I met David a few months ago and i am glad I did. He has helped me all the way through my bankruptcy with good advice and explained every step of the process. David is a very down to earth and very professional. Anytime I've had a question I was able to reach out to David by phone or email and he always got back to me.

I finally pulled the trigger and seek help from this team. I tried to pay my debt in the way it should be until the pandemic made it even worst and couldn't keep up with my payments anymore. Jackie is an amazing person, I told her the problem, she gave me the solution and gave me a variety of options and walked me through the process. That simple. Thank you so much.

Dealing with Jackie made the process so much more comfortable. From my first phone call with her I never felt like I was being looked down on. Jackie made this as easy as being in this situation could be.

I have to say, I never thought that such process could have been so quick and easy. But then again I guess that's what happens when you deal with professionals. I dealt personally with Rodha Lewis, who was very attentive to my personal issue and very professional on her work. She's someone who will actually take her take and talk to you about the process and help you as much as she can. I am very grateful to her and very appreciative of her work. I couldn't have dealt with someone better. Thank you very much Rodha for your work.

I had a nagging defaulted student loan that was holding me back. There were a few smaller issues that were compounding. The lockdowns really forced me to look into building back my credit and starting fresh.Ashley at David Sklar & Associates at the Keele and Finch location was a blessing. She was thorough in her explanations and answered any concerns I had. She gave me the options and let me decide what was best. After conferring with her, I decided bankruptcy was the best option. She made the process of filing for bankruptcy easy.There's nothing to be afraid of. Stigma attached to bankruptcy but you can reset if you work hard to make it happen.I highly recommend speaking with Ashley if you have any concerns about debt solutions.

Our licensed Insolvency Tuestee’s in Ontario can explain all of your options

A debt consolidation loan is only one of the many options available when seeking debt relief. In some cases, a debt consolidation loan is not the best option for controlling your debt. David Sklar & Associates does not provide debt consolidation loans. If you’re looking for a loan, we suggest you speak to your bank first to see if you qualify for one. Many people find that a consumer proposal is a better option for debt relief than a debt consolidation loan.  

consumer proposal will significantly reduce the amount of debt you actually owe, stop interest charges, stop collection calls, prevent any legal action against you, consolidate all of your debt into one low monthly payment and allow you to become free in 5 years or less!

A CONSUMER PROPOSAL MIGHT BE RIGHT FOR YOU

consumer proposal is a legally binding agreement that will protect you from creditors, stop collections calls and wage garnishments, and allows you to keep your assets. A debt consolidation loan does not offer this protection and can still leave you exposed to collection call harassment.

When you speak to one of our Licensed Insolvency Trustee, we will explain all the benefits and disadvantages of each solution, so you can make the right decision.

Unlike debt consolidation loans, a consumer proposal completely eliminates the high-interest payments you are currently making and can significantly reduce the amount you owe to your creditors. Our goal is to help take away your stress, not give you more.

We work within your budget to structure payments based on what you can afford. You are under no obligation to sign anything after your consultation. Take the time to learn about your options and then decide if this is the direction you want to take.

SEE HOW MUCH YOU CAN SAVE

A consumer proposal can reduce what you owe by up to 80%

The Truth About High Interest Loans

Debt consolidation loans are an attractive solution to people in debt because it’s a quick fix to end collection calls, eliminates the need to pay multiple creditors every month, and some lenders do not usually require credit checks, like a bank would. These may seem like benefits in the short-term but there can be long-term implications.

Third-party lenders often market high-interest debt consolidation loans as easy money. However, what they don’t tell you is that this “easy money” is hard to pay back and can result in a debt spiral that is even harder to get out of.

Some interest rates on these consolidation loans can reach almost 60%—the maximum amount of interest a lender is allowed to charge in Canada, without being considered criminal! If the combined interest rate on your loan is higher than what you are currently paying to your individual creditors, then you might find yourself in more debt than you started with. In many cases people find they have actually increased their payments not decreased them by choosing to take on a consolidation loan.

A Safer Interest Free Solution

The Licensed Insolvency Trustees(LIT’s) at David Sklar & Associates are regulated by the government of Canada and do not work on commission like some of the third-party lenders do. Our staff are committed to helping you choose the best debt relief solution for your situation. Not all debt solutions lead towards a positive outcome. Some debt solutions can lead you further into debt and desperation. From our perspective, providing high interest loans to people already struggling with debt, is similar to handing someone a 50-pound weight, who is already drowning.

When reviewing all of the debt solution options available to you, we encourage you to consider how opting for a reliable government regulated, legally binding debt relief program like a consumer proposal can better set you up for future financial independence. Remember, easy money usually comes with strings attached.

Examples of High Interest Loans:

The average interest rate on credit cards in Canada is 19%. The Canadian Government law is that lenders are not legally permitted to charge interest rates that exceed 60%. There are various types of non-bank loans, all of which have high-interest rates:

  • Payday loans*
  • Installment loans
  • Car title loans
  • Rent-to-own products

 

*Payday loans are exempt from the 60% interest rate limitation, therefore the annual interest rate on a payday loan is close to 400% or higher if you miss payments.

Speak to a Licensed Insolvency Trustees before you make a decision

Before considering any loan for debt consolidation, you should explore all your options. We encourage you to consider how opting for a reliable government regulated, legally binding debt relief program like a consumer proposal can be a better option.
