Multiple Debts

There are various types of debt and different ways of dealing with these. If you are faced with multiple debts you will need to identify urgent debts and deal with these as a priority. The Law Centre offers free and impartial money advice and can help you to deal with your debts. If you need help it is best to seek advice at an early stage and to communicate with creditors rather than ignore the problem. If you are in financial difficulties it is usually better to let your creditors know about this and seek advice about how to deal with the difficulties.

Examples of priority debts include

Mortgage and Rent Arrears

Utility arrears

Council tax arrears

CSA Maintenance arrears

Income Tax arrears



Examples of non-priority or less urgent debts include

Credit / Store card debt
