How We Can Help
Debt Review Removal
If you are currently undergoing debt review and have not yet received a court order declaring you over-indebted, we can provide professional assistance to remove you from debt review.
This process involves applying to a Magistrate’s Court to request that the debt review proposal be rejected. To succeed in this application, you must demonstrate to the court that your financial circumstances have improved and that you are not over-indebted. This will require evidence that you can afford your current living expenses and debt obligations on your current income.
Once the court order is obtained, we will notify your debt counsellor and all relevant credit bureaus to have your debt review indicator removed.

Reckless Credit Assessments
In accordance with the Act, it is mandatory for the credit provider to perform a comprehensive assessment of each consumer’s ability to fulfil their obligations by taking reasonable measures to investigate and evaluate the consumer’s understanding and appreciation of the proposed agreement’s obligations, as well as their ability to meet those obligations in a timely manner. Failure to carry out such an assessment could result in nullifying the consumer’s obligations or suspending the credit agreement.
- If the credit provider failed to carry out an assessment as required by the Act, regardless of the conclusion of such an assessment at the time.
- If the credit provider entered into the credit agreement with the consumer despite the fact that the information available to the credit provider indicated that the consumer did not generally understand or appreciate the consumer’s risks, costs, or obligations under the proposed credit agreement.
If the credit provider entered into the credit agreement with the consumer despite the fact that the information available to the credit provider indicated that entering into that credit agreement would cause the consumer to be over-indebted.
If the court declares that a credit agreement is reckless under 1 or 2 above, the court may either set aside some or all of the consumer’s rights and obligations under that agreement or suspend the force and effect of that credit agreement. If the court determines that a credit agreement is reckless under 3 above, the court may suspend the force and effect of that credit agreement until a date determined by the court and restructure the consumer’s obligations under any other credit agreements, which could entail extending the term of the agreement and reducing the consumer’s monthly payments.

Debt mediation is a process in which we work with your credit provider to negotiate a mutually agreeable plan for your debt repayment. We are strategically placed to negotiate a repayment plan for your debt obligations by agreeing on new repayment terms, such as a lower interest rate, a more extended repayment period, or a reduced principal amount.
The advantages of debt mediation can be summarized as follows:
Confidentiality: Debt mediation is a private and confidential process not recorded on any public credit record or debt review registry.
Flexibility: Debt mediation offers more flexibility than debt review because the parties can negotiate custom repayment plans that suit their circumstances.
Cost-effectiveness: Debt mediation can be more cost-effective as it involves fewer administrative costs and legal fees.
Faster resolution: Debt mediation can be quicker as it does not involve court proceedings, which can take longer to resolve.
