About Debt Negotiation
Debt negotiation is also known as debt arbitration and is a means to reduce and resolve outstanding debts on behalf of individuals and businesses. Attorneys can utilize alternative dispute resolution to help clients facing past due debts and claims against them. Lawyers representing clients in debt negotiations must abide by the rules of the Florida State Bar.
There are many companies that advertise themselves as debt negotiation companies and offer customers a chance to greatly reduce their debts. Consumers who decide to use these companies should do their homework first by checking with the Better Business Bureau or Attorney General for any possible complaints filed against them. Typically, the companies charge large service fees paid up front over time but the debtor may find out that the money is not actually going toward paying off the debt. These companies are not regulated to the extent that lawyers are obligated to follow the State Bar rules.
The Advantages of Debt Negotiation
Attorneys negotiate with creditors on behalf of clients in the debt negotiation process. The outcome of a successful negotiation is reaching agreement on a debt payoff amount that is acceptable to the creditor and the debtor. It is favorable to both parties in that the creditor will receive money and the debtor often saves substantial amounts of principal and interest. The terms of the payoff are also part of the negotiation. A debtor with money to cover the agreement settlement figure may pay off in one lump sum. That is not always the case, however. The parties may decide on a payment plan with fixed payments on specific dates until the debt is fully paid. The debtor can benefit when there is a lower payoff as a final settlement opposed to paying off the full balance. Aside from bankruptcy, debt negotiation is the best route to take for handling past due balances owed by individuals or businesses.
