Does a Debt Management Program Place a Lien on My Property? – Jan

Does a Debt Management Program Place a Lien on My Property? – Jan

“Dear Steve,

My ex and I are selling our home. I am currently in a Debt Management Program. Will my Debt Management be paid off before I get my share of the profit on the home. Is this considered a lien?

Jan”

Dear Jan,

A debt management program is a voluntary credit counseling program and does not create a lien against any property. There is nothing I can think of that will inform your creditors of your windfall. You should be able to sell your home without any concern of being in a debt management program.

    i want out of my debtwae management program and have succesfuly been on the program for 33 mons and am going off as of today Do you know is there anything stating that my interest rates will go up to where they were before i defaulted ,or since i am current now for 33 months i was told by capital one my interest rate will go back to where it was BEFORE i defaulted ? this will drastically drop my payments which i am need of doing and i was told by creditors they can’y do anything for me until i am off the debtwave. Have you heard of creditors helping people after they got off a program?
