Securing New Start Business Finance

At MacManus Asset Finance we are approached to assist with securing finance from all manner of businesses. From sole traders and partnership through to limited companies and PLCs.

One of our constant challenges, however, is securing finance for new start businesses.

I would love to tell you that new start finance is a simple process and we have a 100% success rate, however that would be a lie.

Securing finance for new start business is difficult, but not impossible.

Firstly it would help if we define what is a new start business, as, believe it or not even some finance companies don't understand it.

Our definition of a new start business is:

"Either a sole trader, partnership or limited company in which the primary individuals in operation or control of the enterprise are commencing trading in this industry for the first time in the UK, regardless as to whether or not they have had experience in this industry as an employee."

Believe it or not some finance provider consider a newly formed limited company, to be a new start business, even though it may have traded for years as a sole trader or partnership business and simply incorporated for tax efficiencies.

It is important to know this as many finance providers process applications on an automated credit scoring system, which means that when the new limited company is entered on to the underwriting system it will automatically default to decline as without human intervention their isn't the ability to recognise that the business has merely changed legal form, and is not a new start in the defined sense.

This erroneous interpretation of what constitutes a new start business really can effect a businesses ability to secure competitive finance.

Recently we assisted a bus and coach company that had traded for 30 years as a sole trader and had recently incorporated as a limited company.

As expected when we proposed the application the initial response was to decline it, however we were able to demonstrate to the finance house that the business had a long and established track record and as a result the decline was overturned and we secured very competitive rates. Now the client was delighted as they had attempted and failed to get finance when they had approached finance houses themselves prior to our involvement. The difference was of course our access to the underwriters and ability to properly explain the proposal.

So, now we know what constitutes a new start business, the next question is what do we need to do to secure finance.

This comes back to two crucial factors that all lending is fundamentally based on - Security and Serviceability.

Security - if it all goes wrong how sure can the funder be that they will get their money back. Oh, and they want their money back (remember this!)

Serviceability - where is the cash to maintain the monthly payments.

For all the business planning, and Directors CV's and letters of intent, fundamentally it boils down to these two questions. Satisfy these and you will get your funding.

For a genuine new start business the offered security will primarily be in the asset being funded, and this may or may not be attractive to the finance company.

Two extreme examples could be, a new 30,000 car, where the client wants to borrow just 15,000, therefore providing a 50% deposit. With everything else being equal this is a very good level of security with the finance company confident that should they ever need to repossess the vehicle they should be able to sell it for more than the finance outstanding. Not only is the deposit very large but also there is a large ready second hand market to purchase the asset.

By contrast, a new beauty salon requiring 30K for specialised beauty treatment equipment, and offering 1000 as deposit will stand very little chance of being approved, assuming that is the only security offered. The equipment is very specialised and a funder would consider it has a relatively limited second hand market if it were to be repossessed. In cases like this a funder would consider the asset to have zero value so would need to be convinced of alternative security that would provide them with comfort.

So if the asset doesn't provide security, what else is there?

There are only two other options - a personal guarantee, or security over other assets (equipment or residential property).

A personal guarantee would be a requirement for any new start business. Frankly if you are not prepared to offer a personal guarantee as a new start business don't bother applying.

On its own though it can provide only limited comfort. The guarantee of a multi-millionaire personally backing his new venture would probably be good enough, however a guarantee of a tenant, or someone with little or no property equity doesn't provide much security.

Where the PG is limited then a funder may ask for a second charge over a residential property, normally the director's main home residence. If there is sufficient property equity for the funder to get comfortable then this may be a way of proceeding and unlocking the finance.

Of the two Security is the most important. Satisfy this and then we need to demonstrate Serviceability.

This is where the business planning can really pay off.

A new start company that has a written contract with a major PLC to carry out work for the next 5 years, with guaranteed income sufficient to prove the finance payments can be comfortably met is a hugely persuasive argument to secure finance.

We would need copies of the contracts of course but a funder can take great comfort if it can see that cash flow is guaranteed by way of a contract from a reputable business.

The contrast example is a business where its being started very much "on a wing and a prayer", no cash, no ability to prove that any money will be generated.

A "promise" of work is nice, and we see this a lot, but having a contract in place will transform an application. These proposals, without it, will need to strengthen the security offered, via larger deposit, or other security, in order to secure the finance.

Current Scenario Of Borrowing Personal Funds In India!

