How Do I Negotiate With Creditors?

How do I negotiate with Creditors?  

In summary, no creditor/debt collection agency is the same and they often have different processes and protocols along with various criteria that must be met. One thing we do advise is being proactive and liaising amicably with your creditors. This will bring about the best result.

However, the above is easier said than done. Debt is incredibly emotional and debtors often cannot contain their emotion and this can lead to aggression in their approach which will be frowned upon by the lender. Furthermore, when liaising directly with a lender they will find it difficult to fully empathise with your circumstances. It would be a case of you presenting information and the creditor perhaps taking the view of – “well you would say that!”

Successful methods of negotiation

Bell & Company believe that appointing an intermediary can greatly increase the chance of success in debt negotiations. Having an intermediary can remove the emotion from the situation. We liaise amicably with creditors whilst still fighting your corner. Ensuring both parties are satisfied with the outcome.
