Jerry is a very patient person, he answered all my questions and made this experience so smooth and easy for me. I was not sure what to expect but dealing with him made me feel so much better. He sure knows what he is doing and how to put people at ease for sure (should have done this long ago). I recommend him to anyone I am so glad I had him on my side and now to do my part. Thanks Jerry ur greatPattie

I had a good experience with Jackie. Making appointment to see her was easy and follow up was great. I appreciated the detailed information she gave and the clear explanation of the options I had. While I landed on this company without anyone's recommendation, I will be happy to recommend their services to those who need them.

The service that was provided to me from Trina at David Sklar and Associates was nothing but superb! I was referred to them through family, and Trina was nothing but understanding and so so so helpful! Every part of the process was smooth and efficient and she explained everything to me so I would be able to understand the process. Can’t believe the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders. Thank you so so much Trina!

I’m so glad that I spoke to Rhoda. I was nervous having to claim bankruptcy, but Rhoda is very resourceful and has a wonderful way of putting you at ease. I felt like I was speaking to my best friend. Rhoda from the bottom of my heart thank you for your help and kindness it goes along way. Linda Bennett

I was absolutely terrified of admitting I needed help and was in a tough position where my best option was to file for bankruptcy. As someone with severe anxiety it was one of the hardest calls I had to make but once I spoke with Trina at David Sklar she immediately made me feel at ease and like I was in good hands. I mostly dealt with Trina and Eva who were so kind and communicative throughout the whole process and made it as painless as possible.I did briefly speak with a couple of other associates from time to time and they were also equally as lovely. The reviews for this company obviously say a lot about these guys and it rings true. I’m not someone who usually writes lengthy reviews but I am happy to recommend David Sklar and associates for anything. Thank you guys for always treating your clients like human beings and always being available for questions or concerns.

I’m finally debt free! I made the right decision by contacting David Sklar to help me with my debts. Grateful to his Associates, especially Cori Naron, she’s very approachable, knowledgeable and kind. She indeed helped me succeed (with her advices and experiences) to pay off my balance before my due date 😇. Her office at St. Clair Ave. West is very accessible as well. I can now focus with my other goals - for I am a mother of Four….

I highly recommend this firm. Christine has been such a help and was very professional but kind I was treated with respect at a time when I was vulnerable and overwhelmed and Christine in a very short time made me feel at ease I didn't feel judged or looked down on. This was a hard decision for me to make but I am so glad I took the leap to move ahead with a plan that is showing light at the end of the tunnel.. Again I highly recommend this firm as well as Christine.

David Sklar & Associates really helped me. Specially Jackie Stanley, and the whole team. It was a difficult decision to make, but I was so glad I made it. It was like a huge weight off my shoulders and felt like never ending payments to creditors that needed to stop. With the Team at David Sklar it helped me reset my life again and giving myself a chance at it. Thank you so much for all your help I really appreciate it.

We 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!

Debt Consolidation vs Consumer Proposal.
Which is better?

Unlike debt consolidation loans, a consumer proposal combines all of your unsecured debts into one low monthly payment and completely eliminates the high-interest payments you are currently makingA debt consolidation loan does not eliminate interest or offer the legal protection a consumer proposal can. A Debt consolidation loan can push you further into debt leaving you exposed to collection call harassment and increasing your stress.

Take a moment and listen to what Dave has to say, then give us a call to learn about your options, it’s your decision to make, let us help you make the right one.

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.

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.
