Debt Advisers Direct predicts June Interest Rate Rise – the final straw for some?

The widely speculated June interest rate rise to 5.75% - the first consecutive monthly increase in three years - would be a further blow for consumers still reeling from the May increase says financial solutions provider Debt Advisers Direct.

Borrowers who are already overstretched by monthly bills and repayments could find themselves faced with an extra £20 a month to pay on a mortgage of £100,000 - potentially adding to the growing number of people seeking debt advice.

With the number of home repossessions being sought rising to 33,715 in Q1 2007, Debt Advisers Direct expect more people to be actively seeking debt management and debt consolidation solutions for their unsecured debts in order to afford the mortgage payments on their property.

Offering a comprehensive range of financial solutions, Debt Advisers Direct is able to provide free, realistic debt advice and positive help to people from all walks of life and every type of financial circumstance. Their trained experts guide callers to the most appropriate solution – based on their situation – and can provide a complete service for debt consolidation, debt management and IVAs.

"The old fashioned view that there is a stigma attached to being in debt should not stop people seeking out a responsible solution to their problems," said a Debt Advisers Direct spokesperson. "There are many excellent solutions to financial difficulties and talking to an expert sooner rather than later could make all the difference: Getting trustworthy, knowledgeable advice is key to avoiding some of the pitfalls that many come across when trying to resolve debt problems alone."
