Partial Settlement

Plain and simple, a Partial Settlement is settling a debt for less than the amount owed.

For example, agreeing with a creditor to settle a debt at £2000 when £10,000 is owed.

Payday Loan

Payday loans are very controversial short term, high interest loans that are usually expected to be paid back the next time the borrower receives their wage. They are also unsecured. Try and avoid them if you can.

Payment Holiday

A Payment Holiday is when a lender or creditor agrees for you to pause making payments towards your debt for a set period of time.

Personal Loan

Personal Loans are loans taken out by an individual or individuals (I.e. the consumer). This type of debt is unsecured as they are not secured to an asset such as a property or vehicle.
