Why To Get A Secured Debt Consolidation Loan

May 12, 2008
If you find yourself in financial crisis and have no clue where to get help from then don't worry. A debt consolidation loan is what you should be looking for. Companies who specialize in consolidation of dues offer them.

What is a debt consolidation loan? It is the amount taken to pay off all other dues. You can also say that this program is basically a debt repayment program.

Here you add all the amounts pending to be paid and contact a Debt Consolidation Company to make payments on your behalf to the creditors. They act as a middleman between you and the lenders. The company will negotiate on your behalf with them and will arrive at a monthly amount that they will receive on your behalf, which is agreed by both the parties.

The amount decided would of course be lesser than what you would have had to pay if you were paying directly and at a much lesser interest rate.

A monthly cheque is given to the company and they will then pay the creditors from this amount. In this way you have less trouble. You don't have to deal with the creditors directly nor will the creditors contact you. If they have any issues they will contact the company for it.

This loan will run for a number of years. So this means that you will take some time to attain financial freedom but the monthly amount that you pay will be very less and you will have fewer burdens. Also, the chances of having a negative effect on your credit rating are less.

A secured loan is taken against the security provided. These securities can be your home, gold, bonds, car etc. Mortgage is very common example of this. The lender has less monetary risk as he has the possession of the assets and so offers to lend at a much lower interest rate.

There are certain benefits that the borrower tends to enjoy if he is borrowing through secured option. While there are less benefits when you opt for unsecured one.

The borrower gets to borrow at a much low interest rate. It is also much easy to obtain a secured one because of assets as they can be transferred quickly to the lender. It also reduces outbound payments. The concept of bringing all the dues together and making them one is easy to handle and understand. The borrower pays only one monthly installment. It decreases the monthly bills and also helps you to get drawn-out repayment terms.

However, you should remember that the loan money would depend on the collateral placed and the repayment term will be somewhere between 15 to 20 years which will vary from one organization to another.

You should always contact a professional Debt Services Company in such situations. As some companies will offer counseling and help you to prepare a financial plan and budget. You will gain financial knowledge from counseling and also you will know how to avoid a financial trap again.
