Contact D. Thode & Associates for a FREE “know your alternatives” consultation. We are a Licensed Insolvency Trustee – Proudly Serving Burnaby and the Province of British Columbia since 2003.
A consumer proposal is a possible alternative to bankruptcy.
If you are eligible for the process, we can work as an administrator between you and your creditors to restructure your debt payments to make your monthly debt payments more manageable.
A consumer proposal is a negotiated settlement between debtors and their creditors, mediated by a licensed insolvency trustee, acting as an administrator under the consumer proposal. It is legally binding negotiated settlement, so once the terms are fulfilled, the debtor is legally released from all debts. Consumer proposals are generally only available to people who owe less than $250,000 (not including debts like a mortgage).
Other Common Questions About Consumer Proposals.
What is the Process?
We’ll work with you to determine what kind of monthly payment you can afford. We will need a complete list of your assets and liabilities to figure out a fair solution for you and your creditors. Then we’ll present a proposal to your creditors that will consolidate all your debts into one easy monthly payment. You can usually discharge all of your debt over a few years of payments.
What If My Proposal is Rejected?
Creditors have 45 days to accept or reject your proposal. If it is rejected, we can make changes to the proposal and resubmit it. We can also consider other options to pay your debts, or (after we have exhausted all other options) you can declare bankruptcy.
What Happens If I Miss a Payment?
If you cannot make the monthly payments required by the proposal, it can be annulled. If the proposal is annulled, you and your creditors will be in the same situation that you were before the customer proposal was presented.
