If you’ve over-committed yourself with a purchase or service agreement, then you certainly won’t be alone! So, you may be asking, “Can I get out of this agreement?” At Askews, we can advise you on your rights to recite (get out of) an agreement, and what you may have to pay as a result.

We can also help you with any consumer related query for example:

  • Second hand goods guarantees
  • Mail order or catalogue transactions
  • Problems Paying Debts

Owing money is a fact of modern life and for the most part it’s not a problem. However, from time to time, debt can mount up and if you don’t do something about it, it can lead to serious problems perhaps even losing your home or car, or having a black mark against your credit rating for the future.

At Askews, we are experienced in helping clients to resolve problems with debts and loans of all types, for example:

  • Rent or mortgage arrears
  • Council Tax arrears
  • Hire purchase agreements
  • Gas, electricity and telephone bills
  • Loans and credit cards

There are a number of ways we can help. Often, we’re able to negotiate to re-adjust the payments you make to something you can afford. We can liaise with your lenders on your behalf and give you the best chance of keeping hold of your assets. In all cases, we will make sure you only pay what you owe.
