What happens if you can’t pay your personal loan
Although it depends on the contract you have with your lender, it is very likely that if you do not pay your loan installment date it will be forced to seize you.
What is an embargo?
A lien implies that the lender will take possession or retain what you put as collateral; It can be your car, your home, bank account, or any asset you own. It all depends on the loan amount.
For this reason, Robin always advises you to have a “plan B”. If this is the case you cannot pay a month, be very clear what you have to do.
For example, immediately notify your lender to evaluate the possibility of rescheduling or refinancing the debt.
Normally the payment out of date will be marked in the conditions of your loan with penalties and default interest, which can be significant. If you pay late or cannot pay a month, the cost (real money you will have to pay back) of your loan will skyrocket.
Another option may be the purchase of debt by other financial entities. This is usual when seeking to reunify several debts into a single new loan.
Remember that Robin is at your disposal to help you. Plan, meet your payments, and your financial situation will improve.
