What is a ‘Debt Relief Order’?

Considered to be the new alternative to bankruptcy, anyone owing under £15,000 in debt – whilst living on a minimal surplus income – could now classify for a Debt Relief Order. A scheme that has been greatly welcomed by the Citizens Advice Bureau.

Under this new scheme, lenders and creditors must wait a period of 30 days before trying to collect these debts, to give homeowners the time they need to find the assistance they need.

What has inspired this new scheme?

According to a report released by Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB), most homeowners looking for help to pay off their debt will never be able to do so during their own lifetime.

On average, a typical homeowner would need 93 years to pay off a £16,971 loan – a timeframe that unfortunately cannot be shortened for some due to low incomes, illness, disabilities or job loss.

In a survey taken amongst 1,407 people in England and Wales during July 2008, the CAB found of this number:

    The average CAB client owed two-thirds more than 7 years ago
    50% had debts consisting of mortgage repayments, rent, fuel bills or council tax
    10% had more than 10 credit debts i.e. credit cards, overdrafts and personal loans
