Legal notice: Debt Review is a solution provided by the National Credit Act no 34 of 2005. The process is therefore regulated by the National Credit Regulator and Governed by the National Credit Act. In terms of the National Credit Act every debt counsellor offering debt review services must be registered with the National Credit Regulator. Because we at National Credit Restructuring believe that good and reputable service is of utmost importance, especially when it comes to your debt, we ensure that all the debt counsellors we work with are registered with the required legal bodies. We will never supply detail of any consumer to a debt counsellor that are not registered in terms of the National Credit Act.
