How do I know if a Debt Settlement Arrangement is the right solution for me?
If you have unsecured debt that you cannot repay, a debt settlement arrangement (DSA) could be the right choice for you.
What are the benefits for me?
Protection from your creditors
D V Mannion & Co will negotiate with your creditors on your behalf, putting an end to any demands for unpaid debt.
Under a Debt Settlement Arrangement you agree to repay a percentage of your overall debts that you can afford in one monthly payment over a given period of time.
No surprise changes
A Debt Settlement Arrangement is a legally binding arrangement between you and your creditors; so it cannot be changed without the agreement of both parties, meaning no surprise changes such as additional interest or charges added along the way.
Reasonable standard of living guaranteed
While you are making these repayments you are entitled to a reasonable standard of living. You will not be told how you should spend your allocated reasonable living expenses, so you are still in complete control of your spending.
Peace of mind
Once your final agreed monthly repayment is made and you have kept to the terms of the arrangement, your creditors will write off your remaining unsecured debt and your remaining secured debt will be restructured.
Entering into a Debt Settlement Arrangement should indicate to potential lenders that you are proactively addressing your financial situation, and on completion of the arrangement you will be solvent, which means you could be more eligible to obtain credit. However, the decision on whether or not to give credit is up to the lender and this is always the case.
How much will it cost me to apply?
D V Mannion & Co Ltd do not charge a consultation fee in order to determine if you are eligible to apply. After that, our PIP fees are built into the DSA repayment plan.
