Negotiating with a Creditor an Understanding

Jul 13, 2008
When we think of the term creditor, most of us shrink at the thought of owing someone money. Used in the financial world, the term "credit" originated with a chance percentage of whether or not someone would pay back their loans or not. In the early days, a person's dependability or personal reputation had a lot to do with their ability to pay their bills on time or repay their loans. If these were not paid, the "shooster" was considered undependable and shiftless, and then ran out of town on a rail.

Successful settlement negotiation with a creditor is always preferred and desirable so as to close the records of the account permanently. A creditor is a company, a bank or an individual to whom a person owes money, following the use credit facility or a loan and such owed money is kept pending or unpaid.

With the recent home mortgage most of us obtain mortgage loans from the banks who actually owns the homes that are mortgaged. In this case the creditor would be the bank and the debtor is the one not being able to pay for the home mortgage loan.

Basically, the creditor wishes to have the bill paid off or removed from their records, through any means possible. A lot depends on the way it is handled--what kind of debt it is, how long the customer has owed the bill, the financial situation of the debtor, and the type of creditor involved.

Of course, the willingness of the customer to pay it off plays into this somewhere and somehow. But in the case of the mortgaged homes, the bank ends up taking the house back from the debtor, in order to recoup some of the money owed to them due because of a major inability to make monthly payments. The homeowner walks away either by choice or through forced evictions by the bank.

Negotiating to make a payment plan with the creditor is a part of getting someone's credit back on track, it is a preferable option for both the parties and the payment plan will not be beyond the schedule of the original period, the negotiated payment plan usually will be shorter. If the creditor cannot workout the payment plan with the debtor usually bankruptcy may occur and the payment outstanding remains unresolved.

Most debtors or individuals who owe money know very little about bankruptcy, with the majority knowing little about finances. Additionally, bankruptcy has changed a lot in the past year or so, in comparison to filing in the past. But over the years, money issues have compounded to the point that most relationships are in serious trouble because of them mainly due to lack of communication, as money represents different things to different people.

The system errors or due to human errors sometimes creditors show documentation errors and the outstanding dues may be incorrect. In such a case it should be reported to the bureau should be notified to eliminate the errors. Hence it is always important to get a free credit report evaluated periodically.
