Canada Debt Consolidation

One of the concepts that cause a lot of uncertainty for Canadians is Debt Consolidation. You’ll know more about debt consolidation after reading this simple guide than the majority of Canadians:

  • What is a debt consolidation loan and how does it work?
  • What is a debt consolidation program?
  • Is a debt consolidation loan a wise move?
  • Advantages and disadvantages of debt consolidation loan
  • What are the options for a debt consolidation loan?
  • What caused the rejection of my debt consolidation loan?

What is a debt consolidation loan and how does it work?

Debt consolidation is the process of consolidating two or more debts into one. Some people opt for a home equity loan, debt consolidation loan, or credit card balance transfer, although these frequently need excellent credit or high income. Some may even make your financial situation worse.

The Office of Consumer Affairs (OCA) of the Government of Canada states that a debt consolidation loan enables you to pay off all of your creditors at once and is often obtained from a bank. 

You will only have to make one monthly payment as a result, frequently at a lower interest rate than you are currently paying. This enables you to pay off your loan more quickly and save money on interest fees.

Debt Consolidation Program

What is a Debt Consolidation Program?

A non-profit credit counseling organization and your creditors come to terms with a Debt Consolidation Program (DCP). If you work with a reputable, non-profit credit counseling organization, a licensed credit counselor will speak with your creditors on your behalf and try to reduce the interest rate on all of your unsecured loans while also consolidating them into a single, more manageable monthly payment. A Debt Consolidation Program is one solution that helps Canadians get out of debt.

Is a debt consolidation loan a wise move?

You can intentionally decide to consolidate your debt for several reasons. First off, debt consolidation can assist in preventing missed payments, harm to your credit score, and higher interest rates if you have several high-balance credit accounts and find it challenging to make payments on time. If you’re in this situation, you might also want to consider automating your monthly payments because it’s a quick and easy way to reduce your worry and expenses.

In general, more Canadians are turning to strategies like debt consolidation and consumer recommendations rather than filing for bankruptcy to get out of significant debt problems. Thousands of Canadians use debt consolidation to lower their debt each year

Advantages and disadvantages of debt consolidation loan

The pros of debt consolidation

Debt consolidation loans are available from credit unions and large Canadian banks like BMO, CIBC, RBC, TD, and Scotiabank. Here are some advantages to consider while assessing the benefits and drawbacks of debt consolidation with a loan:

  • Single Monthly Payment. The stress of remembering to pay many bills with due dates is lessened by making a single monthly payment.
  • An interest rate reduction. While this is often accurate, you should always conduct your research to make sure it is lower than the average interest rate on your obligations.
  • Debt can be paid off more quickly. As a result of paying more on the principal while the interest rate is lower, you can pay off your debt more quickly.
  • No fees are charged. When taking out a debt consolidation loan, there are ordinarily no additional fees.

The cons of debt consolidation

Debt consolidation loans can be challenging to receive, and if you don’t have good money management and monthly budgeting abilities, they might even make your debt worse.

  • They frequently demand security. Top-tier lenders would probably reject your application for a consolidation loan if you don’t have any assets, do not own property, or can’t find a co-signer.
  • You require an acceptable credit score. Reputable businesses won’t approve you without a credit check. You’ll probably be refused or charged higher interest rates if your credit score is low.
  • Potentially high-interest rates. Interest rates for high-risk borrowers can range from 14% to over 30% with second-tier lenders, which might be detrimental rather than beneficial.
  • They might make you incur more debt. By using the accounts they’ve paid off while also needing to repay, many people accumulate further debt.

What are the options for a debt consolidation loan?

Having to take on more debt to pay off your current debt doesn’t appeal to you? Or was your request for a debt consolidation loan turned down? Here are the options for a debt consolidation loan:

  • Credit line for home equity. Using a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) properly can be a beneficial tool if you can secure a loan using these “second mortgages” and the equity you have built in your property.
  • Transfers of credit card balances. Balances from many credit cards can be combined into one card with a cheaper interest rate. The disadvantage of credit card debt transfers must be understood.
  • Credit lines. You might be able to obtain a line of credit from your bank using collateral and use it as a form of debt consolidation solution.
  • Debt consolidation program. The final option for consolidating debt? Joining a debt consolidation program, often known as a credit counseling program or DCP. In that the DCP provider will combine your various balances into a distinct lending account with its interest rate, DCPs are comparable to debt consolidation loans from banks or other private lenders in this aspect.

