troubled debt restructuring
Troubled debt restructuring can be defined as any debt restructuring where the creditor agrees to restructure the debt that is due for a specified period of time. The creditor may agree to a debt reduction in full or may ask for partial payments in an attempt at reducing the amount of debt. It is rare that a creditor will agree to restructure all of the debt owed. Typically, they would consolidate the loans that are into secured debt obligations and offer a lower interest rate for the remainder of the loans. In order for a troubled debt restructuring to work there are certain conditions that must be met. There must be an impending lawsuit or claim, a pending default judgment, the possibility of a bankruptcy, and the inability of the debtor to pay the amounts currently owed. The creditor must be willing to compromise in order for both parties to benefit. In addition, the creditor must be able to eliminate the current collection calls on the debtor’s account. The creditor also needs to be assured that the reduced payment will not have a negative impact on their credit rating. There should be no legal fees involved.

There are several companies that specialize in troubled debt restructuring negotiations. A reputable company will give the creditor and debtor a free consultation prior to having any negotiations take place. During the consult, the firm will review the current statements and collections reports on the account. They will determine if the changes will benefit the company. If the creditor agrees to the changes, the firm will submit its proposals. If approved, the creditor will issue a Call Report showing the following: the current balance owed, the current monthly payment amount, the new, anticipated dates for payment, and the names of the collector and the account representative. This document provides a detailed account of the negotiation and offers advice on how to resolve the problem. When for economic or legal reasons related to the debtor’s financial difficulty, the firm will submit a letter to the creditors. This letter includes the proposed new agreement. When the creditor agrees to the new terms, they will send a Cease and Desist order to the debtor. This stops collections efforts until the new agreement is in writing and approved by a judge.
The accounting records and the other financial information provided by the finance company for any troubled debt restructuring negotiations may become part of a lawsuit. In some cases, the finance company is required to submit accurate records or a certified statement of accounts. In other situations, the creditor may not be required to provide accurate records. The finance company is also responsible for correcting inaccurate information or determining whether an account has been misspelled or any other incorrect information. Many state laws mandate that the finance company to comply with these requirements. In addition, the creditor must notify the debtor within twenty-four hours of an account being misspelled. In many cases, the finance company will have several collections agencies on its books. When the loan agreement is executed, they become liable for producing the outstanding debts that are owed by the debtor. If the creditor cannot produce the cash flow difficulties, the court may enter a default judgment against the debtor. Once a default judgment has been entered, the debtor is generally locked into a cash flow difficulty until the payment issues are resolved.
