When to Utilize Debt Consolidation

debt consolidationIf you find yourself facing a number of unsecured loans that are being paid back at an uncomfortably high interest rate, then you should understand when to utilize a debt consolidation loan. Loosely defined, debt consolidation is when a loan is taken out through a company in order to pay off multiple smaller loans with high interest rates that an individual may have accrued, in order to pay off the new loan at a more comfortable pace. This is an ideal situation for an individual that may be in danger of having to file bankruptcy; as well, often your existing creditors/lenders will sympathize with this situation and offer a settlement in order to assist you in successfully paying off all of their loans. Generally speaking, if the new loan is an unsecured loan than it will typically only be permitted if you earn sufficient income to service the loan, this is proven with bank stubs as well as your bank statements. If you own a home, a second mortgage loan is another option, which would likely include a reduced interest rate because the loan would be secured against your home, acting as collateral. A consolidation loan is certainly not considered an end-all to those will debt repayment issues, but it can mean the difference between spending a great deal in interest charges and spending only what is necessary in repaying the amount of the loans.

It is also worth noting that with debt consolidation loans, depending on the length of the loan, you could end up paying significant interest (borrowing costs) over the long run. This is only considered an appropriate option if it is highly unlikely that you will be able to make your monthly payments without consolidating in the first place. If you are considering bankruptcy or credit counselling, definitely consider the impact on your credit first, if your income is sufficient, you may be eligible for a flexible debt consolidation loan, one that you could pay back reasonably over time, something that you can afford, fits your budget, and ultimately allows you to build your credit back up.

If you have a significant amount of debt accruing, we would certainly advise you to look at a debt consolidation loan as a means of easing the burden of your debt and financial situation.
