Take Back Control Of Your Destiny With Debt Counselling

Millions of active consumers in South Africa are over indebted. The fear and humiliation that grips your heart each time your phone rings, or when you get a threatening email or letter from your creditors is enough to steal your quality of life. Debt counselling may be a viable solution to you if you are having a tough time with your creditors.

There are some great benefits that debt counselling offer you. You can take back control of your financial wellbeing and your life, and stop worrying about the relentless calls and harassment from your creditors. Consider this solution and start taking back control of your finances on your road to becoming debt free.

What Are The Advantages of Debt Counselling?

  • Here are only a few of the many advantages that you can look forward to when taking up debt counselling in South Africa:
  • You have legal rights, creditors can’t take action against you for sixty days once you have been placed under debt review;
  • You enjoy greater financial freedom, since you only make one consolidated payment each month;
  • Your car and home will likely not be repossessed; and
  • Sleep better knowing that you have taken action to get your life back.

Debt consolidation can change your life

As a nation, South Africans are known for accruing huge amounts of debt. The Reserve Bank are constantly looking at ways to convince South Africans to save more money, to avoid financial disaster when times are tough.

Despite this, many South Africans find themselves in trouble with debt, owing too much money, to too many people.
Debt consolidation is often the only way out, but many people do not understand how this can change your life for the better.

Basically, debt consolidation is the act of taking out one big loan, to cover the costs of all other loans. This simplifies the re-payment process, allowing you to focus on repaying a single loan instead of many others that you might owe.

The biggest drawback of too much debt is that you could end up being blacklisted when you cannot pay the money back. This leads to a host of problems like not being able to buy anything on credit for a couple of years – even simple things like taking out a cellphone contract will not be possible as companies look at you with hawk-eyes before approving any credit.

The stress of having too much debt is immense and stress also has its own list of problems which include health issues, difficulty sleeping, depression and difficulties dealing with daily life and family matters.

If you are serious about improving and simplifying your debt situation before it is too late, you should consider debt consolidation right away.

Debt is an unavoidable concept for many people. When used as a benefit, it can be a powerful vehicle to increase your quality of life.

Pressing Questions about Debt Counselling

Debt Counselling can be the very thing that saves you from losing your most prized possessions, like your car or house due to failure to repay your debts. Too many times people do not apply for debt counselling because they do not understand what it is and the full scale of the benefits that one can enjoy from this service. Here are some of those questions that people have asked us concerning the debt counselling process.

Can you incur more debt whilst under debt counselling?
No. You are not allowed to apply for further credit when you are already under debt counselling. This means that you will also not be able to use your retail accounts and credit cards or any kind of debt. Should you attempt to apply for more debt while under this process, your application is going to be unsuccessful.

Are you allowed to choose which one of your accounts you would like to exclude from this process?
If you got summons from a particular account before signing the form, the creditor can ask to not be included in the debt counselling process. In such a case, you are going to have to make your own arrangements with that particular creditor to repay the debt.
In the case that you have already referred your summons to your attorney, do let them know that you are under debt counselling.

Are you allowed to default on payments because you cannot afford to pay them back?
Absolutely not. Even though it is understood that you are struggling to make payments that is why you are under debt counselling in the first place. We recommend that you rather take a reduced interim payments to the companies that you owe. This will show them that you are indeed serious about settling your debts.

Seek Financial Counselling Early in Life

Financial Advice at the Right Time Saves Problems

Although receiving financial advice is welcomed at any time during life, actively encouraging it early in life is essential. When debt has already nearly crippled you, it is too late to be pro-active. Financial crises occur periodically in the macro society in which we live, such as the recession in 2008 and 2009, but it also happens individually when consumers spend far more than they earn and then let debt get out of control. Once you enter this maelstrom, it is well-nigh impossible to swim out of it.

However, even at this late stage, financial advice from a reputable debt counselling firm is not only advisable- it is absolutely essential. This action could actually be a lifesaving decision and could be a turning point in your personal mishandling of your money. Breaking bad spending habits is difficult alone and usually needs formal intervention to reverse the negativity.

Financial advice in this situation includes discussing means of clearing the existing debt, consolidating different aspects of said debt and counselling on the process moving forward of how to avoid similar situations in future. How to resist the temptation to spend, spend, spend is probably the hardest thing for an indebted person to do. It is a habit that catches on easily and then grips like a high powered drug. In fact, spending is as addictive as any drug especially for people who suffer from depression and loneliness.

This may well be true, but the euphoria of shopping is short lived and the objects bought are either not worn or used at all and are deposited in a wardrobe or closet somewhere or they are given away. The sad truth is though, that some people embroil themselves in debt merely to keep ends meeting and to keep eating. This is the ugly truth of an embattled economy and rife unemployment.
