What does your credit score consist of?

A credit rating can have a significant effect on a person’s life, whether they like it or not. Ratings or credit records have always been used only for loan decisions, but now they can affect the approval decision for insurance or for any job. Usually, when applying for loans, a lender or creditor will use the credit rating of the individual in order to decide whether or not they will be accepted for credit. But what is a credit rating, and how can you maintain it? Knowing all the components that go into the calculation of a credit score can help a lot in its maintenance to keep the door open to applications for loans and credit without having too many worries.

The most popular version of the credit rating is the beacon rating. The odds range from 300 to 900 (more than it is high, the better it is – in general, a rating is good if it is maintained above 600 and a rating is bad if it is below 550 ). This rating is essential when applying for a loan, as it will determine the interest rate you can obtain and will affect the decision of the approval. Here are the elements that determine a beacon credit rating.

Payment history: 35%

For a bank or a creditor to lend money, they need to make sure that the potential borrower has a good history of payments. If the person has had multiple recoveries, missed or late payments, or bankruptcy, this will greatly affect their credit rating. However, those who apply for loans or credit can take some comfort knowing that if they have missed a few payments in the past and have turned around recently, this may reflect positively on their credit rating. credit. Recent payment mischiefs are taken much more seriously and can hurt credit ratings, even more than those done in the past.

Debts: 30%

Concisely, the more borrowed an individual has been unable to repay the loan effectively, the less likely he or she is to be approved for a loan and have a good rating. The more debt a person has, the riskier it is to lend money to that individual. The more credit is used to pay the bills, the lower the credit rating. It is advisable to keep the credit consumption below 35%. Your credit consumption is the amount owed in relation to a certain credit limit.

Longevity of credit: 15%

Financial responsibility is assessed over an extended period of time. The older the credit history, the better, because they are a good indicator of the spending habits of the individual and the possibility of a full repayment of the potential loan.

New credit surveys: 10%

The active flow of new credit applications can have a negative influence on the credit rating. The surveys conducted during the year are those taken into account in the credit rating equation. Searching for new credit applications shows that the person may be in financial trouble and adding more and more to their debts.

Combination of credit types: 10%

This does not have a great influence on the credit score, but it is good to diversify the types of credit to justify the experience in the management of finances.

The credit rating is very important because it can influence interest rates and approvals for loans, mortgages and other lines of credit. In the end, a good credit rating can save you a lot of money and is an easily attainable goal.

Get a loan after the bankruptcy release

The current economic situation leaves something to be desired. Jobs are insecure and debts continue to grow. Thus, for a significant part of the population, nothing remains but declaring bankruptcy. Although it is a difficult situation mentally and emotionally, is it really the end of the world? Far from it, actually. With proper planning and diligence, you can rebuild your credit and you can even borrow money to resume the normal course of your life (click here to find out how the credit score is calculated).

Do not get stuck with the bankruptcy release

The first step is to get bankruptcy release as soon as possible. Consult with your trustee/agent to see what steps are required to accomplish this. You will have to send your pre-bankruptcy returns, your T4 tax slip and, subsequently, your trustee will receive your post-bankruptcy return. You should also submit proof of your monthly income so that they determine what part of your extra income will go towards making payments during your bankruptcy. To these payments are added also the payments for the administration of the property and the goods. In addition, you will have to sell some of your assets such as home or auto. Your credit cards must be given to your trustee. Finally, you will take courses on managing your credit. The first session should be followed no later than 60 days after the declaration of bankruptcy and the second, 210 days. In order to be eligible for the bankruptcy release, you will have to wait at least 9 months, so do all your homework during this period.

Start Saving Money and Rebuilding Your Credit

Now that you have got your bankruptcy release, you must repair your credit score. First, you must learn how to manage a budget. To do this, you must track your income/expenses and you must also spend less than you earn. In this way, you will save money that will be useful during emergencies or for a guaranteed deposit when applying for a new loan. If you get a new loan, you can start building your credit again. In addition, if your savings are good, you can open an RRSP account.

With an improved credit score and some savings in your accounts, you can easily start borrowing money, but with some restrictions. Remember that a first bankruptcy declaration is inked on your credit report for the next 6 years. Even after 6 years, you will still have to disclose this information to your creditors. Your best solution at this point is to save until you have 5% for the first deposit, which would allow you to ensure your mortgage. In general, to do so, you will have to wait 2 years after the bankruptcy release and you will need to have at least 1 year of “good” credit.

Do not forget! There are many ways to get out of bankruptcy and start rebuilding your credit rating. Consult your trustee before declaring bankruptcy to analyze all the options available to you.
