Borrowing money

If you need borrow money, or someone wants you to be a guarantor or co-borrower, you could end up with legal problems over money.

If you don’t pay your debts on time, you may end up with a credit report that will make it hard to borrow money in the future. You may need to take action early to avoid being hassled about repaying money.

If you used a car, house, or other property to secure the loan or guarantee, the lender might be able to sell it to have the money repaid.
