Debt consolidation loans – are they the answer to your financial woes?

by | Oct 29, 2020 | Personal Finance

What are debt consolidation loans? The word CONSOLIDATION effectively means the the action or process of combining a number of things into a single more effective or coherent whole.

It is for this reason many people seek one loan to cover all of their debt with one monthly payment – but how beneficial are these consolidation loans to those who are already over-indebted?

Here are a few important points to note regarding debt consolidation loans:

  • You are actually just paying your old debt with new debt.
  • They are very rarely cheaper (with regards to interest rates).
  • You will have to pay an initiation fee on the consolidation loan.
  • Your credit score will improve – but if you access more credit, whilst still having your large consolidated payment to make – the chances are good that you will be over-indebted.
  • If you are in arrears with your accounts, you will not be able to qualify for a consolidated loan. You need a clean credit record to apply for a consolidated loan.


What other options are available for consolidation of your debt repayments?

  • A consolidation loan is NOT your only option for your debt.
  • You can consolidate your debt repayment by opting for debt review.
  • You still only pay one amount at month end.
  • Your interest rates are lowered.
  • Your term is extended.
  • Whilst paying only one lower monthly installment, your assets are protected from repossession and you are shielded from the harassment by debt collectors and creditors.
