Defaults and Bad Debts

Save money and finance for banking conceptAs a lender on rebuildingsociety.com, you are lending to UK-based small- and medium-sized businesses. SMEs are vulnerable to many influences that can put a strain on their business and affect their ability to meet financial obligations, such as repaying a loan.

No matter how seasoned a lender, you are or what your level of professional experience is, you are likely to incur a default within your portfolio at some point in time. If you are new to P2P lending, your first default is likely to come as a shock, and may tarnish your impression of P2P lending. However, you shouldn’t panic, as defaults are not unexpected and can be managed.

We’ve put together this blog to help you understand more about what a default is, why it may occur, how you can manage your risks, and how we work to protect you so that when a default does occur, you know what to expect.

Voluntary Arrangements

rebsoc-footerAs part of our service to our lenders, we undertake recovery action and legal enforcement on defaulted loan accounts. This is done on your behalf with the intention of recovering your funds. At certain times during this recovery process, we endeavour to give lenders a role to shape our recovery action and have their say in the acceptance or rejection of any repayment offers we may receive.

Such occasions include the submission of an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) or Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA). This blog post will look a little closer at both instruments and discuss what lenders may want to look for in assessing whether those arrangements may be in their interests.
