Need to make your current debts more affordable?
We can consider lending you money to pay off a number of existing debts and bring together under a single payment with your mortgage. This is known as 'Debt Consolidation'.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Consolidating debt may reduce your outgoings now, however you may pay more interest over your mortgage term.
