Most people choose to consolidate loans in order to eliminate multiple payments and reduce overall interest. By combining two or more loans, borrowers can lower monthly expenses and potentially improve personal credit scores. In order to consolidate loans, borrowers must possess a good credit score and a history of consistently paying debts on time.
Before making a final decision to consolidate loans, borrowers should take time to conduct research and compare loan consolidation lenders and applicable rates. Additionally, borrowers should obtain credit reports from each of the credit reporting bureaus. Banks have tightened lending criteria and rarely allow borrowers enter into loan consolidation if they have low FICO scores or attached liens or judgments.