Personalised to your needs is the personal loan. It would be wise to take a loan on fixed rate of interest as the finance market rates are currently low. It is likely to rise in the near future, if you want to continue your borrowed funds at the current loan rate then you must fix it at this current rate. This helps you to pay the same amount for as long as you hold the account with them. Isn't it a solace from the sudden rise in the loan rates which is likely to occur?

RBI has raised its cash reserve ratio to 6 %. With the growing inflation the rate at which it borrows and lends to other banks has been increased by several points. Try not to default on your payments, missed payments or late payments will cost you a fortune with increased interest rate. Credit cards also experience similar kind of situation, do not default on your credit card payments too.

The golden rule in borrowing funds still holds good!

Security of a good size
Good credit rating
Longer duration

Type of funds you opt for will definitely play an important role in determining your interest rate. If you take up secured borrowed funds, such as a secured loan you will qualify for better rates. The higher the equity better is your rates on loans.

Credit standing, as you all know is another determining factor. You will not only qualify for loan approvals but also get good rates. Easy and flexible loan options are also combined with a good credit standing. Your credit scores are collected from the credit agency such as Experian, Equifax and Trans Union. It is a statistical method to determine the likelihood of a borrower paying back the money he or she has borrowed. If you have defaulted on your credit card payments, store card payments or other borrowed funds in the past, have debts and arrears your credit report will reflect a poor credit rating and vice versa. FICO score is related to this credit score.

In case you have paid back your pending payments, you need to approach a credit agency and get it corrected so that your credit standing will reflect a positive score in future and qualify you for a better and competitive rate on borrowed funds.

Longer duration on your borrowed funds will offer lower EMI (Equated Monthly Installment) amount. The amount you pay on your borrowed funds will be lower as it is stretched for a longer duration.

Commercial Leases - What You Need To Know

Many people think that leasing for commercial purposes are easy as cooking rice. But in actuality, it is far from easy. When renting for commercial purpose, you have to consider lots of things. A commercial lease is also a very important factor to the success of your business. Your lease in a building can also be considered an investment for you. In a commercial lease, you might just want to lease a floor in the building, a stall in a mall or for big business, you might want to lease the whole building.

When signing commercial leases, there are terms that you must be familiar with first and you also have check the details of the lease. You must ask questions and you should also make changes and suggest so that the lease agreement is both beneficial to you and your landlord. Here are the terms you must be familiar with:

The use clause This clause is placed in the contract to protect the property you are renting. All the things you can and cannot improve or remove in the building can be found in this clause. You must be very careful in checking this part of the contract because it will greatly impact your business especially if the ambience or environment of your place will impact your salability to the customers.

The exclusivity clause Having a competitor in front of your stall is not good for your business. In the exclusivity clause, you can include an exclusivity clause wherein it would say that a competition in your kind of business should not be positioned near your stall. This is usually the case when you are renting a stall in the mall or a compound where there are lots of stalls available for commercial leases.

The premises The lease contract should clearly state and defined the premises included in your lease. Also ask your landlord to include the common area, if there are any, in the premises you are leasing.

The security the security of the building is a big concern for businesses. The lease contract must clearly state who is responsible for the security of the building. If the building is big and constitutes lots of floors, the lease should specify which part of the building is the concern of the owner and which is the concern of the leaser.

Clarifications on the renewability of the contract should also be asked from the landlord but does not necessarily have to be included in the lease contract. It is important that the leaser knows if he will be able to renew the lease to the property so that he can make plans ahead. Resolution for disputes over the lease of the property should be included in the lease contract. This way, the landlord could not just evict the leaser when disputes occur.

Terms and conditions regarding the lease of a commercial property may be a little confusing if you have no knowledge of some legal things. If so, then you must consult a legal advisor on this matter.

How to Get a Student Auto Loan Without a Cosigner?

Student auto loans can work like magic when you are in college. They help your dreams to come alive and there are several options to get them. Most of the students do not work as a part time employee in any of the institutions. Hence, it makes things complex while processing the loan applications. Auto loans for students that do not demand co-signers are very rare. This is due to the risks involved in making prompt repayments. It is a true fact that students cannot have a good credit history as they have just started their life. The banks and other financial institutions are not sure whether the students will repay the loan amount or not. The entire amount of risk is passed on to the banks in the case of lending auto loans to students without co-signers.

