Irresponsible Borrowing Means Wary Creditors

Dec 12, 2007
Even for the best of us, getting a loan is anything but a piece of cake. But when you are a person with bad credit, and you need a loan, getting it won't be easy. Unsurprisingly, if you've shown that you're an irresponsible borrower then it's only to be expected that creditors will be a little wary when you try to get a further loan. It is only fair, isn't it? After all, you have proved to be an irresponsible candidate in the past. Every lender is here to do business. They are not going to help you out of the goodness of their hearts. Instead of sitting around sulking, objectively look at the situation. Failing to meet the minimum repayments for loans in the past, as well as generally being a little late on your bill payments, can only ever work against you.

Simply put, creditors don't want to have to wonder whether you're going to end up being a major loss financially or if you've been able to change your ways and become a responsible borrower. People who prove to be good debtors by repaying their loans on time are bound to get a good deal. They have won the trust of their creditors. If there have been instances where you have proved beyond doubt that you are aware of your responsibilities, creditors will take a liking to you.

As well as proving to the creditor that you're worthy of loan, you should also be aware that you have to prove to yourself - and your bank balance - that you can manage your money by keeping up with paying the interest, and any of the other regular financial maintenance that needs doing. If you fail to do that, either through general poor money management or some other reason, then there's almost no excuse for not telling your creditor. The best way to go about it is by keeping your creditors posted and discussing with them how your troubles can be ameliorated in the near future.

I shall not go off into a tangent and start discussing how you can get rid of your financial woes. But responsibility certainly includes being upfront with any trouble you might face that your creditor would want to know about. Do not hide your financial difficulties from your creditor. This would be a bad move. Once both you and your creditor have established that you're a responsible borrower, the borrowing process becomes a lot quicker and a lot smoother both for that loan and future ones.

Also, remember that you have a bad credit record to improve. Start working on it now. Ensuring that you've got a steady income is certainly one thing, but you've got to remember that burying yourself in debt now - especially if you borrow more than you actually needed - can only hurt in the long run. Securing a loan is not like playing marbles. Do you really require it? It may sound obvious, but few things are worse than finding that you're in debt for a completely ridiculous reason. A large burden of debt is never a pretty thing; certainly not when you are struggling to pay it off. So make sure you secure only as much as you need.
