As a borrower, what are the risks?
You will have to make sure that you can afford to repay the loan you are taking. Since we refinance your debts without increasing your debt exposure, we generally offer you a loan with repayments at the same level or lower than what you currently pay. By doing this you should be able to afford your loan payments.
Since we offer refinancing loans, you are expected to repay the debts you have listed. Not doing so could affect your ability to afford the loan you are taking. As a borrower, you should be aware that taking on additional debt can negatively impact your ability to repay your debt.
As a borrower, not making repayments on time will negatively impact your credit score and might affect you ability to obtain loans in the future.
