Credit, in terms of financial transactions, is one party’s extensions of money or other valuables at a point in time, to be repaid in a lump sum or in installments later in time, essentially forming a contract. The term can also refer to borrowers’ performances on these measures. For example, a hallmark of good credit is making loan payments in a timely manner. When credit repair and bad credit come into play, by this token, is when the assumption of a borrower’s risk of inability to repay what they owe plus interest exceed what the debtor is able to pay.
Depending on the circumstances required to secure a loan, multiple people within the same party in debt actually may want to pursue credit repair initiatives for their culpability after a not-so-fruitful repayment plan. For instance, both children and parents may have cause to try to repair debt they have after a possession which was cosigned.
The most obvious symbol of one’s credit-related affairs is one’s credit score, which places his/her propensity toward risk along a continuum of which higher numbers are better. Imaginably, this credit score is by no means fixed, and like other manifestations of credit, is highly dependent on debtor participation.
