Consumer Proposals in Waterloo and Kitchener
The Consumer Proposal
A consumer proposal is a tool for those who would like to pay off debt. It will offer the creditors the repayment of your debt but at terms that will be more favorable to you, the person who owes them money.
It is used to reduce interest payments, reduce the balance, or to extend the length of the loan

What Exacty Is A Consumer Proposal after all?
A consumer proposal is a formal offer to your creditors. It shows that you want to honor your obligation to pay the debt, especially before it becomes unmanageable. However, you need some leeway to accomplish this.
Who Can File A Consumer Proposal For You?
Only a Licensed Insolvency Trustee (LIT) can develop a consumer proposal. It is a formal offer that is binding on both you and the creditor and is administered by the LIT. Usually, it consists of an offer to pay the creditors a percentage of the balance, to extend the time to pay, or both. It is limited to five years. You make the payments through the LIT, who, in turn, sends the money to your creditors.

Is A Consumer Proposal Right For You?
Not necessarily. If you owe less than $1,000 or over $250,000, it is unlikely that you will fall under the qualifications. However, mortgage debt, and other exclusions, may make you a viable candidate. In order to decide if you qualify and if the action is appropriate for your circumstances, contact a Licensed Insolvency Trustee.
