Learn How to Maintain Your Credit Worthiness

Those thinking about buying a new home sometime in the near future would benefit from a personal credit assessment as this could affect your ability to secure a home loan.

Lenders can be quite specific in determining which candidates are suitable for various types of home loans - if you are unsure of where you stand, a mortgage broker can work with you to navigate your finances to establish borrowing power.

There are also ways to ensure that you maintain a history of good credit.

Paying your bills on time is very important because unpaid accounts will remain on the database for seven years. Try to keep in mind that an overdue account is usually a debt owing for a minimum of 60 days.

Review your credit file to make sure there are no errors in the information and monitor your accounts for fraudulent activity or any overdue accounts that have been forgotten about.

Also it is a problem for some lenders when someone has taken out too many applications for credit - try to limit them to necessary situations only as each new application is recorded on your credit file.
