Unsecured credit is credit or loans where the debtor, (the person who owes the money) did not secure the debt or loan to an asset. This means the money owed is not secured by a piece of property that is worth something. Unsecured debt can be eliminated in a bankruptcy. You can also include secured debt, like a car loan or a mortgage, but if you want to keep those assets, you must continue to pay the lender under the existing terms of the loan you signed with them.
Although filing for bankruptcy does have advantages, before you consider a bankruptcy we’d like to discuss your situation and help you find the best financial option for you. There are alternatives to bankruptcy and the team at Yanch Dey & Associates Ltd. can discuss your options, like debt counselling and consumer proposal.
