This is the place to ask questions if you are already in a DMP
By OK Nearly There
Hi Ive been in my DMP for 6 years and paid £ 68,000 back with 31,000 outstanding. Ive just had a re mortgage accepted and its going through hopefully in the next few weeks. How much do companies normally accept as a settlement.
Thank you

Hi there OK Nearly There and welcome to the forum :)

Given you have been in your DMP for a while your creditors will almost certainly accept 50% of the outstanding balance to settle the remaining debt. However they might accept less. My suggestion is to offer 30% initially and see what they say. Then you can then always up the offer if need be. The trick is be coy about where the money is coming from. I recommend that you say it is from a family member. That way of a creditor rejects your first offer you can always say you went back to the familiy member and they were able to offer a little more.
