Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers about debt counselling or debt review

What is Debt Counselling ?

The purpose of debt review is to assist an over – indebted consumer who is experiencing difficulties in meeting all his/her credit obligations in a timely manner.  The debt counsellor will assess the financial position and life style of the consumer and make certain recommendations.

The consumer needs to understand that this is a voluntary and a consensual process which will result in a tribunal or a magistrates court, granting an order to restructure the consumer’s financial obligations.

The success of the process depends primarily on the willingness of the consumer to stick to the rearrangement plan and to not inure any more debt by entering into any further credit agreements.

It is important that the consumer understands that debt counselling does not mean that he/she will not need to repay what is owed to the creditor or take the program as a payment holiday.

What is over-indebtedness ?

A consumer is over-indebted if he/she cannot service his/her debts in a timely manner as agreed with credit providers.

The following are some of the indicators of over-indebtedness:

  • You borrow money to pay other debts;
  • You use your credit card and overdraft facilities to pay debts, buy food and other necessities;
  • You skip payments on some accounts in order to pay others;
  • You receive letters of demand and summonses from your credit providers and/or lawyers;
  • you have judgments against you.
