We regularly focus on our Resolution and Corporate Services in the Bell & Company blog posts but our Bankruptcy service is key to many distressed borrowers across Northern Ireland.  It would seem the UK as a whole has learnt little from the so called credit crunch with some rather alarming figures recently released. Currently in Britain there is £61billion of debt. One in four, or four million people, have credit card accounts with arrears on them. UK Mortgage lending has reached pre 2008 highs with many borrowers taking advantage of ultra- low interest rates.

Much of our previous focus in posts has been about the rise in interest rates. There is numerous conflicting views in the press when interest rates will rise. It seems something always comes up when the opportunity presents itself to the Bank of England. Nonetheless, rates look set to increase in the United States and typically the United Kingdom follows suit. Whenever the rise occurs many borrowers will fall into difficult when all of their credit commitments increase. In all likelihood we will see and influx of resolution clients and unfortunately those who require our Bankruptcy services.
