Debt

Debt is an amount owed to a person or organisation for money borrowed. Debt can be represented by a bank loan, payday loan, credit card, mortgage, rental agreement, hire purchase or any other form stating repayment terms and, if applicable, interest requirements. These different forms of borrowing all imply intent to pay back an amount owed by a specific date, which is set forth in the repayment terms.

In this section you will find information about debt and how you can deal with problems that arise from owing money that you cannot afford to pay back.
