Despite difficult lender, a 10% settlement can be achieved
A settlement of 10% can still be achieved, even when faced with a difficult lender
A couple with a large shortfall of over £120,000 with a notoriously difficult lender approached us for help. While we had overseen the sale of the property and had been attempting to negotiate with the lender for quite some time, the couple began to consider the option of personal insolvency. Personal Bankruptcy has so many negative connotations associated with it. Bell & Company feel, however, since 2008 the stigma associated with the process has gradually lessened.
Bankruptcy can have benefits and it is an excellent tool when armed with the best advice. Sometimes, if a person is saddled with excessive, unaffordable unsecured debt then Personal Bankruptcy can be the best route forward. Our team was able to utilize innovative new strategies and within a few months, the lender settled at 10%. A massive achievement, as this lender, in particular, is not usually open to negotiations!