Private financial institutions might be ready to offer such loan amounts to the students. Students those who are pursuing master degree can easily obtain such loans. If they already have an existing car loan or completely paid off loan, it would be an added advantage to get new kinds of loan. The prompt repayments in the existing loan will add up to the credit history. This existing loan should be at its completion stage after which the probability of granting a new auto loan without co-signer is high.

There are several financial lenders who are ready to grant auto loans for students without requiring any co-signers. It is highly recommended to make the best use of these financial institutions to fulfill your auto dreams. An easy way to convince the lenders is by taking up a part time job.

One more way to obtain student auto loans without any co-signer is to make a considerable down payment. This money can be obtained from their parents. This will help them to get loans at lower interest rates and with many other flexible conditions. The students who have a good credit score and are able to demonstrate their ability to make prompt monthly payments will be granted loan without any co-signers. The eligibility criteria differ according to the financial institutions. It is up to the ability of students to convince the officials in order to fulfill their auto desires.

Restaraunt Equipment Leasing For Start Ups

According to the Hardware Leasing organisation of America, eight out of each ten companies in America now lease rather then own the hardware they want for their offices, and the biggest area of expansion in apparatus leasing is telecomms and PC kit. Tiny corporations don't want to go broke to pay the huge ticket for the electronics that are wanted to run practically each business today. And any budget conscious businessman finds it tough to excuse spending masses of cash on gear that may be outmoded in around a year. Hardware leases seldom need down payments, though you will have to put aside some money for a refundable security deposit. By contrast, loans to finance the purchase of apparatus often need down payments of almost twenty-five p.c or even more. Hardware leases are reasonably simple to get, either without delay thru the maker of the kit or thru numerous online leasing corporations that offer same day approvals.

Since leasing does appear like the most engaging option when referring to adding kit at start up or for expansion of your business, the very next thing you want to get is that there are numerous kinds of leases, and you are going to need to decide which is the best for you. Generally they are shorter than the life of the kit, as the lessee doesn't buy the kit at the end of the lease but instead trades it in for an upgrade, making this the popular choice for high technology hardware leasing. Finance leases are your "option to buy " lease and typically result in the lessee purchasing the kit when the lease is up. For tax purposes a finance lease is regarded as a debt, and so the depreciation in cost of the machinary or clobber could be took, which is one more reason why the finance lease is alluring for leasing huge ticket or heavy equpiment like say for a medical practice or contruction company.

So does it ever seem sensible to buy? While leasing clobber looks to be a growing practice among entrepreneurs, it can have it's downsides. One being that when you sign on to a lease, you are just about locked into it, whether or not 2 or 3 months down the road you realize you now do not need that piece of apparatus, you are likely going to pay the full term of the lease. Futhermore, with a lease you'll always pay more in the long run- a 00.00 piece of office gear leased at say 0.00 a month for 3 years will come to 60.00 over the course of lease vs the 00.00 to buy outright.

Also most finance consultants will suggest that if you want to buy a giant piece of apparatus that you know isn't going to be superseded in the subsequent 5-10 years, it doubtless makes more sense in this case to buy rather than lease. Mavens agree the best recommendation is to thoroughly guage your wants short and long-term when it comes down to each piece of apparatus you are pondering adding, and then the question "should I lease, or should I buy? " will be way easier to say anything.

Raising Company Finance

Due to the credit crunch and many banks' unwillingness to lend, businesses are struggling to raise money to finance their activities using traditional sources such as an overdraft, credit card or loan facilities. For this reason, many companies are turning to sources of income such as factoring and invoice discounting.

Factoring and invoice discounting allow a company to improve its cash flow by borrowing against legitimate invoices that have been raised. A company which is taking advantage of this type of facility will normally be able to gain access to 80% of the value of the invoice raised immediately without having to wait for the normal payment period.

Invoice Factoring The process of invoice factoring generally involves a bank (normally known as the Factoring company) taking over a company's invoicing and credit control function. When invoices are raised, the factoring company immediately makes credit available to the company. The name of the factoring company is stated on the invoice and the payment of the invoice is made directly to the factoring company. The factoring
company will often manage payment collection and credit control.

CHOCCs Factoring CHOCCs stands for Client Handles Own Credit Control. This type of factoring is similar to full factoring however in this situation, the company still retains responsibility for collecting payment of its invoices. The advantage of this for the company is that it will normally be a cheaper service and more control is maintained over the payment relationship with the company's clients.

Invoice Discounting invoice discounting is similar to factoring in the sense that a factoring company will make credit available to the business as soon as an invoice is issued. However, the service is discreet. The factoring company's name does not appear on the invoice and the debtors do not know of their
involvement. The company sends out its invoices in the normal way and collects debt in the normal way.

