Recently the Queensland Government threatened to seize a Brisbane woman’s home to recoup a debt of $6151.00.
It is part of several measures the Queensland Government introduced to recover unpaid fines, with more than $160 million outstanding.
Letters warning of property seizures have been sent to 11 individuals and 4 businesses in QLD, in a bid to recoup $257,000 in outstanding fines since a trial of the strategy began on January 1 2010.
Asset checks are undertaken on fine-defaulters, allowing the Government to seize property including homes and cars to pay back debts.It is imperative that people take from this, the importance of paying all debts on time. If you leave your bills and debts unpaid, you’re not only facing defaults and marks on your credit file; it could lead to your home being repossessed, irrelevant of the size of the debt.
If you are overwhelmed with the numerous debts that you have to repay every month, then it is probably time for you to get a debt consolidation loan.
A debt consolidation loan is the process of taking multiple loans and debts and combining them into a single loan (a debt consolidation loan). A debt consolidation loan can help you save money by reducing the amount of interest you pay, reduce repayment periods and improve personal cash flow.
A debt consolidation loan can also make your time spent paying bills and debts a lot simpler, as you only have one repayment to make each month, fortnight or week instead of many.
