Loans For People With Bad Credit 2017

This borrower is typical of many people who are looking for loans for people with bad credit in 2017. They lost their jobs for a short period. This was enough to cause them to miss several rent payments and their credit rating to sink into the bad category. They also did not have any emergency savings set aside.

They made matters worse by borrowing money from payday loan firms which charge high interest rates and high service fees as well. They can be even more expensive than carrying credit card debt at 21 % interest rates. All of the payday loans were taken out by the applicant. His girlfriend who lives with him was not involved and in fact her credit rating is in the good category.

They are applying for a loan together. They both have jobs and they are both making decent money from hourly wages and tips in the food service industry. He is a bartender and she is a waitress.

They are pretty serious and want to make a life together. She is willing to cosign on the loan to help her boyfriend recover from his bad credit. This is an admirable thing to do and will help him obtain a loan at more competitive interest rates than he would be eligible for on his own.

She should be aware that as cosigner, she is liable for the entire loan if for some reason they split up and he decides to not meet his loan obligations. This is an important fact that many spouses, common law partners and live ins do not realize when they cosign on a loan.

They also do not have any credit card debt and they currently do not have a credit card in either of their names. We recommend that they apply for a credit card, charge a small amount on it each month and always pay the balance on time each month. This will help over time to reestablish his credit rating. It is extremely important that they do not abuse the card and end up not being able to pay the monthly statement in full. His and her credit rating would fall even further in this situation.

We believe that several lenders would be interested in approving them for a loan even with his bad credit rating. Both must co-sign for the loan, making them both liable for the loan if the other defaults. Once they provide all of the details needed, their application will be reviewed and a decision rendered.

I Would Like A Consolidation Loan For $100000 Approved This Week

The current applicant is an admitted procrastinator when it comes to dealing with debt from credit cards and loans. He would like a consolidation loan for $100000 approved this week so that he can pay off the credit card debt he has incurred before another month goes by. He know he is paying high interest rate charges and wants to put an end to it.

The credit card debt is being charged an interest rate of 19% on the unpaid balance. He also has a personal loan. He did not indicate in his application how much the personal loan interest rate was. He also has an existing small balance on his mortgage. In total he is looking for $100,000 which we have to assume matches his current total debt. He did not provide any balance information on any of these debts.

He wants to use his home as security for the loan. A secure loan is much more attractive and will allow him to be approved for a lower interest rate personal loan or mortgage. Unfortunately his home will need to be appraised to confirm the value of the home before a secure loan can be approved. Basically there needs to be sufficient equity in his home to cover the loan in case he cannot repay this loan.

He currently has a good job that pays very well. He is working in a high risk environment. There are many companies in the area developing software products to take to market. Many are successful and many are not. He also did not indicate how long he had been at the company. His wife also is working and no information was provided regarding her work situation.

The bottom line for this potential client is that it is unlikely that this client will be approved in time to meet his deadline. He needs to provide quite a bit of additional information including proof of employment. His home will also need to be appraised which takes time to be scheduled and a report provided.

Based on the information he did provide and if it all is substantiated as indicated, he should be approved for a loan sometime next week or the week after. Obviously this does not meet his timeline and he will continue to incur additional interest at the higher interest rates offered by credit cards. This is a good example of when it does not pay to procrastinate. If readers have a similar situation, deal with it immediately and save yourself a great deal of interest expense.

My Credit Is Terrible and I Need a Loan – Help!

Divorce or separation is always painful for the parties involved. Some couples seem to be able to handle separation in a mature manner, dividing up assets evenly and getting on with their lives. While others play dirty and end up costing themselves and their spouses a lot of extra legal fees and expenses.

This consumer found out after his wife had moved out. She paid all of the bills and decided that she would take the money instead of paying the utilities and credit card expenses. As a result our applicant was left with a big surprise. Not only did he lose his wife, he found that he owed a lot of money and his credit rating has tanked. Regardless of how you feel about your spouse, both parties are hurt financially when one of them takes this sort of approach.

