Consolidate your bills with a low rate loan.
If you’re in trouble managing multiple bills and high rate debt, you can consolidate them into a single loan payable at a low rate. A Debt Consolidation loan is an unsecured loan similiar to a Personal loan and does not require any collateral like an auto loan or mortgage.
Debt Consolidation is often advisable in theory when someone is paying credit card debt. Credit cards can carry a much higher interest rate than a Debt Consolidation loan and take a longer time to payoff. A debt consolidation loan has a short fixed number of years and your debt will be paid in full when the loan is completed.
If you are a homeowner and have equity in your property you may want to consider a home equity loan or home equity line of credit to consolidate your debt. Interest paid on a home equity loan or line of credit may be tax deductible. Consult you tax adviser on deductibility of home equity interest.

One of the fastest ways to mess up your credit rating is through late payments. First of all, if the late payment is on a credit card, you’ll suddenly find your interest rates going up. Don’t think the credit card company can do it? Check the fine print on the credit agreement they send you from time to time with your credit card bill. You’ll discover it’s all there in the fine print.
But that’s only the start. Credit card companies report to the Credit Reporting Agency when you account goes more than 30 days in arrears. Any other creditor looking at your report may raise its interest rates on your card. Their justification? That if you’re in trouble with one card, you may soon be in trouble with theirs.
It doesn’t’ stop there. Next your auto insurer gets in the act. The statistics show that people with poor credit ratings are more likely to get in accidents. As a result, auto insurance underwriters consider them greater risks. The result: your auto insurance goes up – or you may find it harder to get insurance.
