What will it cost?
With any professional service, it is reasonable to expect that professional fees will have to be paid. This is very true with Debt Review.
Debt Counsellors commonly make use of commonly agreed industry fees along with suggestions from the National Credit Regulator to price their services. The costs for debt review are not very high, as the idea is to help debt stressed consumers get out of debt as soon as possible, not to make more expenses for consumers. The fees involved are built into each consumer’s debt repayment plan and is based on how much they end up repaying each month toward their debt. This means that the repayments are simply part of what consumers repay each month not over and above that amount.
The industry has set up a fee structure which makes allowance for consumers who have less money and repay less toward their debt each month, to pay their Debt Counsellor a smaller amount in professional fees. Even those consumers, who have more and eventually pay a higher amount toward their debt because they can afford to do so, benefit from agreed caps on fees. Let’s look at some examples of what debt review might cost a consumer or a couple. Couples make a joint application and don’t have to pay two sets of fees.
