Consumer Proposal – Avoid Bankruptcy in North York
Bankruptcy is not the only option available to you to eliminate your debt. In many cases a consumer proposal is a better solution. In fact, almost 7 in 10 people experiencing debt problems in North York file a consumer proposal as an alternative to bankruptcy.
A consumer proposal is an option under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act to settle your debts for less than you owe and still receive the creditor protection only available through a Licensed Insolvency Trustee. You make a legally binding debt settlement offer to your creditors. You are able to keep your assets, including any equity in your home. You can pay the creditors in a lump sum or can spread those payments over a period of up to 5 years. Creditors accept the proposal if they believe they will receive more than they would if you were to file bankruptcy. You achieve lower monthly payments, have certainty as to your payments since interest stops and can begin the process of repairing your finances.
Many people consider a consumer proposal when they have been turned down for a debt consolidation loan, or when debt consolidation is too expensive. A consumer proposal also allows you to consolidate your debts into one monthly payments and so is a viable approach to debt consolidation if you have significant credit card debt, tax debts or unsecured lines of credit.
