Debt Consolidation Canada – It Begins With Your Credit Report

Debt Consolidation Canada: By now you’ve heard it a million times from family, friends, teachers and your banker – your credit report is your key to more money when you need it most. But while many of us know that a credit report has to be closely guarded, we might not be aware of what puts it at risk.

Debt Consolidation Canada – your guide

That is why we’re going to go over some of the lesser known risks to your credit report. See, most people think that you only have to avoid late payments or defaulting on loans altogether to avoid damaging your credit report.

While that does indeed make sense, many Canadians are not aware that behavior we see as normal is frowned upon by lenders and results in unwanted red marks on your credit report.

Once you know what these factors are and you avoid them, you can rest assured that your credit report will remain impeccable and you’ll always be in good standing for future loans you might apply for.

Here are some of the credit management practices you might be doing that are having a negative impact on your credit report:

Credit to Balance Ratio – how close are you to your credit card’s limit? Believe it or not, if your card is maxed, or close to it, lenders really don’t like seeing this. Even if you never miss your payments (even make them early), lenders want to see you carrying a balance of less than 70% of your credit card limit.

Too many applications – Lenders tend to be jumpy by nature and if they see that you’ve been trying to secure several sources of potential debt, they see it as a red flag. Even if your plan was merely to get extra credit cards and not touch them, only keep them on hand, they don’t like seeing a situation where you could take on more debt than you can manage.

Credit history – we encourage readers to never cancel a credit card. Even when you pay it off in full, by cancelling the card you are erasing a valuable piece of credit history. Another thing we encourage Canadians to do is to pay all their monthly bills with their credit cards, then immediately repay the balance so as to show a strong pattern of borrowing and repayment.

What can you do if you just verified your credit report and you find that your report is lower than it should be? It might be that you have too much debt scattered across too many credit channels. This is another factor lenders don’t like seeing.

The solution to that problem is a debt consolidation loan, which would immediately repay all of your debts in one shot and allow you to repay the money you owe to just one source each month.

Debt consolidation loans are often used by Canadians as a means of not only resolving debts, but rebuilding their credit.