She will be facing the same issues in terms of credit rating decline since the utilities and credit cards are usually joint. When they are not paid on time both parties take a hit on their credit rating.

He hopes to recover some of the money she owes him, however expects that most of what he recovers will go to pay legal fees. He used his savings to catch up on the overdue bills, but is coming up short and needs a $3000 loan to get everything paid off. He can then focus on repaying the loan and get his life under control again.

He has a stable job and is working additional hours to make extra money to use in reducing his debt. The $3000 loan will be used to catch up on all of his debts and make everything current. He will then have one low interest loan to pay each month.

This consumer is in a unique situation that was created by his spouse. He appears to have a good credit rating prior to the events of the last few months. While he is still deemed to be a high risk from a lenders perspective he should be able to obtain a loan. Since he is higher risk than normal and he does have a bad credit rating, he will pay a higher interest rate on his loan balance. It will be less than the interest rate he pays on his credit card debt which is a bonus.

It is anticipated that his loan will be approved. He may be required to send in copies of his pay stub or something that confirms his income and employment.

$8000 Dollar Installment Loan For Bad Credit – Boise ID

This writer lives in Boise ID and is looking for an $8000 dollar installment loan for a bad credit situation. He was quite up front about his bad credit and how he ended up with bad credit. There is nothing wrong with this approach since the lenders would find this out anyway without the benefit of the history of how they ended up in this situation.

They both fell sick, were off work for awhile and had to set priorities with regards to what bills they paid. Their credit rating sank and now they are having difficulty being approved for an installment loan. The debt is credit card debt and the interest rate they are being charged on the over due balance is 21%. It takes a long time to repay a loan with interest rates at this level.

He is hoping to be able to be approved for an installment loan with lower interest rate. He knows that he will still need to pay a higher rate than more credit worthy customers. Even if the rate is 15%, it is still 6% below what he is currently paying. The money he saves will be used to repay the loan more quickly. They are anxious to repay the loan and also show that they are actually good credit risks.

It will take a few years to demonstrate that they are a good credit risk. They need to show that they can pay their loan payments on time without any late or missed payments. It is easy to lose your credit rating and much more difficult to regain a decent rating. Lenders are always very cautious when it comes to lending money to bad credit customers.

This potential installment loan customer also needs to supply some additional information to support his application. Never the less, he should be approved for an $8000 dollar installment loan at an interest rate that will be better than the rate he is currently paying. If he does what he plans to do and uses the savings to repay the loan more quickly,  he should have an easier time with his next loan application.

Consumers experience various emergencies all of the time. This client demonstrates why it is so important to always have an emergency fund available to pay for emergency repairs, out of work situations and other surprises that life throws at us from time to time. In addition to repaying the loan more quickly, he should also consider building up an emergency fund that is equivalent to at least 6 months of income. If he can do this, he will be able to sustain his family and pay all of the bills for 6 months while he looks for a job or deals with some other major problem.

Once he provides some additional financial information, his application will be reviewed by lenders for potential approval.

Credit Union Loan for $5000 in Fresno California

The current writer is looking for a credit union loan for $5000 and lives in Fresno California. He and his wife both work and they believe they have fair to good credit rating. They have no other loans or debt at this time. They rent a town home and are just making enough to live a comfortable life. Unfortunately they have not been able to save any money towards emergency expenses.

Their second car has broken down and they need over $5000 in repairs to the car. Fortunately he works at a car dealership which gives him access to discounted car parts and the repair bays to do some of his own work. Even with these savings the cost of the parts for his car is gong to come to over $5000. Right now they are sharing the other car to commute to work.

They have a good to fair credit rating since they do not have any loans at the moment and they have never missed any payments on utilities, credit cards or past loans.  This situation gives them a good credit rating, however at the income level they are at, cash flow is a bit of a problem. They make sufficient income to pay all of their monthly bills, with little left over at the end of the month. There are no savings for emergencies like this one.

Based on this information, they may have difficulty qualifying for a loan. Their rent and utilities is a large portion of their monthly income. However both intend to ask for additional hours at work and hope to be able to repay the loan, if it is approved, more quickly. As soon as the car is repaired they plan to work more hours.