The different factoring facilities would be used depending on the nature of the business. For example, where it is important to ensure that the involvement of a factor is not disclosed, invoice discounting may be a more appropriate method. Where this does not matter or in fact where it is seen as an advantage to involve a third party to help in the collection of debts, then full factoring may be the correct solution.

Of course, for invoice discounting to be made available, the factoring company must have the confidence that the business it is lending to will be able to tightly manage its debt collection processes. For a full invoice factoring solution, up to 80% of the value of an invoice may be made available on the day it is raised. However, as invoice discounting is perceived as a greater risk to the factoring company as they have less control, smaller amounts may be made available using this solution.

It is important to understand that invoice factoring provides access to money based on business activity which is already happening. For factoring or discounting to work, the business must be already generating or imminently generating invoices. As such, it is an ideal way to improve the cash flow of the business which is currently operating. Having said that, however, invoice factoring or discounting can also be an ideal solution to help improve the cash flow position of a new business such as a Phoenix company. Here invoices will start to be raised almost immediately and so a factoring facility could be used.

Because Invoice factoring or discounting focus on cash flow improvement, they are not generally regarded as appropriate methods of raising a lump sum for a specific business project. If this is your requirement and a bank loan is not available, then a more suitable option may be asset refinance. Invoice financing and discounting are also not without cost. Normally both options involve a service charge (which may be between 0.5% and 1% of the sum lent) and a rate of interest. However, where a business is looking to improve cash flow and more tradition methods of achieving this such as bank overdrafts and credit cards are being withdrawn, invoice financing and discounting is often an extremely useful solution.

How to Start Over After Bankruptcy

The truth is that once the last of the paperwork has been filed most people are just sick and tired of talking about their finances. It's understandable that now you want to be done and stop thinking about all of this, but there will come a time when you'll be wanting a car, to rent a new apartment, or to buy a house and you'll be needing to have a decent credit score. Yes, in seven years this will all age off, but seven years is a long time--and if you haven't done anything in those seven years it's not as though you'll have a good score then, either.

If you start building a plan immediately you can really start over after bankruptcy. Within two years or so, with persistent effort, you can have an acceptable rating to buy a house or do anything else that interests you. That is a best case scenario, however, and it will probably take you a bit longer than thatit can definitely be done in shorter than the time it will take this whole experience to fall off your credit report, though.

Once you've taken the time to build a good plan it won't take too much effort to follow it, so build a plan for your financial future immediately after everything has been finalized. Having a thorough plan is the key to making everything happen. It is essential and probably the most important thing you'll do for your finances.

Your first task should come up about a month after things should be finished when you go to check your credit report. It's very common for some of your old creditors to leave your old debts marked as overdue or late instead of included in bankruptcy. You need to call them and make sure they change this. It's counteractive to have these debts carried around on your report to really start over. This is essential to any other plans you have. You may have to call multiple times and send them something in writing, but keep on top of it and don't let them intimidate you.

After this is taken care of you'll want to start looking at ways to improve your score. Your credit score is calculated based on the information from your history, which is made up of two kinds of payments: revolving (credit cards) and installment (loans). It's easiest to start off building this history with a secured credit card. You can get these pretty much anywhere, including your current bank. They work by using some money in a savings account as collateral on the card, which also sets your credit limit. You deposit this money, usually a few hundred dollars, into a savings account during your application. Use less than 30% of your limit on the card each month, and pay it off in full. This will build up a history of responsible payments, improving your score.

Once you've taken care of this you'll want to look into your many loan options to further improve your score.

Building up a new history and improving your score is a great way to ensure you'll have a lot of options for your future so you can truly start over after bankruptcy.

Emergency Loans For People With Bad Credit

When urgent help with money is needed, situations where financial assistance is needed instantly, which happen to people regardless of their credit history, a lucky few know how to find bad credit emergency loans for fast money.

You may need to pay your utility bills to prevent the power being turned off on you and and your children, perhaps your car sputtered its last and needs repairing fast to avoid getting fired from your job.

You might be pulling your hair out because your brother has been arrested again and turned to you to get bailed out so as not to spend the night in jail, or god forbid, you find yourself facing emergency medical bills for the health of you or a loved one.

During these emergency situations, waiting for help is not an option.

