Debt consolidation qualifications

The 4 major debt consolidation qualifications.

When considering a loan for help with lowering credit card debt, there are four major debt consolidation qualifications that lenders consider before issuing a debt consolidation loan.

  • Proof of income – this is one of the most important debt consolidation qualifications. Lenders will want to know that you have the financial means to meet the terms of loan.
  • Credit history – lenders will check your payment history and credit report.
  • Financial stability – lenders want to know that you're a good financial risk.
  • Equity – collateral such as home equity is one of the most common debt consolidation qualifications for larger loans.

It's important to remember that each lender differs in how they approach debt consolidation qualifications, and that some lenders may pose unreasonable qualifications or conditions that could be very costly. That's why it's important to get advice from a financial professional when considering a debt consolidation loan.

Does debt consolidation work? For some people it can, but for others there are more effective ways to pay off debt. To learn more about debt consolidation qualifications, debt consolidation advantages and disadvantages, and other ways of paying off debt, consult the certified credit counselors at American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC), a nonprofit debt relief company dedicated to helping individuals and families find their way out of debt.
