Debt Consumer Proposals

devider

Loans can be revolving door for some who can’t manage it. Borrowing from one lender to pay another and continuing to accumulate debt. It can quickly get out of control if you are unable to make payments.

If this is your situation, it’s not the end of the road financially. Many institutions provide a solution through consumer proposals, which is another option to personal bankruptcy. A consumer proposal is legal agreement that’s negotiated with your lenders through a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT). In this settlement you may only repay a fraction of what you owe, and your creditors agree to forgive the balance.

What is the process?

To find out if a consumer proposal is the right option for you, meet with a LIT about your financial situation. If it is agreed that this is the right choice for you, the LIT create a proposal that works for both you and your creditors.

    1. The LIT will file the proposal with the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy.  Once your proposal is filed, payments to your unsecured debts and/or garnishment of your wages will stop.
    2. The LIT will present the proposal to your creditors which includes a report detailing your personal situation and the reason for your financial difficulties.
    3. Creditors then have 45 days to either accept or reject the proposal.

To qualify you must owe no more than $250,000.00, excluding a residential mortgage, and cannot repay your unsecured debts in a reasonable amount of time.
