This letter proposing payment in instalments covers:
A letter proposing payments in instalments is an offer by the debtor to pay off an outstanding debt by regular fixed amounts over a period of time.
A proposal to pay in instalments will help to set out your financial ability to pay off a debt and avoid the need to go to court.
If you accept that you owe money to an individual or company but you currently don't have the financial resources to pay off the outstanding debt immediately, then you may offer to want to pay in instalments. This will show good intention and willingness to pay off debt and can stop a creditor from taking further action. It can also help with your cash flow, especially if you're a business.
You can choose to make repayments either weekly or monthly depending on your financial situation.
You can choose to make a request to the creditor to freeze any interest, however, the creditor does not have to accept this request. This will depend on your relationship with the creditor and the strength of your bargaining position.
You can choose to make a request for the creditor to consider any good credit history you have. This will help assure the creditor of your ability to meet the repayments on time and give you a stronger position when proposing payments in instalments.
It may be that the creditor isn't satisfied with the terms of the proposal. If this is the case, you should consider negotiating with the creditor and trying to come to an arrangement that works for both parties.
If you think you're going to struggle to pay off a debt through an instalment plan, you should consider contacting the National Debtline, which is a free and impartial service to help those who are struggling with debt and finances.
