Why do some business say Debt Agreements or Personal Insolvency Agreements

The reason you find plenty of expensive commercials on the TV in the Adelaide area inviting you to go for one of these alternatives is that there is lots of cash in it for the companies that administer them. You will notice, if you havent already, that every company has the tendency to give (biased) advice

according to the product that they offer. For instance, Debt Agreement Companies ridicule bankruptcy companies and so it goes with much of the financial services industry.

Should I think about a Debt Consolidation Loan?

There are sometimes the very rare conditions where a debt consolidation loan is the most ideal idea. Usually the concern with them is that all it is really doing is packaging 5-15 different debts into one enormous debt. If you are battling to pay all your various loans now, then why do you presume it will be amazingly easier to get one enormous bill? 9 times out of 10 it is just not going to make it easier. Just to make everything even worse you usually will have to pay up front for the ‘ luxury’ of this choice.

Bankruptcy and the Family Home

Practically everybody is on an emotional level connected to their home; it’s where the kids have grown up, it’s where you appreciate life on a day to day basis.

Will the bank let me keep my house even if I’m a bankrupt?

Why would the bank want bankrupt customers? Wouldn’t they really want to sell your house and not take the risk? Keep in mind – the bank that has kindly offered you the cash for your house is making good money each month in interest from you, month in and month out. Just as long as you manage to keep up to date with your monthly payments then the bank prefers you in there at all costs. Nonetheless it is normally not the bank’s call – if a trustee thinks that there is enough equity in your house the trustee will make you and the bank to sell your house.

What aspects would contribute to losing the house?

Equity! If you are up to date with your payments then the most important problem is equity. A trustee has a job to get as much money in order to help pay your debts once you go bankrupt. Equity is the ticket here. Supposing that you have $300,000 equity on your property and you have $100,000 worth of debt and no other way to pay the debt then the trustee sees your equity as a solution to pay back your debt therefore they are going to sell your house to settle the debt and give you whatever money remains from the sale.

How is equity determined?

Lots of people are not confident about what exactly equity is, and how it is figured out– but it is really vital to find out considering that if you get it, it can mean the difference between keeping and losing your home. There are a few things you will need to understand here. First of all, your gut reaction or theory about the real worth of the home is perhaps far too generous. Many people feel their home is worth more than it actually is.

Secondly, when you declare personal bankruptcy the trustee may wonder how you determined your price for the house. Sometimes they will ask for more detail about your valuation, maybe a rates notice or a real estate agency’s assessment or a registered valuation. A straightforward strategy would be to look on www.realestate.com.au then click on the ‘Sold’ tab on that site and search for recent house sales in your community or area. This will help you get some idea of the reality of the marketplace right now. Bear in mind, the assessment is based upon a quick sale not a skillful real estate agent’s advertising and marketing campaign. So If you actually want a good idea, I would undoubtedly encourage getting a valuer and asking them to give you 2 values for your home, one as a typical sale, and the other as a ‘quick sale’. This will give you a better appreciation for your home’s worth. Being aware of this step is crucial, so get some advice before going forward, call us on 1300 818 575.

What if my Partners name is on the Home Loan?

Typically when a couple purchase a home one income just isn’t enough to secure the loan, so the bank/lender will have each partners register for the loan. When your home is purchased both names are on the mortgage from the bank and the title deed of the house as joint tenants.

Let’s say Mick and Susie bought a home 4 years ago for $400,000 without any deposit so their mortgage was also $400,000. Mick is a builder and needs to go bankrupt but Susie has a good job teaching high school and doesn’t need to go bankrupt.

However, the house has not risen in price in the 4 years they have used it and they also have only just managed to pay interest on the loan during that time so ultimately they still have a $400,000 mortgage on a home worth $400,000.

Mick can then file for bankruptcy and just as long as they manage to keep paying the mortgage, rates etc. they can continue to keep the home for the 3 years Mick is bankrupt. This action will, in no way, affect Susie’s credit rating or force her to declare bankruptcy also. There is a lot to think about when it concerns homes and bankruptcy so if you have questions don’t hesitate to call us about your house on 1300 818 575.

Suppose My House has too much Equity what can I do?

In truth, this applies to cars or other assets you may have as well. What you can not afford to do is assume that everything will be ok.