With only one car, the commuting time is just too much to also try to work extra hours as well and coordinate pick ups and drop offs at each others place of work.  They also have credit cards which have a zero balance at the moment. They do not want to use their credit cards due to the high interest rates on unpaid balances. Even with overtime it will take them several months to repay the loan in full.

This consumer will be asked to provide additional information to help with the decision to approve the loan. Once the loan is approved, the money can usually be in his account within twenty four hours. He will need to pay for the parts before he can begin to work on the repairs to his car. It may take him a few days to get his car back on the road and then begin working added hours.

Need A Loan For $6000 Dollars Today

The situation this consumer has found himself in actually happens a lot more often than many people would think. One of the spouses will incur a lot of debt just before they break up with their spouse or significant other. In many cases, the debt is actually registered in both names and both people are liable for the debt regardless of who incurred it. Both parties risk their credit rating taking a hit unless the debt is dealt with in a timely agreeable manner. There can still be a great deal of difficulty in resolving these situations. Ultimately one spouse must take the lead and deal with the debt.

This consumer has a different problem. The credit cards are in his name only. Even though his girl friend has initiated all of the charges on his cards, he is responsible for the debt she incurred. He has no option. He must repay this debt or risk additional cost from high interest charges on his credit cards. Although he did not mention what the interest rate will be on his debt associated with his credit cards, most cards charge 18% or higher.  Interest can add up quickly unless the full debt is paid off.

In addition if he misses a payment, his credit rating will be impacted. At the very least he must meet the minimum monthly payment to avoid an immediate negative impact on his credit rating.

Many lenders specialize in lending money quickly. They can deal with situations like this. They are able to approve a loan quickly and advance the funds to their customers bank accounts within twenty four hours. In this case, the client may need to provide some additional information. Based on an initial assessment he may qualify for the loan, however once a full application is completed his loan will be reassessed.

This loan will also be in his name only. If he is able to retrieve some of the goods from his girlfriend and return them he may be able to repay his loan more quickly. For the moment it will be assumed that he is liable for the full amount and will need to repay it over whatever term is agreed to. Not all vendors may be willing to accept returns. If the items being returned are used or damaged in anyway, vendors may not accept them.

Most readers will acknowledge that this consumer should have protected himself more. Avoid disclosing credit card numbers to anyone that might abuse them. If a new relationship is being considered, debt should be taken on very carefully and with full protection. Both parties should sign for it and be jointly liable. If your relationship is on the rocks, pay attention to unusual charges and activity on your accounts. Finally most people find that it is better to avoid debt altogether, however in many cases this is easier said than done. We wish this consumer good fortune in the future.

They often turn to debt consolidation companies or as in this case a non-profit debt consolidation for bad credt specialist company.

He incurred large repairs bills for his car and also medical bills for a health situation he recently experienced. These were unplanned and of course there was no choice. He needed help immediately and worried about the cost later. He also does not have or did not have an emergency fund available to help him through this financial crisis. Instead like many consumers, he had to rely on credit cards to pay for these expenses.

Now the credit card statements are in and high levels of interest charges will accrue if he cannot repay the debt by the statement due date. He needs a debt consolidation loan which will have regular monthly payments based on lower interest rates and longer term amortization. With lower payments he will be able to have some spare cash to pay his debt down more quickly and get out of this situation.

Non-profit debt consolidation companies will help consumers figure out the best solution based on their circumstances.

Many do charge a fee for enrollment in a debt management program and a monthly fee for managing debt payments. They do need to recover some of their costs for ongoing assistance and support. The counseling and the solutions they will discuss with you is free, however to make them work the customer really must embrace the recommendations. They must follow through and implement the suggestions that are being made.

Every persons debt consolidation program will be different. But they all will require monthly payments to pay off their debt.

If consumers in the program generate more debt or spend money over and above the debt management program that they have discussed with the debt counselor,  it usually means trouble.

We suggest that consumers with bad credit looking for debt counseling pay attention to the recommendations and try to stick with them as best they can to be successful over the long term.
