A Default notice is a formal letter issued to you by your creditor advising that you are in default of payment. Your creditor will usually send you a default notice after three to six missed payments. You are given at least fourteen days to pay. If ignored, your creditor may use a default notice as the first step towards legal action against you and could result in you receiving a CCJ which will affect your credit rating. A default notice will remain on your credit file for 6 years.
If you have received a default notice and are unable to continue to make payments or repay your arrears, the key is to act now before your debt problem worsens.
