Take Steps To Repair Your Credit
Here are some credit repair steps creditors will want to see after you file bankruptcy:
- Make your mortgage payment and car payment on time — every month.
- Shop around carefully for the right credit card — pay on time.
- Do not take on any additional debt during the bankruptcy proceedings.
- Open a savings account at a credit union and contribute regularly.
- Take out a small loan from your credit union, and pay it back on time.
- Make sure your credit report is accurate and reflects your repayment history.
You Will Qualify For Credit Sooner Than You Think
Yes, it is true that a bankruptcy may stay on your credit report for seven years or more, but that won’t always affect your ability to get a loan. In fact, lenders may be more open to lending money, at a higher interest rate, to somebody who is no longer bogged down in debt. The credit repair process often works quickly. With an honest effort to keep up with your remaining bills or supervised repayment plan, you may qualify for a loan within months after your bankruptcy.
