There may come a time in which you may need to apply for a loan. You have a justified reason in doing so and are willing to present all of the requirements in order to get your application approved. But the extremely thorough application process when applying for loans, there is no assurance that you get an approval especially if you do not provide a solid proof of your capacity to pay for the money you will be borrowing.
If you are thinking of or already are applying for a personal loan, here are some tips to pass that credit check and have your loan easily approved:
Improve your credit standing.
Keep in mind that your credit history is easily accessible to lending institutions. An impressive credit history will give you nothing but glory, even if you’re not processing to apply for a loan now or you just think you might need it in the future. Pay any remaining debts, including credit cards and other loan obligations. If you have existing obligations, make sure to pay in full and on time. Avoid using credit cards in the meantime since purchases could pile up and financial institutions have their way of checking whether you pay on a regular basis. Believe us, this would definitely convince the lenders in trusting you with their money.
Show a proof of your income.
The main thing any lender is concerned about is how you would pay back the money you borrowed. They would be inquiring how long you have worked at your current job and the stability of your job to indicate your long-term reliability financially.
Some lenders may also consider your employment industry and history, as well as your employment status – whether you are under a contract, casual or self-employed. Proof of income would provide a general idea of how much you make in a month. Lenders may also request you submit a copy of your tax returns to further verify your financial stability and capability to pay off the loan you will be borrowing.
Maintain a savings account.
Aside from the fact that it would show financial responsibility, it would also enable you to have an emergency fund, for when you are not able to receive any earnings for a particular month due to an unexpected occurrence, you would at least have something extra to pay off the loan’s monthly obligation. Make it a point to set aside cash on your savings account. When you do this, you are demonstrating that you are likely able to manage your loan repayments.
Go for a realistic loan amount.
By now, you should already be aware of your credit history and current score. The financial institution should be able to tell you the range of credit score required to get approved. Plan ahead and request for the necessary to documents weeks prior to your application. Consider your financial limitations when applying for a loan. Apply for the amount of loan based on your ability to make repayments that you can actually afford.
Create a checklist.
Financial institutions already easily provide the information necessary for various transactions, including loan applications. Based on these information, it is best to create a checklist of the needed documents for your loan application. It can take some time to secure the documents from your creditors, employer, and other financial resources. Incomplete documentations may result to your application getting disapproved.
The lesser, the better.
Before you apply, it is recommended that you check various lenders and the loan facilities to know which offer fits best to address your financial needs. Compare interest rates and payment schemes to help you decide which is more convenient and easier for you. Then pick two to three lenders.
