You are on: Learn about RBC's credit approval process
When you apply for a loan or line of credit at RBC Royal Bank®, we look at your ability to repay the money by checking your credit rating history and using mathematical formulas to determine the balance between your income and your debt. If you have a good credit rating and your total debt service ratio shows that you can comfortably manage the additional credit, you will likely be approved. If you are not approved, we will help you understand why.
For details on our credit approval process and more information on total debt service ratio, see: Credit Approval Process.
You are on: Improve my credit history
If you are currently behind on your credit payments, establish a strong repayment pattern as soon as possible. There are many simple ways to do this. With many companies you can set up automatic withdrawals to pay your account. If you bank online, you can usually set up automatic transfers to pay your accounts. Until you begin to establish a repayment pattern, lenders will be reluctant to offer you additional credit. If they do offer you credit, they may require collateral (such as cash) or a qualified co-signer.
You may also want to talk to a knowledgeable RBC Royal Bank credit specialist. He or she can answer your questions, provide guidance and suggest ways to improve your credit history.
You are on: Reduce my debt
One of the most convenient and effective ways to reduce or eliminate debt is to consolidate your various debt (loans, line of credit, credit card balances, etc.) into a single loan with a set repayment schedule. As a result, you will have just one payment to deal with and you may find it easier to pay off your debt more quickly.Find out more:
