What debts are the most important?

Read time: 1 min

The debts that you need to deal with first are your mortgage/rent payments, your rates or fuel bills such as gas and electricity. These are known as priority debts and if you don't keep up the payments on these, you could lose your home, be sent to prison or be disconnected. If you find that you cannot keep up with these types of payments then seek help as soon as possible.
