Your Questions About Bad Credit Answered

Aug 17, 2007
Not everyone has a good credit core. Some people have a bad credit score. This need not be the end ot the road and does not mean that you cannot obtain further credit. Borrowing more may reduce your monthly outgoings and improve your credit rating.

Most lenders give priority to borrowers who have a good credit rating in their credit report. That said; even if you have bad credit you may still get credit. Also, there are ways to improve your credit profile.

Homeowners with bad credit may decide not to apply for a mortgage refinance. The majority of people assume that their application for a loan will be turned down due to a bad credit rating. However, many homeowners have succeeded in refinancing their mortgage despite having a low credit rating. In many cases refinancing your mortgage may improve your credit rate. The fact that a loan has been accepted is good for your credit score and if you use the loan to pay off debts such as unsecured loans and credit cards then you may recover from bad credit. If you use common sense and pay off your expensive credit you can impove your credit score. Refinancing tips and advice can be obtained online.

When a homeowner with bad credit refinances their mortgage to pay off expensive debt it is often called a debt consolidation loan. This can only be done if the value of the home means there is enough equity in the property to use as security for the increased loan. Typically this will be the case where the house has increased in value. The new loan will normally be larger than the old loan. It will need to cover the old loan and any other debts to be paid off. Mortgage refinancing normally involves many of the same steps involved in obtaining the original loan so the new loan will also need to cover the cost of refinancing together with any closing costs.

If you have a bad credit score for example below 66 then you will need to use a sub-prime refinance lender. These lenders work with people with bad credit whether the credit is caused by poor debt management or a history of chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy. The loan process or refinancing may be stressful but mortgage refinancing may be possible even with bad credit.
