Debt Review & Lease Agreements

The Debt Review process is a frustratingly slow process – debt counselor / credit providers and the consumer must all provide input.

A person under debt review cannot apply for any credit, but they can enter into a new lease agreement. This is high risk, as the applicant probably already feels over-indebted. On the other hand the applicant might be trying to cut costs by renting something cheaper.

TPN suggests, the landlord or estate agent phones the debt counselor to ask “What the applicant through the debt counselling process has budgeted for the monthly rent?” The debt counselor will be able to give you the budgeted rent amount – you can cross reference back to the rent applied for to ensure affordability.

Also a good idea to have someone co-sign or stand surety.
