|Bad credit is a widespread problem in the UK. The number of
people filing for bankruptcy is increasing. A bad credit history
includes arrears, default, county court judgments, bankruptcy,
etc. A bad credit history haunts the borrower for a very long
time. It becomes very difficult to obtain a bad credit loan.
Even if you manage to get one, the lender will charge a very
high rate of interest. You acquire a poor credit score if you
default in repayment of a loan or miss out on your regular
Bad credit loans are taken out by
borrowers who have a poor credit score and are in an urgent need
for money. Lenders are usually reluctant to offer bad credit
loans because they consider you as a high risk borrower if you
have a bad credit history. There are many lenders who offer bad
credit loans, but at a high rate of interest. Therefore, you
must compare the loan quotes offered by various lenders to get a
bad credit loan at a reasonable rate of interest.
Before taking out a bad credit loan, it is always better to opt
for a credit repair. Close down all your unused credit cards.
This will prevent you from getting into the debt trouble in the
first place. Take out a debt consolidation loan to consolidate
all your high rate unsecured loans. Once you repay your
debt consolidation loan, your credit score will improve. You can
also talk to your creditor and explain him your inability to
repay the loan. Your lender might come up with some kind of
solution, which will help you improve your credit score.
If you believe that under no circumstance you will be able to
repay your loan, then you can file for bankruptcy. Once you are
declared insolvent, you will be discharged from all your debt
obligations to give you a fresh start. However, this is not as
easy as it looks. Your assets may be sold off to pay off your
debt. Bankruptcy remains on your credit score for a number of
years and you will find it very difficult to obtain a fresh loan
during all these years.
Prevention is always better than cure. Try not to fall in the
debt trap. Use your credit cards very cautiously and take out
loans only when there is an urgent need for money. Take out only
that much loan which you can repay comfortably.
