Being a responsible borrower does not mean just paying back the money you owe and everybodys happy, you bet your life we are. It also comprises the responsibility towards your family, not putting them in a difficult position of losing your home or your business, suffering hardships or even split up marriages for this reason.
What Do Responsible Borrowers Do?
First, think about how they got into debt. Get cracking to correct the root of the problem. Got a bad job? Get a better one. No job? Get one. Business is falling to bits? Change trades, add products, give a better service, do something about it, quick. Use your ingenuity and youll surely find a solution. And in the meantime?
Ok, In The Meantime, Get a Loan
Right, so here comes the other part of being responsible. Find out exactly how much you need, including fees and other little expenses that always appear. If you think you shouldnt be paying for some of those little extras, ask why you should pay for them and if you feel they are not applicable, well, just push off and see another lender.
No Need To Be Afraid
Its business, not the guillotine. So find out your part of the business, asking for advice, checking out APRs, getting quotes and preparing yourself. Like a stage act. Prepare your part, learn it by heart. If you are at a loss, then you might find it helpful to ask a friend, a co-worker or your spouse to go with you.
Is That All?
Dont sign anything you are doubtful about and if you need a collateral or security, make sure that youll be able to make the monthly payments without fail. Thats one of the basic conditions. If you are not sure about that, get an extra job to be absolutely sure, especially if you must put your home on the line as a security.
Every Single Month
Pay your loan instalment first. Then, pay the inevitable bills. The amount left over from this will tell you exactly how much you can spend at the supermarket. Not one penny more. You may have to eat rice and onions for a long time, but you have your loan safely paid for. There will be time for a banquet to celebrate the end of the loan.
The Conditions Of Loans
APRs vary and so do terms, depending on whether you have good or bad credit, a reliable security, the type of loan and the impression you give to the agent when you finally get down to talking business. You can get free quotes anywhere, on or off-line. Theres no need to commit yourself to anything, for a free quote.
Remember I Said
responsible, not terrified. Just do your duties. There is a saying that goes, because I do everything, I CAN do everything. Its just setting out to get things done. Whatever you dont know, you can ask and learn. Whatever you have failed to do or done wrong, you can make better by being a responsible borrower responsible towards the lender and, most of all, towards your family.
