Debt Helpline UK – Enquiries Doubled!

On October 29, 2009, in News, by Lewis Alexander

Lewis Alexander, the personal debt consolidation service based in Manchester England, reports that calls to the debt helpline they offer have doubled for the months of September / October 2009 when compared to previous years.

The “credit crunch” has obviously been the contributing factor of changes in circumstance for most people within the UK over the last 18 months.  Many people will just carry on and find new or alternative employment where for others, it is much harder to do so.

This can be down to several factors such as age, ability, health, stress, depression, location etc.

Most calls received by Lewis Alexander on their personal debt helpline are from people who have recently suffered a change in circumstance and need initial advice on how to deal with personal debt based on the change they personally have suffered.

  • The main advice to take on board is that all priority debts such as Rent, Mortgages (including secured home loans), Council Tax, Electricity, Gas and Water are paid, or at least the companies are contacted by the individual to make new and possibly reduced payment arrangements for the short term future!
  • Many credit companies and lenders will not offer this advice freely to the debtor and they put extra pressure on the situation that legally need not be there. Due to the way priority debts are structured under the consumer credit act, consumers must honour these first!

For more detailed advice regarding a change in personal circumstance, please conatact one of our trained debt advisors today in total confidence.  Our lines are open and your call is FREE from a landline, call 0800 018 6868
