The pandemic has brought about an extraordinary amount of financial distress for millions of people.
Many are turning to family and friends for help. People who have the means to help out are generally happy to do so, but problems arise when repayment agreements are defaulted, which can cause family bust ups and relationships to break down.
Anybody considering lending money to a friend or family member is advised to get something in writing and set up an affordable and realistic repayment plan. Having the arrangement in writing can help should it ever come to a small claims court for repayment.
By far the best way for anybody in financial difficulty is to seek help either from a debt charity or an insolvency practitioner who will not charge for an initial meeting.
