DON'T LET BLACK FRIDAY PUT A BLACK MARK ON YOUR CREDIT SCORE

Anyone hoping to secure a mortgage or tenancy in the next few months will be subject to a stringent referencing process by the lender or a referncing agency.


Overspending at Christmas and New Year is something we are all guilty of but, for those who then fail to make the minimum payments, are late or, get into rent arrears, the consequences can be much more severe and long term than a penalty fee.


Home buyers with a poor and, or, recent credit Black mark may be refused a mortgage or have to go with a more expensive rate, whilst prospective tenants may find they face issues ranging from failing referencing (meaning that they will almost certainly be unable to rent many if any properties) to, for existing tenants, being evicted and being unable to rent anywhere new or, needing to move but being unable to due to a bad credit history.


The best advice is the most simple advice. Don't be tempted to overspend but, if you do, make sure you make the minimum monthly repayment and talk to your card provider. If you are a tenant, keep a separate account where your rent money is safe from temptation.
