  • Those that have income but their income is not enough to pay off their monthly debt installments.
  • If credit providers have issued a section 129 directing that one must seek the service of a debt counsellor.

Debt Counselling

The Debt Sage plan is available to those that are over-indebted. One needs to first contact the debt service providers to enlist their sevices. This can be done via there website where all contact details are made available. A debt counsellor will then help the customer by conducting a free debt assessment to check whether they qualify for debt counselling. 

If you qualify, Debt Sage will put you under debt review and notify all your creditors that you are under debt review. This step will happen only if the debt assessment states that one needs to go for debt counselling. Debt Sage wiil then negotiate on your behalf with the credit providers for a better repayment amount by either increasing your payment duration or reduction of interest rate. A payment plan will then be devised stating a new repayment plan and terms. 

Debt Sage will make the repayment plan a court order until your credit record is clean. The debt counselling may exist for 3 – 5 years, however, you can pay the debt even before the agreed time. A clearance certificate will be issued to you when you successfully clear your debt. Another copy will be sent to the credit bureaus so that the your credit information gets updated. 

Debt Consolidation

Debt Sage’s debt consolidation solution is for those that want to put all their debts into one affordable loan.

However, those who tend to benefit more from this solution are those with high credit scores and afford to repay their debt. The solution has its own limitations, therefore, if you are over-indebted you should not go for a debt consolidation solution but rather apply for debt counselling. 

Debt Sage debt solution helps customers consolidate their debt into one bigger loan. The company negotiates with creditors to reduce interest rates on loans so that lower interest rates can be paid. Customer credit history matters when it comes to reducing interest rates. A higher credit score will help decrease interest on loans. 

Consolidation loans that are available in the market include the secured loan and the unsecured loan. A secured loan is a loan that will have a customer’s asset(s) attached to the loan as collateral.
