Again, payday loans are not the answer and only cause more problems. If you are trying to get out of debt, ‘resources’ are the answer. Knowing the right resources takes time and effort on your part, but there is a solution for repairing credit.

Is your goal to repair your credit rating?

Then you might want to consider many factors before getting started on building your credit. Credit is good in many ways, and bad in some ways. Credit puts stress on us simply because we have to maintain a rating in order to get the respect we deserve.

We all have our own struggles in life and some us more so than others do. There are many reasons that a person’s credit is flawed. We often have to maintain a high degree of accuracy or else. Since, we do not like ‘for else’ then we have to constantly find a solution to keep our credit rating at a rate. The good qualities about credit are that it gives you a resolution when times are hard, and when you want to build credit.

To get started repairing your credit then you must search for various methods that can help restore your credit ratings. The first thing you are going to do is get copies of your credit reports. The disadvantage is you will need to pay for the reports unless you apply for a credit card or loan. Be sure to avoid applying for cards and loans since the more you apply the more it affects your credit ratings.

Once you apply for a loan or credit, the lenders will request copies of your credit report, which adds points to your credit score and it stays on your report for around 3 years. The more points you have, it takes away from your score, which is more important that your credit. Once you apply for a credit card or loan, then you have one advantage of getting all 3-credit reports free.

Today everyone is checking credit, so your score is always affected in one way or another. Nowadays nearly, every business will check your credit report, so if you are buying a car avoid allowing the sales reps to check your credit until you know this is what you want.

It is helpful to take an updated credit report, which most lenders will tell you “oh we can’t use that.”This is ok; tell the reps” you are not checking my credit until I know this is what I want to do.” The credit report can provide them an overview of what they are looking at.

One of the best tools for repairing credit is to stop, think, and listen. If you are in debt, you need to stop and think about your situation and stay alert to the activities on your credit report.

We are going to examine disadvantages and advantages available to you as the debtor. Let’s take a look at what can happen when you have bad credit as well as what you can do to protect your self from the creditors and collection agencies. If you are obligated to pay child support, college tuitions, income tax, the IRS can take your money. This means each year that you miss payments are at default the IRS will deduct your entire tax refund to repay the debt.

The IRS is obligated to contact you before deducting any fees from your tax refunds. If you miss payments on Insurance Policies and you have conditions stipulated on that policy you may be at risk of loosing your property. If you have late bills on utilities, under law, (in most states) the utility providers cannot cut your heat during particular months stated in the law regardless of nonpayment’s. Most states are required to give you a written notice before they can disconnect your service.

This will give you time to find the funds to pay toward your utilities. Likewise, some insurance policies will allow you a grace period toward your insurance. Anytime you are allowed time it is time to stop, think and listen. If you take the time to review your bills and funds and come to the conclusion you do not have enough to pay the entire amount of the bill, you might get away with minimal balance temporarily.

Paying something toward your bill is better than avoiding your obligations. Another point you want to keep in mind is that when creditors write off a debt you may be required to pay taxes on the bill. Once a creditor writes off a debt it is sent to the IRS for review and if they choose to do so, you will still pay on that bill at the end of the year.

So the best bet is when you get the first letter in the mail asking you to pay your bill is to write the lender or creditor and explain your situation politely and ask for an extension on payments. The truth is most creditors that lend or extend you credit hope that you are a returning customer and only suffering temporarily.

If you can keep the creditors on your side this is your best solution for avoiding complications. Another suggestion is to send in minimal payments on current bills that are overdue. Your next bill will be steep but if you keep sending minimal payments until you are caught up, your name will not go in a credit bureau. If creditors recommend that you send payment immediately to avoid hassles, disregard the creditor.

The creditor is doing nothing more but adding more expense to your debt. If you have a bill and have money to make payment tell the creditor that you will send the money through regular mail immediately. Do not waste money on services that will charge you to send a bill.

If you contact the creditors and they simply deny you the opportunity to extend your debt or ask for proof of your situation, it is time to make contact with a Debt Counselor. The Debt Counselor will work on your behalf to resolve the issue.

Do not argue or use foul language when you are addressing your debts, since this will only add more problems. If you have a bill, more than the time allowed for pay it is important that you DO NOT contact the creditors or collection agencies.

This is only letting the agencies know that you realize you owe the debt. By acknowledging, the debt will open up a new debt. Collection agencies and creditors pose a threat to millions of people each day, so the key to solving the problem is finding a solution to the problem. Stop, think and listen before you act.
