Debt consolidation -Case Study
Debt consolidation is a strategy we use to reduce a client debt
Essentially we look at the client circumstances, their goal and objectives, and engage potential lender to help meet your objectives.
Some of the question the borrower should ask before they consolidate their debt is
What is the final loan amount for payment?
Are there any fee's such as break fee for paying the loan early?
What is the current interest rate charged on the loan?
Can you keep meeting the repayment requirement for the new loan?
Your credit history, including arrears and default?

Her application fee is $150

Interest paid on the life time of the loan is $5,465
Mel actual cost for the loan is $66,455 ($60,000 + $150 + $840 + $5,465)
After four years, Mel continue with her repayment and she was able to reduce her loan balance to $30,000, but she felt that it was time to review his finance so she can save more for her first home deposit goal.
