Debt Relief Orders (DRO) and catalogue debts

Been advised that a DRO would be my best option - but can't seem to find out anywhere if the catalogues would ask for any items not yet paid for, or on buy now pay later to be returned? I had to buy a fridge freezer on buy now pay later back in february and I bought a kindle back in June. I will obviously now have to include them on my DRO if I go through with it. Thanks in advance.

    Hello there.

    The catalogue firms wouldn't ask for any of the items back. Do be mindful that any items worth more than £300 could be regardes as an asset, which may prohibit your ability to have a DRO.

    Best wishes,
