In order to support the effectiveness of the reform and to compel debt contract managers to comply, the Attorney General also „strengthens the authority of the official beneficiary” over the proposed debt agreements, which would create „unreasonable financial hardship for vulnerable debtors.” Debt agreements are suitable for people who have uncontrollable debt, that is, people who are unable to pay their debts when they mature. In addition, in the past ten years, they must not have had a previous debt contract or gone bankrupt. There are also thresholds for assets, income and all unsecured debt (for more information – contact Safe Debt Management). Veda Advantage and Dunn and Bradstreet and other credit bureaus can use NPII information to inform all creditors that you are a party to a debt agreement. A creditor can register a default against your name with one of the two credit banks before acceptance. Your debt contract remains in your credit file for 5 years from the date of entry and may affect your ability to obtain credits during that period. If your creditors accept your debt contract proposal, you will know exactly how much you must pay each week or fourteen days or a month for the duration of your agreement. This allows you to budget and plan your finances. You also do not pay interest on your debt agreement as soon as it has been accepted by the creditor and there are no late fees or penalties. Professional advisors and debtors are asked to seek appropriate advice on their living conditions. This consultation must be provided by qualified specialists. Too often, we hear about debtors seeking advice from organizations that we believe are not acting in the best interests of the debtor.

The cost of setting up a debt contract with safe Debt Management is $1,958.00. This amount is part of your debt contract – you don`t have to pay it separately.

In addition, we explain all the documents and prepare and hand over the debt contract. Part IX of the 1966 Bankruptcy Act (Cth) offers another alternative to bankruptcy by providing debtors with an inexpensive mechanism to enter into a binding agreement with their creditors to free the debtor from debt. This part of the law can only be used by debtors who, in general, are not demonstrable debt. This means that you must continue to pay them outside of your contract.
Once you paid the agreed amount, you paid that debt. Before you compete or consider a debt contract, you should explore your other options for managing uncontrollable debt. Anyone wishing to avoid bankruptcy and with income, debt and assets below a legal limit can apply for a debt contract for up to three years or five years if you own a home. A Part IX debt contract is a legal agreement with your creditors to repay your debts at a reduced rate that you can afford. This is a binding agreement for both parties, which falls under Part IX of the Bankruptcy Act. That doesn`t mean you`re going bankrupt. Fox Symes charges an administration fee for managing your debt contract for the duration of your contract. By law, these fees must be expressed both in dollars and as a percentage of the payments you must make once the debt contract is accepted. Let`s see an example of how it works.
