Different Types Of Debt

all the information you need

Debt is the last taboo. But borrowing money, or taking on debt, isn't always a bad thing.

 

Debts that you can comfortably pay back over an agreed period, are sometimes appropriate in order to take the next step in life. 

 

It's only when your debts become unaffordable and unmanageable that problems can arise. In fact, the majority of borrowers start defaulting through no fault of their own, with the main reasons being;

• Ill health.

• Loss of job.

• Poor budgeting.

• Loss of earnings (overtime or self-employed earnings).

• Borrowing beyond their means.
