[COLOR=black]I am the co signer on my niece's student loan. Can I get her to sign a promissory note that she agrees to pay me back for any amounts I contribute to the loan. She has already missed some payments that I paid to keep the loan in good standings. At some point I???m figuring she will run into problems again. As I am preparing myself to ultimately assume the debt, could I pay off the loan after I have her sign an agreement that the debt now is payable to me as a binding legal agreement? And this making it possible for me to go after her in the future if she does not pay be back?[/COLOR]
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
