We can never be so sure of how our life goes. Sometimes life may bring us to unexpected situations that may affect matters that we thought we have well prepared for. Your loan repayment is one of these matters. Fortunately, lenders are aware of the possibility of financial capacity changes. You may have had a medical emergency, a family problem, a livelihood struggle, etc., causing you to have a hard time repaying your dues. What you should know is this, as long as you strive hard to settle things, you may be able to deal with your repayment issues as well as possible.
Every lender has its own terms and conditions. These tips won’t be able to guarantee success in fixing your repayment problems but you might as well give them a try.

Best Ways to Deal with Repayment Issues for Your Personal Loan
- When You Have Foreseen Budget Shortage.
When you have calculated your monthly expenses in advance and have learned that you honestly cannot afford both your essentials and your loan repayment; the best thing for you to do is contact your lender, tell them about your situation and ask them for advice on how to deal with the delayed repayment.
- When You Have Missed a Single Repayment.
A single missed repayment may not cause a big problem but it may result in penalties and credit score reduction. Most lenders have a “grace period” —a set number of days in which your payment may be late without or fewer consequences, if your funds are available within your lender’s grace period, then pay your missed repayment as soon as possible. If your lender does not offer a grace period or if you have just missed it, then contact your lender and try to explain your financial dilemma and ask for their advice on how to lessen the negative effects on your account.
- When You Have Missed a Couple of Repayments.
Missing more than one repayment will send off a negative message to your lender. We highly discourage you from getting to this stage. Missing a couple of repayments will lead to bad credit scores, higher interest rates, and if you keep on neglecting repayments, collateral confiscation, or lawsuit. If you have encountered huge financial trouble, it would be best to inform your lender as soon as possible. Do not wait for a month to pass by. Letting your lender know your financial situation earlier on will help them help you figure out a way to settle your debt within your capabilities.
You may have noticed that in all repayment issue situations, contacting your lender is always the bottom line. Many payors who miss repayments are fonder of hiding from their lenders instead of letting them know the reasons why they are failing to repay. This way does not fix the repayment issues; instead, this way would make your problems worse. Always remember that getting in touch with your lender does not only give them the chance to understand your financial situation, but this will also let them know that you are taking your repayments seriously. Help them help you!