Immediate Loans for Emergencies

To meet this need and provide help to people with a not so perfect credit score lenders created bad credit emergency loans, also known as hard money financing or second chance borrowing opportunities. Emergency loans for bad credit allow people to get instant emergency loans when they need them regardless of their bad credit record, looking to qualification standards besides your credit report, most commonly your income.

Bad Credit Emergency Loans are short term loans that can be accessed immediately funding directly to your bank account within an hour, the same day, or 24 hours depending on the lender. Your average emergency money lender will not ask for a credit report from you the borrower unless you feel it is good enough to help you qualify for better interest rates and repayment terms.

Emergency loans for bad credit are structured to focus on easy approval and application requirements and quick funding. To qualify for these bad credit loans you must be employed in a job for at least half a year and must be 18 years old. If you are unemployed but can document a steady income you can qualify for money as well. The primary requirement to get ahold of emergency loans for people with bad credit would showing a record of monthly earnings, no less than a thousand dollars, to show a means of being able to repay what you borrow.

For funding of your loan you will be required to have a valid and an active bank account for the past three to six months which will be used to wire the money you borrow direct. The above qualification requirement is actually a double-edged sword for the borrower, as there are two reasons as to why lenders ask for banking information from the borrower. First for funding of the money you borrow, and secondly as a source of for repayment in following with your agreed upon emergency loan terms.

If the you become delinquent your payment of the emergency loan bills as stated in your contract, the lender can deduct what is owed from this bank account.

If you meet the qualification standards outlined above, the lenders will fund your bad credit emergency loan money direct into your bank account. You can borrow a range of money from 0-,000 depending on the lender you are working with. The repayment periods for these loans also varies, from two weeks to many months, just be sure to give yourself enough time to easily repay your emergency loan amount without overburdening yourself.

Repaying Your Bad Credit Emergency Loans

Borrowing emergency loans for bad credit, is not all sunshine, butterflies and moonbeams. Your avergae bad credit emergency loan should be expected to have high interest, up front borrowing percentages charged based on the amount you need to borrow, and stringent repayment dates. This is the trade off for getting a no hassle cash loan with almost no questions asked.

The market for getting emergency loans for bad credit is big, with a number of lenders who have different interest rates which you should review in comparison prior to borrowing money. The best way to find the best bad credit emergency loans is using the internet. Online, you can compare the interest rates of various lenders from the comfort of your own home and pick the emergency loan that will be suited to how much money you need to borrow, the time allotted by your emergency, and your ability to repay what you need.

Once the loan is re-paid, the lender be satisfied and will be open to future emergency loan funding should you need it. If your timely payments are reported to the credit bureaus you will also be improving your credit score getting you one step closer to qualifying for cheaper, better loan offers.

However, borrowing too many bad credit emergency loans causes you to risk falling into what is called a debt-trap, meaning you have too many lenders seeking repayment for monies borrowed, leaving you unable to meet your obligations with your current paycheck.

In falling behind you incur penalties that make it more difficult for the you to pay as agreed, resulting in a vicious cycle of paying interest and penalties without deducting money from your loan balance. A good way of avoid the dept-trap would be to make sure not to borrow too many emergency loans at once and to manage the emergency money repayment carefully.

Emergency Loan Alternatives
The alternative to emergency loans for bad credit would simply be saving an emergency fund for when these urgent times arise, allowing you to draft from your savings when necessary. This type of saving strategy would make bad credit emergency loans unnecessary, though not everyone is always prepared for when emergencies strike and it is good to know your options.

For people with bad credit, emergency loans are a vital tool for borrowers who are in dire need of money and do not have the time to wait to get approved for a traditional loan, which will require enduring the qualification review documentation standards that come hand in hand with traditional financing.

However, money borrowed using emergency loans for bad credit also has its negatives, and it is up to you as the borrower to decide if you need the money fast, and can manage effectively the emergency loan repayment schedule.

Get Your Cash Back In Your Greeley Homes For Sale

There are lots of reasons why a Greeley real estate has most advantages for people to stay: it is ranked the 8th most preferred place to retire and 13th most affordable to live in US according to It is also possible to get your cash back (or at least, maximize the value of your Greeley homes for sale) by anticipating what the future holds in it.

There are four major types of decisions that involve your home and your future: borrowing against the value of your home, generating rental income from your home, taking full advantage of government tax breaks, and moving into a residence that cuts monthly housing expenses and is more aligned with reduced retirement income levels.

