Future contributions to the plan may have to be increased depending on the circumstances. These plans are generally a long term commitment so you should be aware that it could take a number of years to complete. There are safeguards in place to protect the consumer such as: The debt management company should make it clear that you will be charged, what those charges are for and the amount. They should give you a clear idea as to how long you will be in the plan, or at the very least a reasonably accurate estimate. If it is evident that by charging you commission on the plan they would be undermining you potential to repay your debt they should refer you to non-profitmaking organisations who can help you without imposing any fees. Checkout these resources to such organisations: Payplan - Citizens Advice Bureau Consumer Credit Counselling Service Debt Advice Foundation Office of Fair Trading Insolvency Service Debt Managers Standards Association (DEMSA) You should also be kept fully informed of any pertinent correspondence between the debt management company and your creditors.
