Lenders like Stability and Reliability – They Want to See the Whole Picture

In addition to a healthy credit rating, here are the other things lenders like to see:

  • that you can save money, so make sure that you have a savings account and squirrel money away regularly;
  • that you are stable in your employment, so don’t jump from job to job unless a fantastic job comes your way and if you passed it up, you’d be absolutely  miserable for the rest of your life;
  • that your living arrangement are stable, so make friends with your landlord and stay put!


What They DON’T Like to See:

  • Frequent changes of address;
  • Overdrafts;
  • NSFs;
  • Late Payment Charges


Fine-tuning your credit rep takes time, patience and determination – keep your eye on the prize!
