What Are Debt Consolidation Loans Bad Credit?

Good question. We get it. You might find this term a little confusing. In essence, a debt consolidation loan is taking out one large loan that encompasses all of the small debts you may have incurred. A debt consolidation loan can be a really helpful tool if you would like to lump a few smaller repayments into one regular fixed repayment.

So basically, Jacaranda offers debt consolidation loans to applicants with poor credit scores. We prefer to take a closer look at your finances rather than focusing solely on your credit score. This gives our customers a fair go at getting on top of their debts. After all, we believe everyone deserves a second chance. Although we can not promise approval, we can definitely promise our customers that.

What Debt Consolidation Loans Bad Credit Could We Provide?

In general, there are three different loan categories. These are small, medium and large.

Small Loans

Small loans are taken out for debt consolidation between $1,000 and $2,000 and have a repayment period of 12 months. These loans are unsecured, meaning you don’t need any equity if you would like to apply for one. This is very convenient if you do not own an asset like a car or motorbike.

Medium Loans

Medium loans can be taken out for debt consolidation between $2,001 to $4,600 with a repayment period from 13 to 36 months. Although it is not required, we do recommend attaching an asset or equity to loans of this value. Equity could include a car, motorbike or caravan.

Large Loans

Large loans are also available for debt consolidation between the values of $5,000 to $15,000 – also with a repayment period from 13 to 36 months. Like a medium loan, you are not required to attach equity to a large loan – however, we do recommend it. Again, this could be something like a car or motorbike.

Before You Apply

As the above statistics are just a guide, we do recommend that you look at the possible costs associated with each personal loan type. Fees and charges associated with late payments or failing to make payments could apply to your loan product. We encourage all of our applicants to ask us as many questions as they deem necessary before accepting a loan product. We are happy to see if we can help. That’s what we are here for!

Who Can Apply For A Debt Consolidation Loan Bad Credit

Anyone, really. If you would like to make your weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments simpler and all in the one place, a debt consolidation loan might be for you. Bad credit no longer needs to be an excuse. The only application criteria we require are:

  • You have an active mobile number and email address
  • You are over 18 years old
  • You have had a regular income into a private account for the last 3 months
  • You have internet banking set up and know your logins
  • You are an Australian citizen or permanent resident

We like to keep things simple. If you meet these criteria and are looking at debt consolidation we encourage you to apply. You never know, you could have the cash you need sooner than you thought. We are ready to give you a fair go when it comes to debt consolidation loans bad credit.

What Do I Need To Apply

You don’t need very much. As we’ve said, we like to keep the process simple. This means the basics are all you need to have on you…

  • Your personal info (name, D.O.B etc.)
  • The reason you are applying for a loan
  • Your MyGov details (if you receive Centrelink benefits)
  • Your employment details and employer contact info

Why Do We Need These Details?

We get many questions about why we need internet banking details. To put it simply, we base your application on more than your credit score. This means we need to have a look at your current relationship with money. We access read-only copies of your bank statements to check regular payments being made into the account as well as your spending habits (we do not have access to your actual account). This allows us to look at the big picture. You can rest easy knowing that we use the latest safe banking technology.

Our experienced team may need to contact your workplace to verify your employment – this is all part of the process, so don’t stress. We will never disclose any of your private information to your employer – that includes the reason you are applying for a loan.

Do Lenders Perform Credit Checks?

Yes, we do. At Jacaranda, we will check your credit score but we can promise you we will consider the whole picture. We understand that credit is only a small part of your history.

At Jacaranda, we prefer to take a look at the whole picture. That’s why we will access read-only copies of your bank statements as another means of accessing your relationship with money. After all, we are mainly interested in how you are planning on paying back the loan. At Jacaranda Finance we are proud of the fact that we take a fresh approach when approving debt consolidation loans bad credit.

What Can I Use My Debt Consolidation Loan For?

A debt consolidation loan could help you condense all of your existing debts into one.

Reduce The Stress

At Jacaranda, we understand that combining all of your debts into one manageable debt consolidation loan could reduce the stress of lots of smaller loans. If you currently have lots of little loans that you are struggling to pay off, debt consolidation could make this process much simpler.

Most of our applicants struggle to pay off smaller loans because payment is often due at different times. If you have multiple direct debits set up, it is often stressful to remember which one is due at which time. When these loans are consolidated, the stress of multiple payments can be made simpler with one easy lump sum amount.

You Could Have Less Interest

Debt consolidation could help you reduce your interest rate and fees by combining your existing loans into one. At Jacaranda, we know how tricky it can be dealing with lots of different interest rates and fees. We understand that it is much easier when you can focus on paying off one debt, rather than multiple. We are all about keeping it simple and stress-free. If you think a debt consolidation loan could make your life easier, why not get in touch today?
