  • Arrangement to Pay and default notices

    Hi Niddy
    Basically I've got alot of unsecured debt that I'm now struggling to pay off. The majority of which has been used on house extension and improvement. Can't afford all my repayments each month now and have approached mortgage provider to remortgage to consolidate debt, no joy cos of my high levels of unsecured debt even though these would be paid off with the remortgage and if I didn't have these debts they would lend me what I wanted! Bren offered a secured loan but at a high interest rate and this worries me should income fall for whatever reason so left with a dmp which I'm going to enter however I want my credit file to be trashed with defaults as opposed to arrangement to pay markers so at least in6 years I'll hopefully have a clean slate! All debts are from last 2 years. Do I stop all payments and wait to get defaulted and then dmp from there, or do I write to them and tell them I'm looking to dmp and thus go straight into the arrangement to pay markers. Is it about 3 months without payments and then I'll get defaulted?
    Cheers

    Re: Arrangement to Pay and default notices

    Hi, someone else will be along to comment, but if truth be told, most lenders, whether on a DMP or not, will go ahead a default you whilst on an arrangement to pay. If your part of a managed DMP you may be unaware of it, as all the letters will go to the DMP instead of you.

    In reality, any monthly payment that falls short of the agreed monthly contractual payment, "should" result in a default being issued, between 3 to 6 months of the last contractual payment.

    However that being said, not ever lender complies with the requirements and some dont bother defaulting for 9 months plus.

    If it were me, id probably wait for the defaults first, but wait and see what others say.

      Just from personal experience if the creditor agrees to a dmp you won't get defaulted but will end up with late markers on your file which will end up trashing your credit rating, I only know this as one of my creditors I kept on a dmp for years did this then when I started down the unenforceable route last year they only just defaulted me last year.

        Each creditor is different but each have their own impact on your credit file. Best to get defaulted first

          I'm in agreement with SXGuy. I think it's better to get defaulted first.
