The Baines & Ernst Service That Helps People Clear Debts In One Payment


Manchester (PRWEB UK) 28 December 2012

According to statistics released at the start of December 2012 by Credit Action – the national money education charity – outstanding personal debt in the UK stood at an eye-watering ?1.421 trillion.

Broken down, this means that the average adult owes ?28,925 (including mortgages). And with unemployment and redundancies still high, it’s easy to imagine clearing debts is top of the wish list for many people.

So, is it possible to clear debt in one go without the aid of a genie and a magic lamp? Baines & Ernst – a specialist financial solutions company in Manchester certainly thinks so.

“It is completely possible to clear your debts in one go – and reduce the total amount owed so you repay less.” says a Baines & Ernst spokesperson.

“We offer a number of solutions that help people get out of debt, and one of these solutions includes our Debt Settlement service. So if people have received a windfall, inheritance or have taken out a loan specifically for clearing debts, we can help them to clear what they owe at a reduced rate – helping them to save money too.” the Baines & Ernst spokesperson continues.

The company has specialised in helping people get out of debt since 1996 and has forged excellent relationships with over 3,500 creditors. This puts Baines & Ernst in a strong position to negotiate lower repayment rates for their customers, which makes this service a viable solution for people who want to clear their debts as soon as possible.

“In 2012 alone, we have managed to save our Debt Settlement customers on average ?2,000 – that’s a total of ?1.1 million since 2011. We work hard to negotiate the best settlement deals for our customers and will do all we can to help them repay less overall.” Says the Baines & Ernst spokes person.

So what about those people who can’t afford to settle their debts straightaway?

Baines & Ernst continues, “We understand that many people won’t have the finances available to settle their debts in one go, so we offer other solutions such as Debt Management Plans, IVAs and Debt Relief Orders. These solutions are all designed to help people find an affordable way to clear their debts if they’re struggling with repayments. So regardless of someone’s situation or financial circumstances, we will always do our best to help them find their way out of debt.”

So there it is – a way to clear all debts in one payment. So if a nice amount of money suddenly appears on the doormat in the morning and clearing debts is the first port of call, get in touch with Baines & Ernst and see if they could help to reduce the total amount owed too!

For Seniors Who Ask What Is A Reverse Mortgage, Southern California Lender Helps Shed Some Light On Questions and Concerns About The Most Popular, HECM Reverse Mortgage


(PRWEB) August 28, 2012

For those asking what is a reverse mortgage the answer is being made easier to understand by reverse mortgage specialists.

The property must also be the primary residents of the applying senior. If these requirements are met they the senior may participate in FHA’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program. This program enables the senior citizen to withdraw cash from the property. If the senior is approved for the HECM reverse mortgage the person can pick how they receive the equity from the home, a fixed monthly amount or a line of credit, or you can even do both.
