Bad Credit? Tips For Getting A Loan

By: Adrian Adams

We all know what it is like getting into debt. It is not difficult at all to get into yourself in debt, and it becomes a very long journey as you fight to get out of it, only to find yourself in more debt. We all know what a long running debt line means, bad credit.

There is a lot of confusion when it comes to gray listing, black listing and bad credit. Many people do not know what it mean to have a bad credit rating, and they certainly do not know the difference between bad credit and black listing, and many people do not even know that there is such a thing as gray listing. To put the record straight let's look at gray listing first.

Gray listed is what a person is considered when he or she does not pay a monthly installment on a credit account for a few months. What many people do not know is that your name gets automatically entered on the late payers list as soon as you miss a deadline for a payment, which mean that you are instantly on the short list for the gray list. The gray list is not too bad to be one, though we should all be careful when it comes to credit and shopping.

Your name will be erased from the gray list if you pay your account for six consecutive months. You are not considered to be on bad credit if you are on the gray list. In fact, many countries have totally written off the black list for consumer purpose and is only used for large corporate and the gray list have been adopted for all their debt recovery. In these counties it is against the law to enter anybody/ individual to the black list.

The black list the mother of all nightmares, you do not want to be on the black list, because if your name gets added to the black list you will be stuck for at least five years. This means that you will not be able to get credit anywhere, unless you go to the shark on the street corner. There are many things you can do, short of going to that shark.

There is another way you can get credit, however, there is a new loan called the bad credit loan, which your bank will be able to tell you everything about. You could also opt for debt consolidation, where you put all your debt and other account into one account, this way your loan will pay you debt and you are only left with one account to pay back. These accounts are tailor made for people on bad credit, which means that the interest rates are really low, which in turn means easier payments terms for you.
