Know thy neighbour's debt
Those figures include secured debt though, so potentially mortgages?
It’s whatever they have defaulted on and have set up a debt repayment plan for. So yes, mortgages could be included – although at a total stab in the dark guess, I’d expect more non home owners to have debt problems than house owners?Posted 4 years agounklehomeredSubscriber
Ahh, I used to be a credit underwriter, trust me, its waaaayyyyyy more mind boggling when you see the details.
“I owe 60K on maxed out accumulated credit cards, i’m rubbing my Overdraft up the wrong way and I missed two mortgage payments in the last 2 years… you know what? I want a new car…” 🙄
The really annoying thing was we knew KNEW that if we said no, someone else would say yes.
I do not miss that industry…

Can’t say as to now, but while tenants were generally more committed, they tended to get by treading water and not go bad. i.e. you’re gonna miss payments to your landlord, not your mortgage provider…Posted 4 years agobencooperMember
It’s interesting, but not really all that informative – this is only people who are in such bad shape that they have to go to this company for help. In Bearsden, population 28,000, that’s 135 people.
Not really surprisingly, people who get in that much trouble end up owing a lot.Posted 4 years ago
