Prioritise your debts…..

If you have multiple debts, it can be difficult to know which to pay off first – especially if you are receiving letters or calls, which can make things seem even more urgent. Some debts are more important than others because the consequence of not paying them can be more serious.

Priority debts include:

  • Your mortgage
  • Gas and electricity
  • Council tax
  • Court fines
  • TV licence

If you need help in reviewing and prioritising your debts, you should seek independent advice.
