Dealing With and Repairing Bad Credit

Bad credit can be a burden for otherwise good credit. It may not seem fair at times that financial mistakes in the past can haunt you in the present, but with a little bit of work and some time bad credit can be turned around and repaired.

The important thing to remember is that options exist even for people with bad credit? and that just because it's bad now doesn't mean that it always will be.

What is credit, anyway?

Credit, also known as a credit rating, is an indication to potential lenders and service providers as to how likely a person is to repay the loan or credit line that they're offered, or how likely they are to pay their bills on time.

If you have good credit then you have a high credit rating, and have paid your bills on time most of the time in the past.

If you have bad credit then you have a low credit rating, and have had problems paying your bills on time or haven't paid some of them at all.

People with bad credit are considered a risk for new credit lines because of their past performance, and are usually either denied credit or services with new providers or have to pay security deposits and higher interest rates than those people with good credit.

What options exist for people who have less-than-perfect credit?

If you have bad credit then it might seem like you can't get anyone to take the risk to extend you a loan or credit line, at least at first glance.

In reality, though, there is an entire industry of bad credit lenders, from credit card companies to cheque advance lenders? even automotive financing and car title loans.

Many of these lenders do require security deposits or higher interest rates, but in exchange they offer services that you might otherwise be unable to get.

Some of these lenders don't even check your credit? though it's very likely that their patrons either have bad or no credit, they offer the same terms and rates to everyone without checking.

How can you repair your credit rating?

Every day it seems like there are more companies offering amazing credit repair services, but many of them either don't work like they claim that they do, cost you more than they're worth, or are of questionable legality.

The desperation to get rid of bad credit can open you up to some scams that are mixed in with the legitimate services, so take care when dealing with any of these companies.

A far better option is to take care managing your finances and repair your credit on your own? it may take longer, but it usually ends up being cheaper in the long run.

Take care to pay your bills on time, and make payment arrangements to clear old debts. At the same time, you should establish one or two lines of credit with low credit limits (to keep them from getting out of control). Make regular on-time payments to these credit lines, letting the providers report the payments on your credit report.

As time goes by and you pay off old debts, these positive reports will overshadow the old negative ones, and the older ones will eventually be removed from your report altogether.
