Debt Relief Order UK

DRO is the abbreviation for Debt Relief Order. It is a way to get the debts written off. This is only if the levels of debts are low and if one has only a few assets.

If a debtor qualifies for a DRO, a few of the financial institutions are willing to initiate action with their DRO teams. They apply to the Insolvency Service on the debtor's behalf.

As a part of the procedure followed, debt repayments and interests are frozen for 12 months. If the debtor’s financial position does not change during this time, all of the debts included are written off.

The financial organization, whose aid the debtor takes, must be approved to help the debtor apply for DRO if he is eligible.

Let us now consider How assets lay an influence over DRO:

DRO is essentially designed for debtors who have few assets. Valuation of assets is done in terms of how much money they would raise if sold in current condition, and not the value for which they were purchased.

Household items like furniture and bedding neither count as assets or tools are essential for a job. The total worth of assets cannot be more than £1,000 in order to qualify for a DRO. One can own a domestic vehicle worth up to £1,000 apart from these assets.
