What is Debt Consolidation?
Consolidating debt into your home loan is the process of combining multiple smaller debts, such as credit card or personal loans, with your mortgage. Rather than making multiple debt repayments you can make a single home loan repayment each month and take advantage of low home loan interest rates.
