Debt Consolidation Loans - Meant for a New Debt Free Life

By: Rick Russel

When you are neck deep in debts or even if the debts are smaller, better pay them off immediately. Or, apart from stressing your limited finances, you may also be in a crisis soon. Well, one proven way to get rid of debt is to pay it through a new loan. Such a loan is called debt consolidation loan, meant especially for first clearing old debts and then reducing burden of the loan itself.

Debt consolidation loans immediately pay off your old debts. This implies that after clearing the debts, all you are required to do is to make lower monthly payments towards the new loan. Or the lender will pay off your debts and then you will make low monthly payments to the lender. One can say that though the old debts are no longer against your name, but still the debt amount has shifted to the new loan. So your all debts are thus in fact merged under low monthly payments to the debt consolidation loan lender. You are thus no longer worried about creditors. But the most beneficial advantage is that you get rid of higher interest rate debts immediately and replace them with the new loan of lower interest rate. You thus save lots of money on payments towards interest.

To pay off greater debts, secured debt consolidation loans are ideal as you can borrow as greater an amount as is the value of property that is required to be pledged as collateral of the loan. Interest rate on the loan is lower which allows for fruitfully replacing higher rate debts. Also, you can repay the secured loan for debt consolidation in 5 to 30 years as is your repaying convenience.

For smaller debts, unsecured debt consolidation loans should be preferred. These loans are fully risk free with the lender approving it without taking collateral. Interest rate is bit higher but you can still locate a suitable deal by comparing lenders. It is short term loan with 5 to 15 years of repaying duration.

If you failed to repay debts in time or have payment defaults, arrears, CCJs and IVAs in your name, still for a bad credit borrower like you secured or unsecured debt consolidation loans are available if you can prove your repaying ability. Pay off the loan in time so that your credit score improves sufficiently.