Greeley Loans. Home equity loans and mortgage re-financings are rarely advised for paying basic retirement expenses, but they may make sense for special needs or one-time projects. It's a good thing that there are several home loan providers in Greeley to make this possible.

There are also some online directories and resources that compare online quotes of participating mortgage brokers. Online tools are also available to calculate your budgeted monthly home loan payments, track local mortgage rates and learn about the many lending products and services available.

Rental Income in Greeley. Consider renting out a room in your home to generate extra income. This may make special sense if you're still carrying a mortgage on the property. The average 2011 rental cost for Greeley is ranging from 0 to as high as 58 from efficiency rooms to 4+ bedrooms.

According to the 2011 Greeley Multi-family Housing Vacancy Survey, the decrease of 3% in the vacancy rate from last year suggests a healthy change in rental conditions over this period. The vacancy rate, while substantially lower, still offers ample choice to potential renters while costs for all types of apartments remain stable.

Greeley Government Tax Breaks. The mortgage tax break may be reduced or even disappear as Congress wrestles with reforming the tax code and reducing budget deficits. But for now, it's the largest single tax break that individuals receive. Interest on home equity loans is usually deductible. There may also be energy credits and other tax breaks that make sense.

On the other hand, citizens of Greeley and Colorado in general can qualify for the agricultural tax rate simply by cutting hay or allowing livestock to graze on their land, even if they don't have very much to do with food production, the Denver Post reported.

Downsizing And Moving In To Greeley. Downsizing can be the smartest way to let your home--or in this case, your new home--pay you money. Reduced living expenses, smaller utility bills, and even lower commuting costs should be on your mind as you consider how you will balance the household budget during your retirement years.

It is worth noting that a Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) is initiated by the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority (GURA). Under this program, GURA has purchased 24 foreclosed residential properties to rehabilitate or clear and replace with new single-family housing. This effort is intended to facilitate affordable single-family ownership and to limit the negative impacts from foreclosures.

Real Estate Litigation: Preliminary Injunctions

Real estate attorneys often have to deal with preliminary injunctions early on in a lawsuit. Often a party will file a complaint and make an ex parte application for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction shortly thereafter. The court will essentially engage in a mini-trial at the beginning of the case in order to assess the need for an injunction. Because the granting of an injunction can prevent a party from managing or disposing of a property as he sees fit, an injunction can be a powerful tool for leverage in real estate litigation.

What Is A Preliminary Injunction?

A preliminary injunction is a provisional (i.e., before trial) injunction that is meant to keep the status quo prior to a trial and judgment. A preliminary injunction is intended to prevent irreparable injury' from occurring prior to a final court ruling. In real estate litigation, preliminary injunctions are often brought to prevent a foreclosure, a sale or destruction of property.

There are two types of injunctions: a prohibitive injunction or a mandatory injunction. The prohibitive injunction prevents a party from doing something (i.e., selling the property). A mandatory injunction compels a party to affirmatively do something.

Preliminary injunctions are just that: preliminary. They do not represent a final ruling on the dispute by the court. Even if an injunction is granted, the case will continue as any other lawsuit. At the time of trial, it is conceivable that the court could find in favor of the party who lost the application for injunction. In Los Angeles Superior Court, for example, a lawyer's application for preliminary injunction is often heard by one judge while the case itself will be heard by another judge. Moreover, after the injunction but before the trial, the parties will have time to develop their evidence and conduct discovery prior to trial. At the end of trial, an injunction may be made permanent (if applicable) or may be cancelled. Oftentimes, at the conclusion of trial, the issue that led to the application is rendered moot.

When Will A Court Grant A Preliminary Injunction?

One of the key ingredients in a claim for a preliminary injunction is a showing that the moving party has a reasonable probability of prevailing. In other words does it look like they will win the case?

This must be done through a showing based on admissible evidence and a viable legal complaint. A preliminary injunction may not be based on a complaint that does not adequately allege legal causes of action.
Another key ingredient in an application for a preliminary injunction is irreparable injury'. In other words, will the preliminary injunction prevent a party from an injury or damage that cannot be addressed later in the lawsuit. The best example of this is when monetary damages are the remedy. There would be no need for a preliminary injunction in a case where a party will suffer monetary damage because the court can award those money damages later on. A party seeking an injunction must establish that money damages would not be adequate or that it would be extremely difficult to establish the amount of damages.

