Most people incur debt throughout their lifetime. Lending and borrowing are part and parcel of the modern economy – it’s only when you can’t pay back your debts that they become a problem.
There are many different types of debt, and listed here are some of the most common.
Manageable debts that can comfortably pay back over an agreed period are often a necessary part of life. But when debts become unmanageable, they becomes a problem. There are many ways debts can suddenly become unmanageable:-
- Cut in hours
- Illness, especially for the self-employed
- Unexpected costs such as unexpected home repairs
