Debt Consolidation Loan

Handling a single loan can be challenging, let alone managing multiple loans alongside your daily expenses. It's a recipe for potential loan defaults. Instead of reaching that critical point, it's always advisable to react early to any potential payment problems that you may be experiencing.

Secured on property.

All of our debt consolidation loans are secured on property. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on a mortgage or any other debt secured on it.

Debt consolidation emerges as a potent solution, offering a streamlined approach to your debt, and, most importantly, a path toward financial liberation. This page aims to equip you with comprehensive knowledge, covering available options, essential considerations, associated risks, and more.

What is debt consolidation?

Debt consolidation involves obtaining a single loan to handle or settle various outstanding debts, such as credit card balances, personal loans, or Hire Purchase. These multiple debts are consolidated into a unified and more manageable payment.

The primary objective here is to reduce the amount of money leaving the household each month for credit payments. This could significantly improve lifestyle very quickly.

How debt consolidation works

Simply consolidate some or all of your loans into one overall loan and therefore have only 1 payment to manage. This may well increase the overall term of the existing credit and could very likely end up with the client having an increased total payback, resulting in more interest being paid. However, the main motivation should be to reduce monthly payments.

How to qualify for debt consolidation

Before proceeding with a debt consolidation loan, carefully assess its advantages and disadvantages. If you determine that it aligns with your financial goals, follow these steps to move forward:

Check your credit score

It is very easy now to monitor your credit score and we recommend doing this on as regular basis. While some lenders accommodate lower credit scores, resulting in higher borrowing costs, it's crucial to evaluate whether the potential monthly payment savings justifies the loan. Check your credit score through platforms or request a free annual report for insights into your credit standing.

List your debts and payments

Compile a detailed list of the debts you intend to consolidate, including the owed amounts, interest rates, and minimum monthly payments. Sum these figures to determine the loan size needed for consolidation. Calculate the total minimum payments to establish an affordable monthly repayment amount. Use a loan calculator to assess the necessary terms and interest rates for the loan to be effective.

Apply for the loan

After you make your short online enquiry, one of our advisers will arrange a telephone appointment with you in order to gather all your application information. Commonly requested documents include proof of income, proof of identity (driver’s license, passport), bank statements and proof of address (utility bills etc).

Advantages of debt consolidation loans

  • 5 year fixed rate 8.99%
  • Monthly payment - £1,155

  • Monthly saving on the debt consolidation £750

Original client scenario – they were paying nearly £2,000 per month in various debt payments and were struggling to manage their household budget. Their mortgage lender declined to help them due to the amount of debt, which meant the clients were in real danger of beginning to miss credit payments, which would have had an adverse effect on their credit profile.

Solution – 2nd Charge debt consolidation loan (see details above) – ultimately saving the clients over £750 per month.


FAQs about debt consolidation

Can I consolidate all types of debts?
