What is debt counselling?

Many South Africans can benefit from debt counselling without knowing it. As part of the Consumer Protection Act in South Africa, debt counselling is a very effective and affordable way to protect your assets and to recover your financial situation when you are in a tight spot.

The debt counselling process is made simple for consumers: You apply online and a debt counsellor assesses your financial situation. If you are declared over committed the debt counsellor will send your creditors a letter informing them that they have to contact your debt counsellor with any queries from there on out because you are under debt review.

You are then protected from your creditors and debt collectors. Your debt counsellor will approach your credit providers within the next few days to discuss your current repayment structure. They will prove to your creditors that you cannot afford your debt and that you need your debt restructured around your living expenses (which you provide the debt counsellor).

Debt counselling makes your repayments affordable so you can breathe easily knowing that you’re able to pay back your debt. Your debt counsellor can also negotiate lowered interest rates and penalty fees if you have any. Debt review is affordable because your debt counsellor’s fees will depend on your affordability and this will be included in your single repayment to a Payment Distribution Agency every month.

Debt counselling can be an option for you if you are thinking of consolidating your debt into a single repayment but you have a bad credit record and cannot qualify for loans for consolidating debt. Poor credit scorers have a hard time getting debt consolidation loans with affordable interest rates. With debt counselling your debt will be consolidated into one repayment even if you have a poor credit record.

Some South Africans look for credit consolidation when they have bad credit by reaching for short term online loans or blacklisted personal loans but these have very high interest rates and they’re not worth the trouble of consolidating.

If you’re tempted to take on a loan to pay back existing repayments or to afford basic living expenses like food or your children’s school fees you may be over indebted and debt counselling can be the perfect way of gaining control of your finances again. Apply sooner for debt review rather than later. Once you have received a Section 129 letter from a creditor that debt cannot be included in your debt review.

  15. Thank you for sharing a wonderful and interesting article about Debt to Freedom in Africa.

  16. Please permit me to use this medium to assist those in need of financial help.
    I want to recommend a reliable lender called Lee Cook who lent me 50k without stress. He's the CEO of OASIS FINANCIAL CONSULTANTS. If not for him my son would've died of meningitis few years ago. After sometime i was able to payback the $50k loan and reapplied for 300k loan of which i was granted. Today I make up to USD10,000 in a month by going into a private business. Someone was good to me by sharing their email link with me, so now i am hoping i could help someone else out there by sharing it.
    If you're in need of any loan and rest assured you can pay back; you can reach them at: (oasisconsultant at consultant dot com) or (contact at theoasisconsultants dot com)
    Try it and you could share it with someone in financial need also!
