Get the right loan
When you’re looking for extra finance, it’s important to know whether you’re likely to qualify and get the right advance. If you do not qualify your loan application will be rejected, which could signify a bad credit rating and have a further negative impact on your credit rating.
Therefore prior to applying for this you need to have a look at your credit file which will detail your overall credit score, as this will impact what kind are available to you. Your credit score is made up using information about you, it details any debts you have had or currently have, any late / missed payments you may have made, credit rejections and whether you’re on the electoral role. When you apply for any kind of finance, the lender runs a credit check which references this information and gives the lender an idea of whether you are likely to repay your debts.
With the huge amount of companies available on the internet, there are those that do specialise in providing funds to applicants with a bad credit rating, however these often come at higher interest rates than those offered to those with a good rating and therefore are more expensive.
Essentially what you need to avoid is being approved for a high interest rate when your credit rating really isn’t that bad as you’ll end up losing out on money. In short to get the right funds, find out your credit rating by signing up to Experian or Equifax, and then shop around online to seek the best deal available to you – a loan that you are likely to be approved for. If you find that your credit rating is negative, do not apply for money, seek an alternative method for raising finance.