What caused the rejection of my debt consolidation loan?

If your application for a debt consolidation loan was denied, it signifies that potential lenders had doubts about your ability to return the money you borrowed.

Consider the situation from the perspective of a lender. What are the possibilities that you will return the money? You might be a fantastic softball player at church or a good neighbor, but how well do you handle money? What does the ratio of your debt to income look like? What is your credit rating?

Recognize the reasons behind why those figures are working against you and how to make them on your side. Here are some things to consider:

  • Low income. The figure that might be most important is income. A creditor can question why they should grant you another loan if your income is insufficient to cover your current obligations.
  • Too much debt. You will require more money to borrow the more debt you have. A $5,000 loan can be granted far more easily than a $50,000 loan. Your income will be taken into consideration once more in the form of a debt-to-income ratio (DTI). Your DTI should be around 36%, which indicates that only approximately a third of your monthly income is going toward debt repayment.
  • Bad credit score. A credit score serves as a risk indicator. It provides information to the lender about your credit usage, whether you have been paying bills on time, and your probability of repaying a loan. Creditors use this figure to assess your level of financial responsibility, so if you’re having trouble paying off debt, particularly credit card debt, there may be a problem.

I would just like to thank Suma for really making feel comfortable throughout this entire process. Everyone tells you to watch out for gimmicks, quick fixes, and everything else that comes with Debt. Ive had other companies who had made promises and under delivered. However Suma and her team are quick to provide the right answers and guide everyone in a way towards better credit. She has made it seamless with great communication and availability. I have personally referred her to several of my closest friends and i would recommend her to anyone else looking for consolidation.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Debt Consolidation is a negotiated debt settlement offer made between you and your creditors with the help of a Debt Relief Agency in Ontario. Some key benefits of Debt Consolidation are interest-free program, no upfront fee required, combined monthly payment into one affordable amount, no lawsuits, and many more.

Yes, your assets are safe from creditors. A licensed debt relief agency in Ontario will help you come up with an offer to your creditors that will make sure your assets will be out of the paper.

No, in fact, this is one of the great advantages of a Debt Consolidation Program. All wage garnishment will stop from the day you filed the proposal.

The effect on your credit score is not going to be severe. Your credit score will most probably go to R7 Rating and will remain in your credit report for another 3 years after you completed the program. This means that it will not be permanent and you will still be able to rebuild your credit score.

 

This varies depending on the proposal you will be discussing with the help of a certified debt relief agency. It is also worth noting that debt consolidation cannot exceed more than 5 years.

If a debt is shared, you need to file a joint debt consolidation offer to your creditors. However, in most cases, in which the debts are individually incurred will have no impact on your spouse.

After three missed payments, your debt arrangement with creditors will be broken and you will end up getting chased again for the original debt amount plus interest.

A debt consolidation offer can be paid off earlier if you can. In this way, you receive your “Certificate of Completion” sooner and you can immediately start rebuilding your credit score.

Let’s Just Put It Simple....... Not All Hero's Wear Caps........I spoke with Suma over a fairly lengthy period of time because of my busy schedule and lack of free time on my part, and she was not only extremely patient and understanding, but also beyond helpful And informative. Any question I had and no matter how many times she had to explain it to me she took her time to make sure I completely understood every single step and process before she moved on to the next thing. I have been so stressed out and worked up about my debt and trying to figure out how to fix it all since I know I will not be returning to work at all in the future because of medical issues and being 26 with that realization makes things just that more stressful but Suma made everything so easy and my payments are $100 a month for less then 5 years with no interest or penalties for early pay off. I’m so glad that I didn’t settle with some other place that was asking for $350 + a month for 7-12 years and paying off early would cost you more.
