Pros and Cons of Filing for a Consumer Proposal

A consumer proposal is a negotiated debt settlement that allows debtors to avoid bankruptcy, keep their assets, has low monthly payments, and has a relatively lesser impact on their credit rating, compared to bankruptcy. 

However, it’s not without its pitfalls. One example is the inability to file for another proposal if 3 payments are missed, it’s publicly reported, and it negatively impacts your credit score for approximately 6-7 years, albeit not as severely as it does in the case of a bankruptcy filing. Most importantly, your creditor may not accept your proposal. Furthermore, it may take longer to complete a consumer proposal than it takes for bankruptcy. This is because the monthly payments are low and hence may spread over a long period.
