Payment Break Ending

A Payment Holiday is offered by creditors that allow you to miss the occasional monthly payments agreed in advance.

Some lenders record a Payment Break on your Credit Report as an Arrangement to Pay.

The consequences for your Credit Score on adding an “Arrangement to Pay” schedule could affect your ability to take out more credit in the future.

When payment breaks are ending you need to understand what happens next.

What to do when payment holiday ends?

When the payment break ends you will need to increase the value of your future payments or add additional months to the end of the credit agreement.

Be prepared that creditors may not agree on a debt repayment plan you suggest.

As the lenders will try to charge interest rates and receive higher payment values we strongly recommend receiving advice for a professional debt consultant.
