Debt consolidation and debt relief are different

Palmetto FL debtors need to understand the difference between a debt consolidation loan, and debt relief. If you don’t know the difference, we’ll explain it in very simple terms.

A DEBT CONSOLIDATION LOAN: is when you borrow a large sum of money to pay off multiple smaller loans. For example; someone living in Palmetto FL has a car loan and a student loan, and both loans have high interest due to their credit score at the time of borrowing. Now their credit score is much better. So they borrow enough money to pay off all their high interest debts in full, and they’re left with one lower interest payment.

DEBT RELIEF: is when the debtor negotiates with their creditors to pay back only a portion of their debt. They can try to do this on their own, or they can use a debt settlement firm to negotiate and set it all up for them. Of course, these providers will charge you a fee.

What kinds of debts can I pay with a consolidation loan?

This all depends on the regulations and/or laws that govern Palmetto and Manatee county, but the typical debts paid off with a debt consolidation loan are vehicle loan balances, overdue bills (utilities, cell phones, etc.), Visa balances, Mastercard balances, medical bills, department store credit card balances, and student loan balances.

What to do after your consolidation loan is approved

After you’ve been approved for your debt consolidation loan, it’s VERY important that you don’t fall into the “new debt trap”. Some of our customers make the mistake of getting their consolidation loan at their new lower interest rate, and start borrowing more money. This is something you must avoid if you want your financial situation to get better over time.

If you keep taking on more debt, you may end up like some of our other customers living and working in Palmetto FL – they end up taking on too much debt, and wind up entering into a debt relief scenario, or a full blown personal bankruptcy. Make sure when you get your consolidation approved, you learn to live within your budget. Oh…did we forget to encourage you to make a realistic budget? We hope you do.

From all of us at Local Debt Services, we send all our best to you out in Palmetto, Florida, and we’ll do our best to get your consolidation approved in a timely manner.

F.A.Q. for Palmetto FL Residents

Answer: Yes. You can do an Associate Debt Settlement in Palmetto Florida.

An associate debt settlement (or associate debt "relief") is when you have a close friend, relative, or third-party negotiate with your creditors to pay back only a portion of your debt(s).

This is a legal process that has a lot of advantages. By having your Manatee County-based third-party (friend, relative, or professional) negotiate with your Palmetto creditors (banks, credit unions, hard money lenders, payday loan companies, title loan companies, etc.) you are removing most of the stress involved with the debt relief process.

Your Palmetto-based creditors are better off with an associate debt settlement as well because your associate is not burdened with the emotional aspects such as guilt and shame that go with overwhelming debt problems.

Answer: Yes. You can get a Tidy Debt Relief in Palmetto Florida.

A Tidy Debt Relief (or Tidy Debt "Settlement") is when you consolidate all your debt(s) with one Palmetto-based creditor (or one National creditor) and one form of credit. The form of credit can be an unsecured credit (for example of unsecured credit card) or some form of secured credit, such as a home equity line of credit, or a credit line secured with some sort of asset (car, RV, truck, property, etc.).

The way it works is this:

You pay off ALL your Manatee County-based creditors (e.g. - utility bills, overdue rent, local telephone company, Palmetto-based department stores, small businesses, pay day loan companies, title loan companies, friends, relatives, used car dealerships, etc.) with the one main secured or unsecured credit form you chose above.

The advantages of your local Tidy Debt Relief process are as follows:

1) Almost ALL of your local Palmetto Florida-based creditors are paid off in full so you’re hurting the least number of creditors in your local area. The larger national banks such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, U.S. Bancorp, Truist Financial, PNC Bank, TD Bank, Capital One are insured for all consumer credit charge-offs.

2) If, after you’ve exhausted all avenues of paying down your main national creditor, and can’t possibly pay them back in full, you can begin a debt relief (or debt settlement) process with them. By only having one creditor to “deal with” (negotiate with) you are dramatically speeding up your debt settlement process, while making sure our local Palmetto creditors are made whole.

3) By paying off (hopefully all) of your local Palmetto creditors with the money from your single creditor you’re stopping almost all of the collection agency phone calls. One creditor to deal with.

When you are at the stage where you’ve paid off all your local Palmetto creditors with the money from your one nationwide creditor we recommend you carry out an Associate Debt Settlement (see the F.A.Q. above).

Answer: No. You can’t go to jail for having unpaid debt in Palmetto Florida.

Palmetto Florida-based creditors can’t take your primary residency (if you own a home), your home contents, one vehicle, or any tools you need to earn a living with.

However, depending on your special circumstances, if you don’t pay child support, tax arrears, or court fines, there is a very slight possibility of doing a little jail time in Palmetto or somewhere in Florida. This is only in rare cases of egregious default.

So stop worrying about that, regardless of what any debt collection company tells you.

Answer: Yes. You can choose to ignore debt collection agencies in Palmetto Florida but you shouldn’t!

You should never ignore any snail mail, emails, texts, or phone calls from any creditor (National or Palmetto-based) because you DON’T want them to go to court and get a judgement against you. Don’t let it go that far.

If you get notices from any Palmetto Florida-based collection agency acting on behalf of a national creditor, respond ASAP. Get in front of it and start a negotiation if you can.

We know it’s stressful dealing with creditors so consider getting an associate to deal with your national and/or Palmetto-based creditors. See the What is Associate Debt Settlement and can I get one in Palmetto FL? FAQ above.

