WHY YOUR PAYMENT HISTORY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR CREDIT HISTORY

Ever wondered why you just can’t get that loan? You have a bad payment history! That is just the plain truth. Your credit score is so low that financial institutions are afraid ofloaning you a cent. You have borrowed in the past, but this time, it is not just working. You can’t seem to borrow credit again. Hey, you are in debt! It is no rocket science. You owe a lot of people some bucks and you know it.

Owing a lot of people including banks without paying back effectively contributes to a low credit score.
The way to fix credit score is to do credit repair. Wait! This is not like some auto-related stuff. It is just a way to make you creditworthy again.

So Why Is Your Payment History More Important Than Your Credit History?



First, let’s understand what both terms mean:

PAYMENT HISTORY — is a record that that shows how often and timely you pay off, i.e. repay your credit. Your payment history is what lenders and creditors use to know if you are a lending risk as a result missed or late payments or even non-payment.

CREDIT HISTORY — is also a record of an individual’s ability to repay debts and his demonstrated responsibility in repaying such debts. This record contains information like the number and types of credit accounts, how long each account has been open, amounts the individual owes, amount of available credit used, whether he pays his bills on time and the number of times he has inquired about credit.

So if you really want to get credit from banks or rent/buy a house, you have to have a good payment history, and that doesn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to figure out. Creditors will care about whether or not you make your payments on time versus how many payments you’ve made (if anything, how many payments you’ve made might actually benefit you!).
