this was my post on this forum on July 17, 2007 – 1:38pm.
I need advise, here is my situation: I have managed to pay of fa family loan of $4,500.00 and pay down a p/loan from 12,000 to 7,000 since January this year (in total 9,500) which I am happy about, but heres my problem. While paying my loans, work got quite (Casual) I have other loans that I couldn’t pay the full amount each month, so I contacted the company’s and made an arrangement to pay the lowest amount possible for the month as I was experiencing hardship. Even though I have made this arrangement one of the credit card company’s has put a default against my name, I have tried to consolidate my loans but no one will look at me now because of my default against my name, and if they would I have been told that the interest rate would be so high, that its not worth me doing. I thought that if I could consolidate at least I would be able to pay just one loan off.
Now I thought I would share with you as off today I am debt free,
4,500.00 personal loan (family) – gone
20,000.00 CBA (personal loan) – gone
6,000.00 GE (personal loan) – gone
5,800.00 GO mastercard – gone
my hubby had to get a new car through his business so he has added me to the loan, which I have been told will fix my bad credit rating.
You know what this feels so good, It has taken a while but now that 2 yrs has gone and all the debt has gone it is an amazing feeling,
what do people think will I be able to get into property investing now? or will I still have problems because of that bad credit rating? I suppose the next step is to save for a deposit as I have no cash, but I have no debt now either YIPEE YIPEE YIPEE

Congratulations. Great achievement to get rid of your bad debt. You may still have problems for a while because of the default, buy just keep saving for the deposit and your achievements will help you get a loanRichard TaylorParticipant@qlds007Join Date: 2003Post Count: 12,024
Yes great effort and shows what can be done if you buckle down and save.
As crj mentioned i think you are a fair way away off getting approval for a loan as neither of the mortgage insurers will accept an application where there is a default so that will limit your lvr.
Head down and save again and I am sure you will get there.Dr.SpockParticipant@dr-spockJoin Date: 2004Post Count: 69
