    Debt relief companies in Portland help people pay back unsecured debts, which includes credit card debt and personal loans that do not have collateral attached. Some debt consolidation companies may assist with secured debts, as well.

    Should I work with a debt relief company in Portland?

    Debt relief companies may be able to reduce the amount of debt you owe through debt settlement or turn multiple debts into a single, manageable monthly payment with debt consolidation.

    • Debt consolidation: Debt consolidation works by using a debt consolidation loan to pay off your existing debts with one lump-sum payment. This streamlines the payment process, and the new loan typically has a lower interest rate, which saves money over time.
    • Debt settlement: Debt settlement is when a company negotiates with your creditors to lower the amount you owe, which often allows you to settle the debt for far less than the original sum. During the negotiation process, you place a monthly payment into an account that is used to save money to be offered as lump-sum payments in negotiations.

    Debt relief may take multiple years, and debt settlement can hurt your credit score. Debt relief is typically a better alternative than bankruptcy, however. If you’re interested in debt relief in Portland, your first step is to set up a consultation with a debt relief company to learn if you qualify and what type of debt relief works best for your situation.

    How to choose a debt relief company in Portland, OR

    When choosing a debt relief company in Portland, look for experience, positive client reviews and the ability to offer various debt relief solutions, including debt settlement and debt consolidation.

    Most debt relief companies offer free, confidential consultations to analyze your financial situation and discuss possible strategies. Some companies may charge for this service — in Oregon, the maximum amount a company can charge for a consultation is $50. Debt settlement companies in Oregon can charge a maximum of 7.5% of the difference between the principal debt amount and the negotiated amount on settled debt.

    Before committing to working with a debt relief company, the business should give you a written agreement that lists the provided services, all your debts and all possible fees the company can charge. If a business doesn’t offer you an agreement, treat it as a red flag that it may be attempting to scam you.

    Make sure the debt settlement or debt consolidation business is registered with the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation (DFR). All companies in the state that help people with debt must register. You can search the DFR’s website for registered debt relief companies in Oregon using the name, license number or location.

    Avoid any company that charges fees before it settles your debts, promises an exact percentage of debt reduction or guarantees it can make your debt disappear. The Federal Trade Commission recommends checking for consumer issues reported to the Oregon Department of Justice before selecting a debt relief company.
