Hi everyone,

 

Basically between me & my husband we have £18,000 of debt.

 

£6,000 - Santander (Car HP)

£5,990 - Lloyds TSB (Overdrafts)

£1,700 - Top up for Car HP finance

£2,000 - Hitachi capital (CSL sofa)

£1,700 - ISME catalogue

£700 - Next directory

 

This is around £1,000 per month, NOT paying off the overdrafts, just interest! Hubby earns £1200 a month and i am unemployed due to a terminal illness. We have 2 children. Monthly income is £1600. So once petrol and food/baby items have been paid for, we're left with nothing. I have looked into a payplan DMP, and have been offered it at £330 a month, then £240 for car HP as they can not take that on. I have read that they often can't stop interest and that gets added on at the end of the plan, meaning we'd need to pay for a long longer. Does anyone have any advice for us, should we be taking this path? Or are there other options?

How old are all these accounts?


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Santander - 9 months (was a 34 month HP)

Llloyds - we have been banking with them for 7+ years, but overdraft 1 year

Top up car finance (with creation) - again, 9 months

Hitachi capital - 7 months (Was 30 months to begin with)

Isme - 4 years

Next - 3 years

if you must go with a DMP dont use a fee paying one

 

CCCS [step change] or payplan.

 

however

 

i know you are saying you've no late fees etc

 

but most catalogue debts are littered with them.

 

you say the car finance has a 'top up'

 

do you mean you've refinanced with the same company?

 

if you have ever refinanced i hope you've not had PPI anywhere.
