Hello, i'm new to this forum so i'm not quite sure where i should post this! Me & my partner have littlewoods & next catalogues, & i'm really struggling to keep up with all the payments! is there any way i can reduce the minimum payment with any of these if so anyone done it before & how did you manage to get them to agree! I'm starting to worry about this now as i don't want to get a bad credit rating but just can't afford the minimum payments they are asking for! I'm a stay at home mum and my partner works but we have lots of bills to pay and these ones haven't been my priority!

 

Any help would be highly appreciated!

 

Thankyou

It may be possible to negotiate reduced payments although Mail Order companies can be difficult and don't like freezing interest and charges . I would suggest that you speak to one of the charitable advice agencies who often have greater success with these companies. (Never try and reason with them over the telephone) However I cannot see how such an arrangement can be made without affecting your credit ratiing.

Catalogue debts are not a priority at all, I suggest that you both make yourselves an Income and Expenditure calculation.

List all priority debts, Rent/mortgage, council tax, utilities, TV Licence,food/clothing.travel to work, insurances etc.

Then all non priority debts the catalogues etc., the your net income from all sources, calculate from this your ''disposable'' income take a sum for contingencies, the remainder is what you can afford to split between the non priority creditors.

 

The catalogue firms are usually quick to default accounts and pass debts on to collection agencies, the reduced payments if agreed will be reported on credit files.

No write TELLING them that due to unforseen circumstance you are reducing payment to £x pcm until further notice, so it would be advantageous to them to freeze interest and charges.
