Repairing Your Credit

If you're a Cleveland, OH resident who has filed for bankruptcy and are interested in getting an auto loan. There are few things you should do to give yourself the best chance towards approval. The first thing you should do is check your credit report. You are entitled to a free credit report and you should take advantage of it to ensure that there is no inaccurate or old data on the report that is still impacting your score. If there is information on you report that shouldn't be there, you can file a dispute to get it removed. The next thing you should do is start saving money for a significant down payment. A good rule for our customers along the Bedford Auto Mile is to use is to think about it from a bank's perspective. A larger down payment means that there is less risk for a bank. If you have a vehicle to trade in, that will count as equity.

Another thing you should do is make sure you are organized when you come into the dealership. You should have copies of your recent paystubs, proof of residence like a utility bill, copies of your bankruptcy discharge paperwork, and references. Continue to pay your current bills on time and monitor your credit to see the products of your efforts.
