According to several studies, close to 90% of the population in Israel are expected to fall into debt in their lifetime.
It is worth emphasizing that people from the entire spectrum of the population fall into debt, including company owners, CEOs, lawyers, etc.
The reason for this is clear. The reality of modern life surpasses a consumerist lifestyle that encourages excessive use of credit and reduces the ability of Israeli households to save money in the long term The long. This, combined with the rising cost of living, which makes it difficult for many families to make ends meet.
Creditors have a number of tools they can use to deal with situations where the debtor is on the verge of insolvency. If the creditors turn to the court or to enforcement, they generate a number of Severe sanctions imposed on the debtor, including the seizure of assets, seizure of a bank account, a ban on the performance of operations in the bank and even the issuance of an order preventing departure from the country.
Debt settlement - a negotiation that ends in a compromise and a return to normalcy
in light of the understanding that the rehabilitation of debtors is a necessary step for the existence of a functioning economy, there are alternative arrangements that allow debtors to avoid falling into insolvency.
The most important tool is called debt settlement.
In the past, there was an arrangement called debt consolidation, in which all debts were consolidated and the debtors paid a uniform monthly payment to a third party, who handled their debts in exchange for brokerage fees.
However, the Insolvency Law reduced the possibility of debt consolidation, and today the most effective way to manage debt repayments without falling into insolvency is debt settlement.
As part of the debt settlement, the debtor and the creditors conduct negotiations that eventually reach a compromise, in which they decide on a reduced amount that the debtor will pay to his creditors, under more convenient and flexible payment terms.
The reason for this lies in the fact that debtors who have accumulated huge debts will never be able to pay them off, and their financial rehabilitation requires reaching some sort of compromise.
Debt settlement is intended both for private individuals and for companies and corporations that have found themselves in large-scale financial distress.
The arrangement allows them to renegotiate the various conditions for repaying their debts.
In simple words, debt settlement allows debtors to improve their financial situation and return to their daily routine.
In light of the financial and legal complexity of the issue, a debt settlement is arranged through the mediation of a qualified lawyer who will help the debtor create an agreement that is in line with his economic interests.
In the event that the creditors oppose the settlement, it is possible to go to court and force the consent of the creditors who refused the agreement.
