Do You Have Bad Credit? Need a Loan Right Now But Have Absolutely No Idea What You Should Do Next?

How often have you said to yourself, "I need a loan today?" Many of us need a loan right now, but unfortunately are held back by bad credit. This is a common problem and sometimes it just seems that there is no obvious solution.

Sure, you could take up the offers of some of these loan services you see advertised sometimes. However, it seems that many of these so-called "lenders" are just out to get what they can. It's all sweetness and light when it comes to issuing you with that loan when you most need it. Although upon closer inspection, it appears that many of these lenders have some hidden terms and conditions. They literally prey on people with bad credit because they know how desperate you may be. Once you have signed the paperwork, you are hit with some pretty excessive charges and interest rates!

If you are having financial difficulties, it's always best to do some research first before jumping in! One of the first things you should do is find out why you have such a poor credit rating. Order a copy of your credit report from either Experian, Equifax or TransUnion. It's free and you can get a new copy once a year. Check for any obvious errors and speak to the lenders involved.

Next you should look at your current debt. Did you know that the majority of credit card lenders will offer early settlement for people struggling financially? I have personally seen one lender offer up to 70% off the outstanding balance if the customer settled their debt. To put that into plain figures - if you owed $10,000, this lender allowed their customer to pay $3000 to wipe the debt clean! Another tip, once you have cleared your credit card don't close the account. The more credit you have available of your cards, the better this is for your overall credit score.

Your next step in the process would be to speak to different lenders and find out what the minimum credit score they will allow is. If you have bad credit and need a loan, you may have to approach several lenders until you find one willing to accept you.

If you find yourself having no joy with all the lenders you speak to, it's time to do some research online. Due to the severe economic problems of the past few years, there are more and more lenders willing to lend to people with bad credit. As i have mentioned above, always make sure you have a full understanding of the terms and conditions you will be offered before signing any official documentation.
