(PRWEB UK) 8 September 2012
Trust Deed Scotland, one of Scotland’s leading trust deed providers, has announced a new service that is going to be introduced in September. The service will provide a dedicated debt advice line designed to give information about trust deeds and also debt in general.
Thousands of Scottish residents are currently struggling with debt and the problem doesn’t seem to be abating. More and more people are starting to turn to trust deed companies for help as a result.
A trust deed in Scotland is designed to reduce monthly debt expenditure whilst still appeasing creditors by ensuring they receive a regular payment. This arrangement gives the debtor more money for essential items and the cost of living and ensures that the debt is paid off albeit at a lower rate.
The new advice line will be advertised on Trust Deed Scotland’s website and will have specially trained debt advisors standing by to take calls. This is in addition to the company’s normal hotline and will be available in the evenings as well as during the day.
This move is quite a radical approach and is something that few trust deed companies across the country are doing. A spokesperson at Trust Deed Scotland said “We want to provide a debt management service to our customers but also sensible advice that will help them to reduce their debts and stop moving debts around or using debt to pay off more debt. We care about our customers and their debt problems and believe our debt advice line will become very popular with those struggling with their finances.”
In addition to the hotline, those struggling with debt can also send in questions and problems regarding debt and some will be answered online, although the sender will remain anonymous. There will also be a new online forum created that will be moderated by a Trust Deed Scotland debt advisor each day. All questions and posts to the forum will be answered within 24 hours.
Whilst a lot of the advice given may revolve around trust deeds, there will also be a lot of general advice given including how to budget properly, how to choose the best debt, and how to manage debts when a trust deed is not the right path. Trust Deed Scotland expects this to be a very popular hotline and one that should generate a lot of new business.
The new number will be advertised on the company website from the 12th September and all calls to this number will be free of charge.
