23% of households in Scotland are currently living in extreme fuel poverty

Utility Bills Debts

The price of utilities has risen exponentially over the past few years, and this has caused major problems for households across Scotland.  Current figures from Fuel Poverty Scotland reveal that 34% of households in Scotland are currently living in fuel poverty and 23% are living in extreme fuel poverty.

Alongside rising prices that have driven many people into unmanageable arrears, utility companies can be quick to take action and cut off your supply if you fall behind with payments.

If you have fallen behind with payments or are experiencing difficulties, you should speak to your utility provider and try to work out a repayment plan.  We can advise you here about the best way to proceed.

Often, people who are having problems paying such bills are also having problems with debts in other areas too.  At TC Debt Solutions we can help you to find a way out of all of these problems.

Payday loans are all over the media

Payday Loans Debts

Lenders spend vast amounts of advertising budget to target people when they have hit a low and are experiencing problems that have an immediate impact on their day-to-day living.

These short-term loans can easily become longer-term debts for someone and they come with eye-watering rates of interest that can rapidly escalate your debts to new levels, with all the stress and strain that that brings with it.

If you are struggling with payday loan debts, please speak to the team at TC Debt Solutions to see how we can help you.

We can shield you from Sheriff officer debts

Sheriff Officer Debts

Many debts end up in the hands of sheriff officer who will pursue you for those debts – often in quite robust ways that can lead to a degree of distress in some cases.

At TC Debt Solutions, we have long experience of dealing with such methods of debt recovery and shielding you from them.

We can provide advice and support throughout, and act as intermediaries for you – dealing directly with sheriff officers and creditors on your behalf.

They can take money from your bank account and wages

Child Maintenance Debts

In child maintenance matters, each parent has a financial responsibility for their children.

However, where people are separating or getting divorced then it is usually the parent who is not living with them on a day-to-day basis, and who consequently does not have daily care of the child or children, who is obliged to pay child maintenance.

The Child Support Agency (CSA) is quick to pursue arrears if you have fallen behind with your child maintenance payments.

Like HMRC, they have special powers of enforcement and can take money from your bank account and wages – alternatively, they could apply for a court order.
