Case study: what is BrokerBase?
Designed to quickly confirm whether debt mediation with United Debt Assist can help turn a No into a Yes, BrokerBase could help you to write and convert more loans.
United Debt Assist consists of a team of professional debt mediators, here to help customers experiencing financial difficulty to achieve reduced settlements with their creditors.
If you’re working with clients who may be suitable for debt mediation, UDA have launched BrokerBase – an easy to use tool that instantly assesses whether UDA can negotiate on your client’s debt.
Having recently reduced a staggering debt load by over $100k for a couple in their 50’s, UDA work with their referrers to assist clients and achieve exceptional customer outcomes.
In this case, the couple had accumulated a considerable debt load with multiple creditors mainly due to a work injury in the husband’s past. They were facing the prospect of losing their house and in addition to this, their daughter had recently been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. They began helping pay for her medical treatment and took time off work to care for her, turning to credit cards and loans to get by. On top of everything, they then contributed towards her wedding.
Once things settled down, the husband resumed his carpentry business and the wife went back to working at the supermarket, but they still had multiple debts which they were unable to manage. They were turned away by two brokers who weren’t sure where to place them due to their level of debt.
Their third and final broker working with Bluestone ran the numbers through UDA’s newly-launched Broker Base.
The large debt load, lack of equity and considerably unfortunate life event qualified for UDA to commence mediation with the client’s creditors.
Prior to mediation, the clients had amassed over $250k of unsecured debt across various credit cards, car loans and a business overdraft. After mediation, over $100k had been reduced from the debt load, lowering the loan amount, in turn reducing the loan to value ratio, interest rate and monthly repayments.
Debt mediation is a tool for brokers to write and convert more loans.
With Australia’s rising cost of living and the second highest household debt-to-income ratios, the demand for reputable mediators who can produce strong results has never been more vital.
