Peter Temple, Burnaby Debt Consultant
Debt Help Burnaby
Being in debt is a very scary experience and has likely caused you many sleepless nights and stress within your family. Making the minimum payments each month is disheartening when you see that the amount owing is not going down due to interest being added back on again!
Your first step to get out of debt should be to research your options thoroughly and ignore the advertising hype from some of the less respectable companies out there making unrealistic promises.
Ignorance and fear stops many people from either taking any action to get out of debt or causes them to make a hasty decision which they regret later on. Make sure it is not you! Do Your Research.

Jason P, Surveyor
I was such stressful times until I met Peter Temple. He has helped me by talking with me and discussing which way I should proceed with my life. I would recommend 4 Pillars to anyone and thankful that I found them. We were shocked how simple it was to dramatically reduce our debt. I don't know where we would be without 4 Pillars.
Terry B, Security Officer
I would recommend 4 Pillars to anyone who needs help getting their finances in order. Peter Temple at 4 Pillars has been so helpful. He took time to explain what they are all about. He was able to answer all my questions, and if I needed help with the paper work, he was only a phone call away. Anytime I need to speak with him, he promptly returns my call. Either that day or the next. I highly recommend them to anyone who is having financial difficulties.
Kathy B, Store Manager
Peter Temple and 4 Pillars acted on our behalf as we confronted a large debt from multiple lenders, consisting of unsecured LOC's and CC debt. It was further complicated by our ownership of multiple rental properties, some with active partners. 4 Pillars worked closely with us every step of the way. Not only did they answer every question we posed to them, and there were some complicated issues, they clearly laid out the potential scenarios and helped us to choose the most appropriate path forward. As we were fully informed, we felt satisfied that we were in control of the process, and when we were finally introduced to an appropriate Trustee, we could not have been better prepared.

4 Pillar Reviews: Burnaby Clients We've Helped
Jim F contacted us for help with $140,000 in credit card debt, which he had accumulated due to an illness that stopped him from working for an extended period. The bills kept flowing in but the income had stopped. He had a wife and two children and his only option was to rely on credit to put food on the table.
Eventually he started working again but by this time the debts were so high that all he could afford was to make the minimum payments each month. The debts never reduced as he was only paying interest. Stress levels were rising and his family relationships and health were starting to suffer. He had to act and act quickly.
We met with Jim and discussed his situation, and within 4 weeks had a debt elimination plan in place. We were able to negotiate his debts down to $60,000 which was paid at $1000/month interest free over a period of 5 years. His cash flow has increased and he is now able to put money aside for a pension plan.
Jim had no idea that this could be done and in such a short time. Only after meeting us for a free consultation was he aware of his options and was able to take positive steps towards debt freedom.

How do I stop creditor calls?
It can be very stressful receiving numerous calls from each of your creditors demanding payments which you just can't afford. So what can you do to stop these calls while you are considering your options?
You can send out a letter stating that all future communication regarding your debts must be sent in writing. The creditors must comply with this instruction.
How much will it cost to pay off my debt?
When considering your options to pay off your debts you must calculate how much it will cost you in total to pay off all of your debt at the current interest rates.
How do I get a credit card when I have bad credit?
If you have poor credit you may find it difficult to get a new credit card as now a day you really need one for car parking, online purchases, etc.
You can apply for a secured credit card if your credit rating is low. With this type of card you pay a deposit of say $500 to the credit card company thus allowing you to spend up to $500 on the credit card. If you try and keep the balance on the card below 30% of the available credit and pay off the full balance at the end of each month you will start improving your credit rating.
Are you on a low income, unemployed, suffering from an illness, etc?
You could be entitled to additional benefits from the government!
