Get More to Know About Bad Credit

By: Anaya

Nobody wants to be branded as a bad credit holder. But, if intentionally or unintentionally you have earned this dubious distinction then you need not worry.
There is definitely a way out of this situation. Many questions must be arising in your mind. Let us see if you can find the answers here.

How bad credit arises?

First, let us understand how exactly it arises. A bad credit means that you have very less credit score mentioned in your credit report. Your credit report is available with credit reference agencies like Experian and Equifax. These are some of the credit reference agencies that keep on recording every fine detail in your credit file. Every missed repayment and CCJ is recorded in your credit file.
A lender takes the services of these agencies before sanctioning any loan to you.

How can bad credit score be improved?

You can take several steps to improve your credit score. If you have any loans pending, do take care to repay them in time. Do not miss any instalment. If there are any discrepancies in your credit score or it has not been updated for a long time, do request the credit reference agency to do the needful.

Where are loans for bad credit people available?

Loans for bad credit people are available in the UK sub-prime market. A large number of lenders are operating in the sub-prime market that can provide you bad credit loans. These lenders charge more than normal interest rate because of higher risk involved in bad credit loans.

What if bad credit loans are disallowed?

If you have had a severe bad credit history and many loans are still pending, lenders may refuse you to give bad credit loans. In such a situation, you can think of Individual Voluntary Arrangements. It is an effective way of overcoming financial problems and writing off some of the debts.
