What percentage of your credit score is determined by your payment?

Your credit score isn't typically determined by your payments, but rather it is determined by how much you owe. The more you owe on your loans, the more you will be perceived by lenders as a higher risk borrower. With the FICO formula, the amount in which you owe using credit is 30% of your score alone. With that being said, making a late payment will affect your score. Your score could possibly drop by as much as 100 points due to late payments, so if you feel for any reason you will not be able to make an upcoming payment on any loans, contact the lender as soon as possible, and they will generally help the situation by making arrangements for you to make a lower payment; but most lenders will tack on the other amount not being paid to the end of the loan, or they will extend the term of the loan to create lower monthly payments; but please be careful with allowing banks and or lenders to do this, as you will pay more in interest over the life of the loan!

Some collection agencies are authorized by their clients to make payment arrangements. Some agency actually purchase the debt and will or won't make arrangements. It is up to the individual agencies and their policies. Your best option is to contact the original creditor, explain why you fell behind, be very apologetic, and ask for payment arrangements. Legally, they are not required to accept payments once you fall delinquent. They do not even have to accept partial payments.

Does a short sale happen when I stop making mortgage payments?

No. A foreclosure is what happens when you stop making mortgage payments. A short sale must be discussed and negotiated with the lender. In that case the lender agrees to accept the proceeds of a sale of the property even if they fall short of what is owed on the mortgage. They agree to forgive any remaining balance on the loan. It is a way to avoid a foreclosure. Not all lenders will agree to a short sale.
