Understanding how Debt Consolidation works
Debt consolidation is the process of combining your existing debts into a single loan. This can be done by applying for a new loan and using the funds to repay and close other financial accounts (e.g. credit cards, credit agreements, loans etc) if you choose to. The process of consolidating debt means that you are charged one interest rate, have one repayment each month and hopefully have more disposable income.
Are there any risks?
If you apply for any credit product this will show on your credit file as an application.
This could affect your credit score, as it would if you applied for credit for any other purpose.
Your overall debt levels could increase if you take a consolidation loan and continue to use your credit products.
Consolidating your debt could reduce your monthly outgoings, leaving you with more disposable cash each month. Care should be taken when consolidating debt. It may increase your total amount payable, or the period, over which it is to be paid. If you are unsure of what to do, please seek independent financial advice.
Is consolidating my debt right for me?
As we don’t offer financial advice, we are unable to advise you if debt consolidation is the right thing for you. However, we can explain the process and how it may or may not benefit you. If you feel you could benefit from financial advice, you may wish to speak to an independent financial adviser. Debt consolidation could help members who are juggling numerous repayments and would find it easier to manage a single repayment. Another benefit is that by consolidating debt, it could reduce the rate of interest you are currently being charged.
Here at No1 CopperPot, we pride ourselves on offering clear products. With our loans, everyone gets charged the advertised interest rate regardless of credit score, so you’ll be able to find out exactly what your repayments would be if accepted. You can do this by using our loan calculator before you apply. This can help to assist you when trying to work out if it would be a cheaper alternative.
