The Basics of Debt Counselling and how it works:

From 1 June 2007, debt counselling services has been available to consumers who are unable to honour in a timely manner, all credit agreements to which they are party, as indicated by the their history of debt repayment.The Debt Counsellor will notify all Credit Providers and Credit Bureax of the application and then evaluate the Consumer?s indebtedness. If the Debt Counsellor determines that the Consumer is over-indebted, the Counsellor may recommend to the Magistrate's Court that one or more agreements be declared reckless and/or that the Consumers repayments be rearranged. This is done by extending the original contract and decreasing the monthly payments. If the Creditors all agree, this procedure can be voluntary and no court order is necessary.

A Creditor who receives a notice from a Debt Counsellor for debt review MAY NOT ENFORCE the agreement until a determination is made by the Court or Debt Counsellor.Once under debt counselling, a Consumer may not make any further debt. This is either until all debts have been paid in full and the Debt Counsellor has issued a clearance certificate or the Court decided that the Consumer is NOT OVER-INDEBTED.

The consultant will check that the form 16 is completed correctly and all supporting documents have been provided.The details on the form 16 are captured by the back office admin staff. Within 5 days (normally sooner) all creditors are notified with form 17.1 that consumer is applying for debt counselling. The debt counselling application is now in process.
