Consumer Proposals and Your Credit
Understand how consumer proposals impact your credit
Generally, with the filing of bankruptcy or a consumer proposal, the rating agencies will assign a very low to lowest credit score.
Information on your credit rating will be removed after a specified period of time, depending on the type of information and where you live. A consumer proposal will remain on your record for several years following the time it is paid off.
Your ability to secure credit will depend upon your ability to convince a lender that you are a good credit risk, despite the consumer proposal setback. In general, a lender is never obligated to extend credit to anyone.
After the debt has been repaid, send copies of the final documents to the major credit-reporting services. Be sure to keep copies of everything for future transactions and to be sure all the information has been recorded accurately.
