The time involved has little effect. It depends on your income to debt ratio. Higher income, lower debt is good, while lower income and higher debt is bad. It also depends on the total amount used of you current available credit.

To rebuild credit after bankruptcy, you should make sure you that you stay within budget by only buying what you need to stay alive, thus saving as much money as possible. Also, make sure that bills are payed in time, even if this causes negative balance on your bank account. This shows that you are capable of paying your bills, wich will help with getting credit in the future.

It will not lower your chances for being approved, it actually may raise them a little bit. Each lender has their own criteria for extending credit.

Credit scores are calculated based on ALL the information showing in a report at the time they are requested. That having been said; any derogatory information, like a late payment, that gets reported within the past 12 months would have a significant impact on the score. This impact would be most notable on a consumer's report with no other derogatory information.

No, but the inquiry, if too many are done, can have a negative effect.NewCorrect, but remember that only credit inquiries within the last 90 day period will negatively impact your FICO score rating.

Live within your means. The simple rule is don't buy more than you can pay for. If you take out a loan, and a credit card can be a type of loan, make sure all your payments are made on time. If you pay off the credit card every month, you will develop a good credit rating.

joe - The start of the decade came with a new way of buying luxuries, what we call today credit. Back then there was no government controlled credit so you basically walk in to store talk to the store owner about what you want to buy using credit and you will arrange something with store owner. There were no credit cards at the time so each store you used a credit, you placed a tab, and if you didn't pay within a certain deadline creditors would come and reclaim your possessions

The deferral option itself will not have a significant effect. The debt to credit ratio that might be incurred during the time period, will definitely change a credit score. Therefore, deferred accounts can have a negative impact on the CR.

If you want to get a credit card, the first thing to do is to find one that does not have a high interest rate. By doing this, you will be able to avoid extra fees that are associated with your purchases. The next thing you will want to remember when getting a credit card is to avoid using it to buy menial things. Credit cards should only be used in emergency situations when money is tight within the household. Living debt-free really does start with regulating your credit card use and how the members of your family use it.

Keep in mind that a bankruptcy will affect your credit score. What you must do now is add good credit e.g. secure credit cards and maybe a secure loan will increase your credit score within 2 years. Your credit scrore primarily judge consumers on what they have done within the last two years. If you add good credit, your score will increase.

Applying for an auto loan counts as an "inquiry" on your credit report. While the number of inquiries is a factor in your credit score, it generally has a relatively small impact, with elements such as past payment history and use of credit receiving much more weight in the score. If you make multiple applications for a car loan within a 45-day window, it lessens the impact because most of the credit bureaus realize you're shopping for a car loan.

Sometimes yes. There are fees if you don't use it within X months, and generally fees for making purchases or withdrawing money.

You can have a credit dispute, if the agency reporting the bad judgment does not get back with the company disputing the judgment within 30 days, it HAS to be removed from your credit report. Example: I filed bankruptcy(?) on a auto repo. and the company did not take it off my credit report, I had my credit card company do a credit dispute, they did not respond within 30 days, and it was removed from my credit report.

Yes, but not to the severity you must be thinking. Inquiries from banks viewing your credit score and report will lower your score by a few points, and excessive inquiries will hurt your chances of any lines of credit. Just don't apply for too many loans or credit lines (2 max a year) within 5 years of your expected application.

If you have a credit that is not bad but you have to pay those credit within the particular time. When you apply for a loan for any purpose, the lender will look at your credit score to measure what kind of interest will chargeable for you. So credit score is important.

