. He didn't charge me a cent either. Gave his honest opinion woth a good 30 minute phone call and thoughts on what will genuinely help. I am going to put all this into place and give him a call in 6 months to discuss future moves towards buying a house. We all make mistakes in life and stress I've them. It's people like CJ that make you feel calm and believe it will all be ok with some solid advice. Thanks again CJ

    When I was struggling with my credit, I didn't know who to turn to. I had heard of Fix Bad Credit, but I didn't know if they could really help me. But I decided to give them a try, and they completely blew me away. In just a few weeks, they were able to clear up all the mess that the other company had made. I'm so happy that I went with them - they saved me from a lot of hassle and stress. Thank you, Fix Bad Credit!

    "We were so excited when we found out that we were finally going to be able to buy our own home. We had been renting for years, and it felt like it was time for us to take the next step. But then we hit a snag – our credit score wasn't good enough to get a mortgage.Thankfully, we heard about Fix Bad Credit. These guys are the best in the business when it comes to fixing your credit score. They helped us get organized, and within a few months our score was looking great! We were able to get approved for a mortgage and buy our dream home. Thank you, Fix Bad Credit – you guys are amazing!"

    My credit card debt was killing me. I was considering bankruptcy, or a part 9 debt agreement. A friend recommended I speak with Fix Bad Credit. They discussed all my options. Within 6 months Fix Bad Credit had eliminated my debt and changed my life. Fantastic job. Highly recommend this service to anyone in debt or has issues with their credit report. I no longer have either. Fix Bad Credit are the real deal.

    An opportunity came knocking and I needed to access equity in my property to take advantage of this. A default on my credit report had me thinking I was going to miss out. My broker told me he knew the best in the business and put me in touch with Fix Bad Credit. My broker was right. They exceeded my expectation. Can not recommend them enough. Great work team.

    Myself and my partner engaged another credit repair company to assist with default removals, and cleaning up the credit file.Unfortunately they took our money, and that was all. The ombudsman became involved, but in the end we were left with nothing.The Fix Bad Credit team offered to help. And they certainly did that. Credit score is now above 800 and they are now assisting us with a $60k debt.It’s been life changing. I strongly recommend if you have debt, or credit issues, to reach out to the team at Fix Bad credit. Thanks again Carey absolute legend!!!

    I went to the Fix Bad Credit team as I was living with the burden each month trying to pay back debt due to unforeseen life circumstances that had occurred over the last few years which often led me taking time off work and only making the minimal payments. As a single parent I felt I wasn't getting anywhere. The Fix Bad Credit team have negotiated a massive saving for me and managed to consolidate the remaining debt into monthly affordable payments without interest being incurred. Any issues I may have had on my credit report and have now been removed. I look forward to being able to purchase a home in the future which wouldn't have been possible before. Thanks so much Fix Bad Credit Team, super grateful.
