Help for mail order catalogue debt problems
Buying goods via catalogues like Empire, Kays, Next, is very popular these days, not only for purchasing clothes, but also for obtaining many different kinds of consumer goods. Catalogue companies produce glossy catalogues for you to select and buy their products. Most of them distribute to agents who act on their behalf within your locality, selling the goods to customers or to individual customers direct. Payment is made by weekly installments until the goods are paid for in full. The payment terms are normally covered by a fixed-sum credit agreement.
Charge Card Accounts
The customer is provided with a charge card and a credit limit. Repayments are made on a flexible monthly payments basis. This is a running account credit agreement with an interest rate that is likely to be higher than other standard credit cards.
Help with Credit Card Debts
A credit card provider issues a credit card which entitles the holder to use the card to purchase goods and services from organisations which have arrangements with the issuers of the card. Credit card holders are permitted to purchase up to a set credit limit. Credit is sometimes available interest free for a few weeks (but not on cash withdrawals). Statements are issued monthly by the credit card company to the holder and must be paid in full to avoid interest charges. Payment is by monthly installments. Minimum payments required are equivalent to the higher of either 5% of the outstanding balance or a nominal amount.
Credit card budget account debts
Similarly to standard credit cards, the customer is provided with a credit card and a credit limit is fixed. Repayment is by fixed monthly installments. This operates as a running account agreement.
Hire Purchase agreement debt
A hire purchase agreement is a hire/lease agreement which contains an option to purchase clause. It is normally an agreement where a customer selects goods from a supplier who then sells them to a finance company which hires them to the customer under the HP agreement. Payments are usually made monthly. The goods subject to HP agreement remain the property of the creditor until the final installment and the option to purchase fee have been paid. Until this has been done the debtor may not dispose of or sell the goods and may be liable to criminal prosecution if this is done without the creditors permission. However, this will often be given if the debtor undertakes to remit the proceeds of sale.
A mortgage is given by a lender such as a bank, building society or centralised lender to buy residential or commercial property. Any additional mortgage or extra mortgage is known as a second mortgage, and these can can be given, for example, for home improvements or debt consolidation. The lender may charge a higher rate of interest on the second mortgage. If you do not keep up repayments you are likely to lose your home.
Personal loan debts
The customer is offered a personal loan with a fixed rate of interest built in at the beginning of the loan. Repayment is by a fixed monthly payment over an agreed period of time. The interest rate on all the above is relatively high.
Loan sharks debts
Loan sharks are back street lenders that operate on a door to door basis and do not operate with a credit licence - It is a criminal offence to loan money without a credit licence. There has been a great deal of publicity about 'loan shark' creditors who charge extortionate rates of interest (from 500% into the millions), use harassment and threats of violence to enforce payment or take benefit books as security for loans. Any creditor indulging in these practices should be reported to both the police and the local Consumer Protection/Trading Standards department, but borrowers/clients who complain should not be named without their specific consent.
Recent recessions have given this old fashioned business a new lease of life. Goods are taken in as security and called 'pledges'. There is still a class difference in the pawn-broking trade. Those operating up-market and charging low rates of interest for valuable 'pledges' are known as 'City Pawnbrokers' and those operating down-market are historically known as 'Industrial Pawnbrokers'. It is another fixed-sum agreement typically costing between 25% - 200% APR.
Store Cards debt
Most of the High Street shops now offer credit facilities to customers wishing to purchase goods from them. If customers cannot pay cash, they are encouraged to use one of the store's credit facilities. There are a number of different forms of credit used.
Unsecured loan debts
A separate loan account is opened for the customer. Interest is built in from the beginning and repayments are paid on a monthly basis from their current account by Standing Order to the loan account. An early settlement rebate will normally be available where the loan is repaid in full before the expiry of its agreed term.
