Debt Consolidation Scotland
We’re No.1 In Scotland
Trust Deed Scotland do not offer debt consolidation loans. Therefore we cannot give advice on where to get a consolidation loan from, or on the pros and cons of any lender who you may approach for a loan to consolidate your debts.
We instead offer tailored debt advice and alternative formal Scottish debt solutions. The solutions we do offer help people in Scotland to consolidate their debts without borrowing money from anyone. An individual can still consolidate all of their debt into one reduced, affordable payment per month.
Every year thousands of people use either a Protected Trust Deed or the Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS) as an alternative to a debt consolidation loan in Scotland.
We are a leading provider of both solutions but also give advice on other alternatives, including Sequestration, which is Scotland’s equivalent of Bankruptcy.
Debt consolidation loans combine all your existing debts into a single debt consolidation loan, with reasonable repayments, freeing up your income and enabling you to spend more money on the things you really need.
Unlike a Trust Deed or other formal Scottish debt solutions, with a debt consolidation loan you would repay your debts in full and interest would be added to your balance but this is often lower than your existing rates and your repayments would be significantly less.
Debt Consolidation Loan advice is not a service that Trust Deed Scotland can help you with due to the permissions required to be able to offer credit.
If you are struggling with unaffordable debt, you can consolidate all your debt without further borrowing or without needing credit checks on yourself to apply for credit.
You will reduce your debts into one manageable, affordable repayment.
Depending on your circumstances, you will typically become debt free in 48 months, enabling you to rebuild your credit thereafter. Find out more about Protected Trust Deeds and other formal debt solutions available to Scottish residents.
Yes. It’s a misconception that you need to borrow further funds to consolidate your debts.
On a call with a member of our debt advice team, our experienced debt advisers will give you the advantages and disadvantages of these solutions and provide you with tailored debt advice on how these may affect you.
Ultimately, our aim is to give you informed advice that lets you understand the types of solutions you may be eligible to apply for and with this knowledge, you can then make an informed decision on what’s right for you.
We would never recommend that you choose a formal debt solution over a debt consolidation loan as this a decision that shall always remain your own.
All debt advice offered is completely confidential and without obligation.
Yes. Consolidating debts using a solution such as a Trust Deed, or Debt Arrangement Scheme is made possible for homeowners and people who rent privately, or via a local council or housing association.
Debt consolidation loans tend to be available in the form of a secured loan against your property, or sometimes a logbook loan can be secured on a vehicle.
No. A payday loan is a short term measure used to get people through a short term cash flow situation.
Debt consolidation loans tend to be used to clear multiple debts of a higher amount.
A guarantor loan should only be considered where the conditions are right, and where both the parties in the agreement know what they’re getting into and have been correctly advised. More importantly, the person who receives the finds should be accurately assessed for affordability.
Yes but be careful of consolidating debts using ‘bad credit’ loans as they typically carry high-interest rates.
Consider that there may be alternatives that could work out better for you, depending on your circumstances.
In Scotland, Protected Trust Deeds and alternative debt solutions such as the Debt Arrangement Scheme can reduce creditor contact, freeze interest & charges and potentially stop enforcement action against you.
