Repairing Past Credit Problems

Have you had situations in the past that have put blemishes on your credit? There are many reasons why credit problems occur. Some explanations are:

  • You were a co-signer on a loan that wasn't paid on time
  • You allowed someone else to use your credit cards
  • You may have thought your spouse paid the bill
  • You thought your insurance company was going to handle the payment
  • You are divorced but your former spouse had credit problems

Some lenders will work with you to find a credit solution. They have special programs and financing options that allow you to get a mortgage even with minor credit blemishes. However, it is in your best interest to keep your credit report in good standing. Here are some helpful hints for your credit report:

  • Never go over 90 days past due on any accounts
  • Keep your credit card debt below 50% of your monthly obligations
  • If paying bills after the due date, always pay within the grace period