In addition a mandatory injunction is more difficult to win than a preliminary injunction (because the court is more hesitant to force a party to affirmatively do something as opposed to simply maintaining the status quo). Case law states that a mandatory injunction is not permitted except in extreme cases and is only rarely granted.

Because a preliminary injunction will preserve the status quo and may act as powerful leverage in real estate litigation, always consider whether an application for a preliminary injunction is appropriate.

Iva Or Bankruptcy

For people in the UK filing for bankruptcy may not be your only option for getting out of serious debt. If you have steady employment and can afford to pay a modest amount each month to pay towards your debts you can get an IVA. This stands for an individual voluntary arrangement, which is an agreement between your creditors and you that you will make payments to pay back a portion of what is actually owed. The advantage of this being that you do not have to repay the full amount of the debt, only what you can manage to pay. You make payments for a fixed period and at the end of that time any debt left unpaid is written off.

This is a formal and legally binding agreement so is not so easy to get out of as something like a debt management plan. This was introduced by the UK government to provide people with a choice so that they do not always have to go bankrupt to wipe out serious debts.

The Pros of an IVA or Bankruptcy

Before deciding on whether this arrangement is going to be better for you than becoming bankrupt, you should know the pros and cons of each of these options. The main advantages of the individual voluntary arrangement are:

You get protection from court action so your creditors are not allowed to sue you.
It is not publicized so you can keep it private if you wish to.
You only pay back what you can afford to.
Your profession is not endangered.
You will be debt free when the agreement comes to an end.
Your home will be safe as you usually are not required to sell it.
You do not lose complete control of your assets to the extent that you do with bankruptcy.
You can keep your bank accounts, but will not be allowed overdraft privileges.
Creditors cannot contact you about any of your debts.

In terms of possible disadvantages, there are a few things you need to be aware of and bear in mind when making a decision. An IVA normally lasts five years where a bankruptcy only lasts one year. You must have 15000 pounds of debt owed to at least 3 creditors for an IVA to work. You must include all your creditors in the arrangement, but you only need the support of three quarters of them for it to be implemented. You must be able to afford to make a reasonable payment towards your debts each month.

There are also pros to a bankruptcy that need to be considered when making a decision. Some of the main benefits of a bankruptcy are that you only need to be 750 pounds in debt to start the process and it only lasts one year. Your debts will be eliminated immediately upon making the bankruptcy order and once the bankruptcy is final you are free from all your debts.

The disadvantages of becoming bankrupt are quite well known and numerous. Here are a few of them:

The process has to be made public through notices in the press.
You lose all control over your assets and you may be forced to sell your home.
If you are earning good money you will be ordered to pay a certain amount each month.
Any money you inherit will be taken to pay the creditors.
Your pension can be affected.
Your credit rating will be affected for about six years.

Top Pre-employment Background Check Trends For 2012

Pre-hire screening process should be updated on a regular basis to keep up with EEOC and FCRA regulations, so you certainly do not want to "set and forget" pre-employment background check processes. In addition, states and cities also regulate the conduct of pre-employment background checks.

Tracking pre-hire screening news and making adjustments to your methodology is essential to protecting your business. Here are some of the expected developments pertaining to pre-hire screening for 2012:

The Automation of Pre-employment Background Checks

Before the advent of automated pre-hire screening, private investigators were employed for this task. The Pinkerton National Detective Agency was one of the first companies to conduct pre-hire screening investigations, which often included familiar techniques such shadowing persons of interest.

In this day and age, this practice is no longer common. Instead, many companies are turning to automated investigation "apps" and other quick fixes. While this has increased the efficiency of pre-employment background checks, there is a tendency for more inaccuracies and inconsistencies in this type of pre-hire screening report.

For this reason, it is best to avoid easy solutions such as automated web searches and popular pay-per-search websites. Instead, why not team up with a pre-hire screening expert with a documented record of providing high-quality pre-employment background checks?

Social Media analysis in Pre-hire Screening is Becoming More Popular

It has become popular for businesses to check applicants' social media profiles when conducting a pre-employment background check

Social Networking sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter can contain oodles of information about a potential new hire. If a company fails to check out information that is available publically online, they run the risk being accused of negligent hiring practices.

However, the debate around social media screening has also become more heated as some companies are even asking for the use of login information to social media profiles. As a result, states such as Maryland are in the process of writing laws to limit these kinds of pre-employment background checks, and more states are expected to restrict the use of social media in pre-hire screening in 2012.

