Consolidation Loans for Bad Credit

Facing challenges with your credit? No issue.

Through a debt consolidation loan, you can combine multiple debts into one manageable monthly payment. This efficiently settles your debts with various lenders, simplifying your financial management by requiring repayment to just one company.

We are firm believers that your financial history shouldn’t hinder your application. So, even if you have bad or poor credit, we are willing to consider your application for a loan.

What is a debt consolidation loan?

With debt consolidation, you secure a loan amount equal to, or greater than the total value of your current debts. These funds are utilised to settle your existing creditors, consolidating your debts into one monthly payment instead of multiple.

This shift centralises your debt with one lender, resulting in a single interest rate, a solitary monthly payment, and only one account to oversee. The primary allure of a debt consolidation loan often lies in improved management – regaining control and enhancing your financial situation to simplify your life.

What is the mechanism behind a debt consolidation loan?

Debt consolidation loans function by enabling you to borrow a sum sufficient to settle multiple loans, streamlining your repayments to just one lender and a single monthly installment.

Upon applying for debt consolidation, our advisors assess the suitability of this solution for your circumstances. If you have a reliable income for loan repayments and are a UK resident, you may qualify. The decision then involves choosing between a secured or unsecured loan.

How do unsecured and secured debt consolidation loans contrast with each other?

An unsecured debt consolidation loan is the type of loan you’re probably most familiar with. It is not secured against an asset so you won’t risk losing your possessions, but it could have a higher interest rate.

secured debt consolidation loan is the type of loan you’re probably a little less familiar with. It is secured against an asset which is used as collateral, and can reduce your interest rate, depending on the asset value.

What are the benefits of applying for debt consolidation with a poor credit history?

Even with a poor or bad credit history, debt consolidation remains a viable option for you. We consider all credit scores, and there’s no harm in reaching out. Simply complete our brief application form, provide some details about yourself, and you could have the necessary funds deposited directly into your account.

In what ways can a debt consolidation loan benefit me?

If you find yourself dealing with multiple creditors demanding payments, you’re likely familiar with the stress it can cause. Managing these payments and ensuring each one is made on time can be not only time-consuming but at times, seemingly impossible.

Enter debt consolidation. Rather than juggling payments to various creditors, you can settle them all at once, potentially freeing yourself from the ongoing concerns associated with these firms. Additionally, a debt consolidation loan can improve your financial situation both in the long run and on a monthly basis. Consider the example below:

Example debts
Total owed
Monthly payments
Personal loans
Credit cards
Payday loans
Store cards
Example debt consolidation loan
Total owed
Monthly payments at 12.9% APR for three years
£932 – that’s more than £200 extra in your bank account per month!

How does a consolidation loan impact my credit score?

you should see an improvement in your credit score, in the long run.

Is a credit check necessary to obtain a debt consolidation loan?

You’ll always be required to have a hard credit check when submitting a loan application, even if it’s a debt consolidation loan. However, consolidation loan companies will be understanding if you have a bad credit history. Most people look into debt consolidation loans because they’re missing their current monthly payments, which means they’re likely to have a bad credit score.

So don’t be put off by a company checking your credit report, they’re just being a responsible lender, and are still likely to consider you.

However, our online application won’t hurt your credit score.

Which debts can I address using a consolidation loan?

FAQs about Debt Consolidation Loans for Poor Credit

Acquiring a debt consolidation loan with poor credit can serve as a beneficial method for enhancing your credit report. Numerous lenders specialising in loans for bad credit are accessible to assist individuals in bolstering their creditworthiness, thereby improving their prospects for future credit. It’s worth noting, however, that initially, your credit rating may experience a decline as you take on a new line of credit. Nevertheless, consistent and punctual payments should contribute to eventual improvements in your credit score. Additionally, as your credit utilisation ratio decreases and the number of creditors diminishes, positive changes in your credit rating are likely.

Monitoring your credit score is crucial when seeking the most cost-effective debt consolidation loan available to you. Your credit score plays a pivotal role in determining the interest rates you’ll be offered. In certain instances, a higher interest rate may be proposed for your debt consolidation loan, potentially increasing your overall repayment amount.

We acknowledge that if you have a track record of poor credit, applying for a debt consolidation loan may be a source of anxiety. It’s important to recognise that, as part of the application process for debt consolidation, your credit score will eventually undergo evaluation.

At, all credit ratings are taken into consideration, including poor credit scores. While it’s not possible to obtain a debt consolidation loan without a credit check, having a less-than-ideal credit history may not necessarily lead to a rejection of your application. In fact, there is nothing to lose by applying for a debt consolidation loan.

As a broker, not a lender, the cost of the loan is contingent on your provider. However, our commitment is to ensure you receive a fair deal and that debt consolidation is the most suitable option for you. Therefore, we will provide transparency regarding the associated costs.

There is no restriction on the number of debts you can consolidate into one loan. However, it’s important to note that only unsecured loans can be consolidated. This means that debts such as a mortgage cannot be consolidated.

It’s not obligatory to pay off all your debts with a consolidation loan. Certain loans, such as secured loans like mortgages or car loans, may not be included. However, it is advisable to include all your existing debts if possible. Doing so helps streamline your monthly payments to creditors and, in turn, reduces your overall monthly expenditures.

Debt consolidation loans without any fees are not a reality. Every consolidation loan provider will impose some form of interest or charges on the loan.

No guarantor is necessary, but you can opt for one if you prefer.

While some loan providers may require a guarantor, especially if you have bad credit, it is not mandatory with us. If you prefer not to have a guarantor, we will still work to find you a debt consolidation solution without one. However, if you desire the additional security of a guarantor with your consolidation loan, that is also an option.

Regardless of your choice, our goal is to secure the best debt consolidation offers for you. Further details on our guarantor policy can be found here.

Although life would be easier if this was a straightforward question, it unfortunately isn’t. As there is no universal rating system in the UK, it’s a little difficult to answer what a bad credit rating really is. For example, credit agencies Experian and Equifax both use different criteria to assess a person’s history.

In the case of Experian, the firm rates credit scores out of 999. Anything between 0 and 720 is generally regarded as being ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’. Equifax, on the other hand, rates scores out of 700 and will detail ratings under 379 as being poor or lower.

Therefore, to assess whether you have a bad credit score, you should contact one of these organisations and see what rating they give you. If you fall into one of the above categories, then this number may prevent you from obtaining certain financial products or low interest rates.

APR, or annual percentage rate, is the official term used to clarify the interest rate and the overall cost of borrowing. Before offering a financial product, all lenders are required to disclose their APR. In our situation, the lenders we collaborate with provide loans ranging from 12 to 120 months, featuring rates spanning from 5.8% to 89.9%.

The specifics of your repayments will be outlined in the policy documents furnished by your consolidation loan provider. If you are unable to locate these documents, kindly reach out to the organisation for assistance.

You may receive the required funds within 24 hours. However, the precise timeline is contingent on your consolidation loan provider.

Upon obtaining the necessary funds, you utilise the money to settle accounts with your creditors individually.
