  • Ditching My Gregory Pennington DMP! What Does it Entail?

    Hi, I want to get out of my DMP with Gregory Pennington. I have 21k outstanding debts with 8 creditors. GP are charging me 90 per month of my 550 payment as their management fee and I've decided I'm not happy paying this any more after 3.5 years of paying it!!!!! So, how easy (or difficult) is it to manage the debts myself? and how do I cancel my DMP? Is it just a case of sending GP a letter and cancelling the DD? Thanks

    You would need to start your diary .If you decide to go the unenforceable route you will need to send for your C CA from each creditor, but your detailed diary is a must so that our team can help , as each scenario can differ.
    if you do it today and you like it you can always do it again tomorrow

      DMPs especially the paid for ones are the work of the devil and aren't really a vehicle for you to pay your debt off, it's to make money for GP.

      I would just cancel the DD and email them telling them, then you need to get copies of all the "work" they have done on your behalf so that you know where you are with your debts, then look at UE, but as Nanna says, you need the info to let us know the details of timings, owners etc then we can suggest a way forward without lining GPs pocket

        Thanks for your reply. Is it that easy to cancel the DMP? No contract with GP or anything silly?

          you'll need to read your paperwork, but I can't see how they could hold you to a contract,

              I just informed my debt management company, cancelled the payment and left it at that.

                  Thank you for all your replies and support. I am so glad I found this forum! I will cancel my Gregory Pennington DD and send them a letter relieving them of their duties.