Unfortunately, no. Credit scores were developed to make it easier for creditors to review how a person handled other credit obligations in the past before extending credit themselves. It really just takes debts into consideration (including public records of judgments). the only time a deposit account may show on your credit report is if it has an overdraft feature that allows you to "borrow" a small amount of money to cover checks that may overdraw your account. That debt history may show on your credit report.Fortunately, the credit score is typically only one piece of information a creditor uses to decide whether to extend credit to someone. Depending on the what type of financing you're trying to get, the application for that credit will ask about assets and that's where you would list your savings account. Demonstrating a history of savings is looked on favorably by most creditors.How the credit score we see is calculated is proprietary so no one outside of the credit bureaus themselves knows exactly how the credit score is impacted by the information contained in a credit report. Having said that, we do know some basic information about certain activities and their impact on credit scores. I've listed below some of the generally accepted influences and, because I've been in banking since before there were credit scores (sigh), I can attest to the accuracy of the info.Payment History: Big Impact. Paying debt on time has a positive impact. Late payments, judgments and charge-offs have a negative impact. Missing a high dollar amount payment may have a bigger negative impact than missing a low dollar amount payment. Late payments that have occurred in the last 2 years carry more weight than older items. Every month that passes since the last late payment diminishes that late payments negative impact on the credit score.Outstanding Credit Balances: Big Impact (and appears to be getting bigger). This is a calculation of how much you could borrow as compared to how much you have borrowed. For example if a credit card company issues me a credit card with an available balance of $1,000 and I charge $900 and keep that balance out there month after month that can be seen as living to close to the edge and will have a negative impact. (Remember, it seems that credit card companies only want to lend to people who don't need it :)) If I have that same credit card and only charge $250 I am demonstrating good use of credit in the credit bureaus eyes and that will have no negative impact. This part of the credit scoring model can impact us in 2 ways: Individual credit lines (that credit card of $1,000 I just mentioned) and a total of all my credit card balances as compared to my available credit. It's been suggested, and it makes sense, that credit card balances shouldn't really exceed 30% of available credit on any one card or in total.Credit History: Smaller impact. How long I have established credit (time since I've opened a credit card for example) gives a creditor a feel for how I have managed credit over time. If I have a credit card for 5 years and have made payments on time that looks better than a card opened only for 5 months. I usually council clients to keep cards open and charge on them occasionally just to keep them active (as long as they don't carry annual fees) to keep their credit history length accurate but I'm not sure that this has a really big impact.Type of Credit: Small impact. A mix of auto loans, credit cards, and mortgages is more positive than a concentration of debt from credit cards only. Like most of these factors it's pretty much common sense, wouldn't you agree?Inquiries: Small impact. This quantifies the number of inquiries that have been made on our credit history within a six-month period. Each "hard" inquiry (we have physically given a creditor permission to pull our credit report) can cost from 2 to 50 points on a credit score, but we've been told that the maximum number of inquiries that will reduce the score is 10.In all, it's best to look at our credit report from the creditors point of view and ask "Would I lend money to this person?". If the answer is "no", then there are steps that can be taken to change that answer. The best place to start is to get a copy of the credit report. The only truly free copy comes from www.annualcreditreport.com. It does not include credit scores but, armed with the information above, you can make a fair assessment of what your score would look like. You can also get some good info from the federal government at www.mymoney.govI hope that helps but if you need more info, just ask!

The first foreclosure will have the largest impact on one's creditworthiness as the home is considered the most important asset to protect (largely by keeping up with mortgage and tax payments). The belief is that if one does not keep up payments on their home, why would they keep up payments for anything else as anything else is insignificant in comparison. The foreclosure will stay on your credit record for up to 10 years and will negatively impact your credit score throughout the entire period. If you got your second foreclosure within those 10 years, your credit rating will be lowered, but not as much that resulted from the first foreclosure. If you got your second foreclosure more than 10 years after getting the first, your credit rating will be negatively impacted to the same level as the first was.

Whenever you submit a credit report dispute, the credit reporting agency has as much as 45 days from receiving your dispute to do an analysis. The credit reporting agency generally will get 30 days to research your dispute, but when you signal more details inside the 30-day window, the credit reporting agency will get yet another 15 days, getting the total to 45. Once the credit reporting agency has got the outcomes of the analysis, the agency should inform you about the results within 5 working days.
