Learn The Easy Way To Wipe Out Debt Effectively

Jul 24, 2008
When you have a number of high interest debts or credit arrangements such as credit cards and unsecured loans on which you are making repayments each month dealing with your accounts can become both stressful and frustrating. Having to deal with so many payments and creditors can understandably lead to missed or late repayments, just by the general confusion of who to pay and when. This in turn can add to your debt problems, affecting both your credit rating, credit score and your finances, not to mention your chances of getting future credit at good rates of interest. You may be hit with hefty fees and charges for late and missed payments, and whilst government intervention has led many lenders to reduce these they are still quite high. You could even find yourself facing court action for a CCJ if you start to fall behind or worse still default on repayments, so your debts could quickly get out of hand.

It is possible in some cases to wipe out debt and replace all of these debts with one lower interest rate loan. This offers a range of benefits. If you want to ease debt or credit management and reduce the amount that you are paying out each month you may really benefit from considering debt consolidation as a way to wipe out debt. This is where you take out a larger loan to pay off, and therefore effectively wipe out all of your smaller debts on which you pay a high interest, such as credit cards and store cards and smaller personal loans. If you take the time to compare the many different consolidation loans from the mass of lenders offering them you should be able to find one with a competitive rate of interest, and this means that you can enjoy better value for money on your borrowing. Currently loans are available at APRs of around 6.5% to 8% as opposed to credit cards at 15.9%.

When you use a consolidation loan you can very effectively wipe out debt problems, and make life far easier for yourself and your family, eliminating those tedious rows and stresses brought on when it is difficult to budget outgoings. Although you will actually still owe the same amount of money you will only have one debt and one creditor to deal with and of course a much more manageable interest rate and a repayment term to fit your pocket. This reduces the chances of missed and late repayments due to confusion with financial management and billing times, and can considerably reduce the amount of money that you have to pay out on your debts each month, thus leaving you with more disposable income to enjoy the good things in life with your family.

If you are a homeowner you can get a secured consolidation loan, and this could help to further reduce your debt problems. However you must think hard on this because you will secure the debt on your home, leaving you liable to repossession if you fall behind with repayments. You can spread your repayments over a much longer period, with a secured loan which means that you can keep your outgoings even further down whilst you wipe out debt. You will also be able to borrow more money with a secured consolidation loan, although this will be based on your equity levels and other factors, and can therefore borrow an adequate amount to cover repayment of all of your existing debts, but again remember it is secured so do not go overboard.

In order to effectively wipe out debt problems through debt consolidation you need to exercise willpower and determination, as you need to be careful that you do not run up your original debts again. As with all debt management methods wiping out debt will only work if you refuse to get caught again.

If you go out and spend again on your credit cards after consolidating them you will find yourself even worse problems than you were before with a higher level of debt to deal with and now possibly secured and putting your home at risk. Wipe out your debt by all means but then keep it that way.
