Debt consolidation and refinancing are very similar, as in both cases, existing debt is transferred into a new debt so the borrower can take advantage of things like a better interest rate, lower repayments or a more flexible loan term.

This is usually referred to as refinancing if only one debt is involved, such as a property loan or other high value asset. Debt consolidation normally refers to multiple loans being refinanced, but this isn’t always the case – borrowers may also use a Harmoney debt consolidation loan to “refinance” a single debt.
