Personal debt consolidation

If you have outstanding debts with high interest payments every month, you may find yourself paying exorbitant monthly payments without making a considerable impact on your principal balance. At Morgan & Partners Inc., we help individuals in the Barrie, Ontario region regain financial stability with low-interest personal debt consolidation solutions.

There are, however, some circumstances where personal debt consolidation may not be an option. If you find yourself rejected for a personal debt consolidation loan, here are some reasons why and what you can do about it:

  • If you’re not making enough income per month to cover your basic living expenses, it is unlikely that that you will get approved for a personal debt consolidation loan.
  • Consider the fact that personal debt consolidation loans are usually set at a higher monthly rate than most credit cards in order to expedite the payment, which will make it more challenging to stick with a repayment plan if you’re already in a crunch.
  • Also, most financial institutions usually only allow you to borrow up to 40% of your annual income, which means that if you’re not making enough to cover your debt, you’ll probably be rejected.
  • When a financial institution is considering your application for a personal debt consolidation loan, they look at your assets to determine if you are a viable candidate that can pay back your loan.
  • If you have no assets to show as collateral, we recommend getting a co-signer for your loan. They will look at the financial standing of your co-signer to determine if you qualify. However, your co-signer will become 100% responsible for paying off your loans if you are unable to meet your payments.
