However, for a quarter of the respondents the invoiced fees do not seem justified. Yet agencies will take care of all the tedious steps that a debtor is faced with as a particular, and negotiate the best to get the best deals and conditions. Intermediaries in banking operations (IOB) will only charge their work in the event that the file is successful and you accept the proposed conditions. 36% of those surveyed think the fees are justified, especially since they are integrated in the funding and therefore painless. A new type of credit: the rechargeable mortgage.

The rechargeable mortgage, allows to pledge a new credit thanks to the repaid capital of a previous mortgage. The mortgage released by your repayments will therefore serve as collateral to take out new loans.

This new concept is known only by a quarter of respondents, the principle is not obvious and relatively young, we understand that it is not yet very recognized. However after explaining the main benefits of the rechargeable mortgage, more than half of the respondents would be interested in this offer and would use it to get a new mortgage or a loan for the work.

“With the rechargeable mortgage, you think you would finance what kind of project? ”

Another mortgage 31%

How is the use of credits and their various uses perceived?

If now, it is widely accepted that a credit is necessary to acquire a property, a car or carry out work; consumer and revolving credits that finance bank overdrafts or hobbies are rejected. Yet by looking at the profile of respondents, we find that more than 50% of them have a revolving credit or at least a card to take advantage of money reserves.

For over half of the respondents, over-indebtedness is the cause of accidents in life or pressure from financial institutions. Only 16% question the individual behavior of the over-indebted. Any individual, coming from any socio-professional category, can therefore be a victim of over-indebtedness. However, for a third of respondents, modest incomes are still the most obvious target of an over-indebtedness situation.

Today the modern economy would be unthinkable without recourse to credit. For the majority of us, saving alone is not enough to access housing, comfort and everyday equipment. It is also necessary that this bridge towards more well-being does not reveal itself a deadly trap and is not crossed without control.
