What happens if they don’t agree to my repayments?
If you have room in your budget to be flexible, for example you can reduce some spending without being too unrealistic, you could agree to pay a little extra to your creditors. This will help them to see you’re working towards paying off your debts and could mean they’re more likely to agree to your repayment plan or stop extra charges being added.
For example, a realistic adjustment to your budget could be to temporarily reduce the amount you spend on clothing and footwear because it’ll only take you three or four months to catch up with your payments. As it’s a short term reduction you can probably get by with the clothes and footwear you already have.
An unrealistic adjustment would be cutting out some spending when you know you’ll have items to pay for, or cutting down so much that it’s not practical to live on such a small amount.
Only reduce spending where it’s possible to do so. If there’s no room to adjust the spending in your budget you mustn't agree to payments more than the amount you’ve already worked out you can pay.
