What is a Debt Reconciliation Loan?
Life can throw you curveballs. Losing a job, changed relationship status or unexpected health issues may mean you can no longer keep up with your loans. Taking our a personal loan or applying for another credit card may seem like the answer, but long term the additional debt may not be manageable.
This is where a debt reconciliation loan comes in.
Refinancing to a debt consolidation loan allows you to combine your debts into one. Your loans – credit card and personal – are rolled together and paid under your mortgage. You have one, much more manageable monthly repayment, charged at your home loan interest rate, which could be significantly lower than the interest rate on your credit card or personal loan.
What You Need to Know
Before entering into a debt reconciliation loan, it is important to ensure the loan is structured correctly by a licensed mortgage broker. A poorly structured loan could turn short-term debts into long-term debts and see you paying even more in interest over the life of the loan.
When Should I Consider Switching?
Things change, sometimes unexpectedly. A mortgage that suited you when you first entered the housing market may no longer fit your lifestyle.
Your bank has increased your interest rate to a point that makes monthly repayments no longer manageable.
Credit card bills taking over your finances? By rolling together all your loans into one, you could save thousands of dollars in interest.
You entered the housing market using a sub-prime mortgage, but now your circumstances have changed and you’re eligible for a superior mortgage.
You’re looking to access some of your equity – maybe to buy a new car, do the long-awaited renovation on your home or take a family holiday.
Between personal loans and credit cards, you’re making multiple monthly repayments to too many different lenders and paying high interest rates.