Answer: No. Debt collection representatives calling Palmetto Florida residents on their phones must do so between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM. The only exception is if you give them permission to call you any time.

Answer: Debt collection representatives communicating with Palmetto Florida residents CANNOT:


--- Call you all hours of the day and night (see FAQ above).
--- Threaten you with physical violence.
--- Use foul or abusive language.
--- Lie about how much you owe.
--- Fake being a lawyer.
--- Fake working for the Federal Gov or Florida State Gov.
--- Claim you'll go to jail (see FAQ above).
--- Say they'll use legal action when they're not.
--- Claim you owe extra fees or interest on the actual arrears.
--- Contact your friends for family unless it's your spouse.
--- Contact you at work if your employer disallows it.

Palmetto FL-based banks, credit unions, community banks, and national bank branches have the strictest rules and regulations governing how they lend money (ANY money – not just for debt consolidation) so they are considered to be perfectly legit.

Palmetto Florida-based PRIVATE hard money lenders, subprime lenders, and title loan lenders must follow all FTC guidelines regarding lending and all Florida State usury regulations as well, BUT these hard money lenders tend to be the most susceptible when it comes to cutting corners, skirting the law, or using shady (questionable) tactics. See our Florida State usury regulations section near the top of this page entitled, “Understanding Florida Lending Law”.

To be on the safe side, no matter which Palmetto-based lender you apply for a debt consolidation loan with, be sure to read all their contract fine print carefully. If you can’t do that, at least find a Palmetto-based professional financial adviser or local Palmetto-based attorney to check the lender’s contract over.

The best Palmetto FL banks for debt consolidation are the banks that give you the lowest possible interest rate and APR considering your credit history and personal financial situation (income, DTI, etc.).

Your Palmetto-based community banks are generally easier to deal with when compared to any of the National Bank Branches with physical addresses in Palmetto. But keep in mind that your community banks are “FOR-PROFIT” companies, just like the National banks such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, U.S. Bank, PNC Bank, TD Bank, or Capital One.

Your best bet when applying for a debt consolidation loan is usually with a NOT-FOR-PROFIT Palmetto Florida-based Credit Union. Even better…a Palmetto-based Credit Union that you’re already a member of.

October 02, 2022 tip of the day for Palmetto-area visitors…

When Does Debt Consolidation Make Sense?

This is one of these most important questions you can ask when considering a debt consolidation loan. The truth is some folks shouldn’t even be applying for consolidation. The key question is “can you afford it”? Meaning do you have enough monthly income to service your debt consolidation loan easily, and still have enough for a reasonable lifestyle, and save a little bit of lucre each month. For some borrowers, this is all a bridge to far.

If you’re swamped in high interest debt and there is no income increase in the near future (or even in a distant horizon) you may not be a perfect candidate for a consolidation loan.

There are some financial experts who create a lot of chatter on the merits of consolidation financing, and the opinions range wildly. A commonly parroted consensus is that all your combined monthly debts (mortgage, car loan, credit card payments, utilities, child support, etc., etc..) shouldn’t total more than 50% to 60% of your gross monthly income. Now that’s not a bad ballpark figure to go by, but that can be stretched to as high as 70% in some cases when the debtor’s income is extremely secure, and they’re not off their rocker when it comes to spending habits.

To further the financial planning community consensus on consolidation lending, the theory is if you do get a loan to pay off all your debts, you must get an APR low enough so you can handle your payments, and not fall victim overwhelming payments. Furthermore, you should never get a consolidation loan for a term longer than 3-5 years.

Of course, like anything one size doesn’t fit all. Sometimes the debtor is at the cusp of greatly increasing their income, or receiving and inhertance, or having their monthly bills disappear (as in the case of a debtor “marrying into money”). BUT, this is rarely the case.

Error on the Side of Caution

With all the above said, it’s best to follow all that advice if you choose to get a consolidation loan. At Local Debt Services, or criteria is a little different. Here is a list the lays out when not to go ahead with a consolidation.

  1. Plan in terms of your NET income (not gross). Your net income is the REAL number you need to keep an eye on. If all your monthly bills, rent or mortgage, comes to more than 80% of your net income, then you may not want to take out a loan. That’s not leaving much for savings of any kind, or emergencies.
  2. If your credit score is quite low, resulting a high APR (annual percentage rate),
  3. If there is no feasible way to pay off your new consolidation within a 3 year period. Life moves fast, and you never know what’s going to come down the old pipe in a 5 year period.
  4. If you steady income is shaky in any way. Is your job in an industry where there’s a lot of churn?

We hope this helps you decide on whether you can manage a consolidation. If you answer yes to 2 out of the 4 questions above you should proceed with caution. If you want find out what your monthly payment schedule would be, use our easy (and free!) 2 step process:

1) Estimate your personal APR here

2) Use our payment schedule tool
(with the APR you estimated in Step 1)

Trust Your Gut

All of the above is fine, but something most financial gurus never tell you is, TRUST YOUR GUT. Deep down inside you KNOW if you can afford a consolidation loan. You KNOW if you have the will power to stick to a smarter budget going forward. You KNOW if your income is solid and steady. Trust in your gut and be honest with yourself. This is the best advice you can get on the subject.

If you do decide to take out a consolidation, don’t forget to change your spending habits going forward or you’re just going to continue the cycle until your on the verge of personal bankruptcy. We covered this already on our website.
