    Overdraft 11th Oct 16 at 12:50 PM

    Hope this is in the right place. I was looking for some advice on reducing my overdraft (with ulster Bank) I've heard of a few people talking about 'restructuring' their accounts where the overdraft becomes like a loan that is paid off in monthly installments. Does it look worse to have a loan being paid off or an overdraft on your credit file?

    Thanks in advance.

    You could try paying off a bit and reducing ie:- 5000.00 of to start with and pay them back 250.00 and then ask to drop it to 4750.00 and so on until you get to zero or preferred rate of a manageable one.
