What lenders will give a 'close to prime' auto loan rate if one has good credit but their spouse has bad credit?
Answer . Only the lender can answer this..
If you have bad credit does having a cosigner with good credit on the loan lower your interest rate?
No. You are considered the primary debtor and therefore the interest rate would depend on your credit history.
When you get married and you have good credit and your spouse has bad credit does your spouse affect your credit at all?
Answer . If you trying to buy a house together, yes, his credit will be taken into consideration and you may have to pay a higher mortgage rate. If you are trying to buy a…nything together because you need to consider his salary you may have problems. But just cause you are married to him does't automatically affect your credit. But he could potentially harm your credit if he defaults on any loans while you are married. Being married alone makes you accountable for what he does during your marriage in many cases.
Answer . No, so far I have found out without good credit no student loans are available. Except for the federal stafford loans.. RMAK Adds Although it is true that it i…s much easier to find student loans with good interest rates if you have a great credit rating, but even if you have a bad credit rating you don't need to panic and give up your hopes. There are loans that cater for bad credit students other than stafford loans. see link below to get details
I have had a lot of experience with private student loans that are non-certified (they do not have to go thru your school to get approved). Next Student has a bit more lenient… credit guidelines than many other private student loan companies. You might also try Sallie Mae Tuition Answer Loan. Other loan companies that participate with "fair" credit are American General and Citifinancial. Good Luck!
How do you get a student loan with bad credit and no cosigner if your Stafford loans don't cover everything?
Answer . SOMEONE THATS HAS A JOB.
One option is to look for private grants and scholarships, rather than loans. The staff at a college financial aid office are trained to know the latest up-to-date policies ab…out loans AND scholarships. Also, books within libraries and websites such as Scholarships.com and The College and Career Library can provide lists of sources for grants and scholarships for college students.

It's safe to say that it is a basic fact than many, if not most, applicants/ students have no credit history or that they have a bad credit history. Then, of course, there are those applicants/students who exhibit financial responsibility and fiscal abilities that would shame a banker.

Staying and eating at home while attending J/CC allows you to work and save money to augment any scholarship or other types of financial assistance.
Answer . \nTry going to the financial aid office at the college. They can help you apply for loans and grants.
When you cosign on a loan, you are liable for payment of that loan if the other person does not make payments. Any late payments and other negatives will be reflected on your …credit report. The debt will be included in your debt-to-income ratio. If the person makes all payments on time, it could actually help your credit score. Usually, it's the other way around, though. Bottom line: as a cosigner, you are treated as a signer.
Answer (FAFSA). The FAFSA is used to apply for all types of federal student aid and serves as your application for the Stafford loan program as well.If you qualify for grant…s, they help with this too. Both my sons have used this program. There are other lenders out there...if this doesn't work...just google student loans... just stick with names you have heard before. Good Luck!
Answer . no you do have to have a cosigner with good credit in order to get a student loan.
Possibly. However, the cosigner needs to understand all the implications should the one needing the cosign on the load default on payments. If the primary borrower doesn't pay… the co-signer will be held personally responsible for paying the loan in full. That's what they agree to when they sign as co-signer.
Apply for a low limit credit card - $100.00. Use it sparingly and make regular payments for 3 months, pay it off in the 4th month and repeat the cycle for 12 to 18 months. Thi…s will establish you as capable of making monthly payments on time and of paying off a debt to a $0 balance. Never be late with a payment.
Some countries provide government student loans to any student that needs one (provided you are a citizen of course) regardless of your credit rating; you are of legal age to …sign a contract, so you do not need a cosigner. The only requirement is that you are enrolled in an accredited university or other tertiary education institute.
Government student loans. Some companies also offer contracts to those with bad credit, but the interest is much much higher.
