Consolidation of existing debt burden is a profitable idea to save money and get rid of the mounting interest burden. As the number of people in the debt trap is increasing day by day, financial institutions and lenders are coming with expert loan management schemes. These plans manage the debt burden effectively and give relief to the debt trapped borrower.

Free advice to handle the debt burden effectively is offered by various financial agencies. The number of such agencies is increasing in the UK. Financial experts hired by these agencies offer valuable advice to manage the mounting debt burden and show the way to come out of the debt trap.

Debt management programs comprise of some simple economic activities. Assessment of your financial situation is carried out by financial experts. For this, the management agencies count the borrower's regular income and expenditure, loan amount and who the borrower owe money and other relevant information about borrower's personal circumstances.

Then, by collating this information into a Financial Statement, the agency determines how much the borrower can realistically afford to offer each of the creditors. The creditors are approached and asked to accept the reduced payments. In most cases creditors are happy to agree the plans offered by the agencies because they know, from experience, that such plans are realistic and sustainable.

After adopting effective debt management options for consolidation of loans, you make a single monthly payment. Every penny of your monthly payment makes your debt burdens less. Throughout the duration of this effective loan plan, you will have an assigned case officer. You can take his expert advice when you experience any difficulties during the arrangement period. Your loan plan is reviewed at regular intervals to ensure that you are benefited and there is a positive trend in your circumstances. The plan continues until your debts are cleared or until you wish to voluntarily end the arrangement.

Debt management programs are offered by the financial agencies without any cost. Generally these schemes only deal with unsecured debts. This means secured debt, secured car finance, Hire Purchase, conditional sales and leases are excluded from the option list and are need to be paid as usual. There are certain circumstances which are mandatory to avail the free services of these agencies. These are, the borrower cannot meet your current contracted credit repayments. The borrower should be capable to repay one minimum amount without any delay or default within the assigned period and the total debt burden should be above a limit.
