Have you been struggling to find personal debt consolidation help and advice in Scotland?
- Do you live in Scotland and need to find professional, trustworthy and reliable, personal debt consolidation help or advice?
- Are you struggling to find a way to get out of debt?
Have you been told that the law in Scotland and solutions available to solve debt problems in Scotland differ to those available in England and throughout the rest of the UK?
If you live in Scotland and need to clear personal debt problems, there are a few widely recognised, and government approved debt solutions available to help you manage and more importantly clear unsecured personal debts such as Catalogue Debts, Credit Card Debts, Store Card Debts, Personal Loan Debt and other unsecured credit commitments you may be struggling with.
The following are links to an article that will help you understand better the different solutions available for Scottish residents to consolidate personal debts.
When considering which solution to explore to clear personal debt problems it is important to consider the total you will repay.
Usually you will qualify for one particular personal debt solution. However, if you qualify for two, it is important to make sure that you choose the correct debt consolidation solution that is right for you to move ahead with.
Debt Consolidation Loans are the first option people in debt tend to explore or apply for. This can be a very expensive way of clearing debt if you do in fact qualify for the loan. You should always check the total repaid and do not consider securing 2nd charge loans against your property if you are a home owner as the consequences can be very hard to deal with should you default. This is because if you fail to keep up repayments on a debt or other loan secured against your home, you are at risk of losing your home due to repossession.

- First … get the best information available from a reliable source

We hear so often that if people had faced the problem as soon they recognised their debts were getting out of control, the recovery process of clearing the debt could have been so much simpler or quicker.
Getting out of debt can consist of one or more of the following debt consolidation or debt management;
A debt management plan is normally a process of informally negotiating the reduction of interest being applied by creditors and extending the original loan term with your respective creditors. A debt management plan is not a legally binding agreement and does not guarantee that interest and charges will be frozen.
An Individual Voluntary Arrangement is a formal repayment agreement between you and your creditors that can freeze the interest and charges being applied and reduce the amount to be repaid in total. An IVA is a legally binding agreement which usually has a fixed repayment period of no more than 60 months with an exact end date. Conditions do apply especially if you are a home owner with equity in your property.
A Debt Consolidation Loan is a way of financial debt consolidation that allows you to put all your personal debts into one new debt by taking out a loan to pay them all off and then having one simple repayment each month. It sometimes means that you are paying less each month with a debt consolidation loan but can mean the debt is spread over a longer period of time. This form of debt help is often the most desirable but not always the best advice for someone trying to get out of debt for good.
If you do not address personal credit card debts your financial life could become so hard to manage that you end up having to face entering or enduring one of the following consequences of being in personal debt;