States Continue to Pass Laws Limiting Credit Reporting in Pre-employment Background Checks

A survey conducted in 2012 by the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) found that 13% of businesses check the credit score for future employees, and 47% of businesses order credit reporting when conducting pre-employment background check processes. In recent months, this is receiving more attention from the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), while states like Oregon have already banned the practice.

At least 31 cities and 6 states restrict the use of credit histories in pre-employment background checks. Look for those numbers to rise in 2012.

Increased EEOC Scrutiny of Criminal Background Checks by the EEOC

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was formed as part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Its main job is to enforce workplace anti-discrimination laws. Recently, the EEOC has been critical of companies that reject candidates based on criminal background checks. The agency has conducted public meetings to consider if the use of conviction and arrest records in pre-employment background checks constitutes discrimination.

In 2012 and beyond it seems that we will see more scrutiny of pre-hire screening procedures. Don't put your business in jeopardy by ignoring this issue and the changes that are surely coming.

Personal Loans With Bad Credit: Why Guaranteed Approval Is Impossible

The lending industry is a highly competitive one, something that is understandable when we consider the demand consumers have for extra funds. The problem is that, in an effort to attract as much business as possible, many lenders are willing to make promises that cannot be kept, like stating that approval is guaranteed for applicants seeking personal loans with bad credit.

The idea of guaranteed loan approval is comforting to people seeking loans but who are unsure of their chances of approval. But while elements within an approval process might be cut out to speed things up, the ability to repay a loan needs to be proven. This fact alone means there can be no universal guarantee given to applicants.

Unfortunately, there are many lenders - especially online - who make promises that border on a lie. So, getting a personal loan from them can prove more troublesome than anything else. Be sure to check with the BBB website for their background, but remember that there are logical aspects to consider too.

No Credit Checks Are No Guarantee

Many people believe that no credit checks during a loan application is the same thing as getting a guarantee that an application will be approved. Sadly, this is not the case. The only advantage it provides is in improved the chances of applicants for personal loans with bad credit getting approved.

Removing the process of checking out credit histories simply saves time, and is a key reason why many online lenders can provide approval judgements in just a few minutes. But a guaranteed loan approval is a different matters, and foolish when the repayment habits of the applicant is not known.

What all applicants must realize is that there are still conditions relating to income and the amount of existing debt an applicant has. To this end, the debt-to-income ratio is more important, and it has a direct effect on the chance of a personal loan being approved.

Forget the Marketing Garb

There is no shortage of marketing flyers around promising everything that a consumer would want in a loan provider. From low interest rates to high loan limits, there is also the promise of guaranteed application success, even when looking for a personal loan with bad credit.

But it is important to know that this kind of marketing garb needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. For example, the promise of super-low interest rates makes no sense if the lender makes no profit. The the small print in any loan agreement usually reveals hidden fees.

Guaranteed loan approval cannot make sense, when it means that applicants with no income at all could be granted personal loans. And giving a loan to someone who is unable to repay it is very bad business.

Security and Income

The biggest issues that lenders have when considering applications from people seeking a personal loan with bad credit are the income the applicant has, and if any security can be provided. Security, whether in the form of collateral or a cosigner, certainly makes things easier.

However, there is no guaranteed loan approval because, even with collateral, the lender prefers to receive repayments. Receiving payment every month keeps things simple, as items of collateral need to be sold to convert them into cash. This is why a cosigner is a far better option.

But even with a consigner, an applicant needs to show an ability to repay the personal loan. The cosigner is only a back-up, and the borrower is the key component.

Foreclosure, Bankruptcy, And Your New Home: Bad Credit Mortgages Explained

Bankruptcy is tough, but is often the only alternative to get relief from piled-up debts. Most people file bankruptcy after significant financial events: divorce, serious medical condition, long-lasting loss of income, and many others. Some people manage to avoid bankruptcy, and to pay off or discard their debts by means of debt consolidation and foreclosure. This way, or another, both foreclosure and bankruptcy make most people think that they would not be able to become homeowners in the near future.

How Bankruptcy and Foreclosure Affects Your Credit

Despite the fact that bankruptcy helps you to forget about most, if not all, of your past debts, it leaves an ugly scar on your credit report that would not heal for the next 7-10 years. Most lenders try to stay away from lending money to people after bankruptcy, as they have a proof that a borrower had left other lenders empty-handed, using bankruptcy as legal shield from debt repayment. Foreclosure, while having a less negative effect, does not sound too promising for prospective lenders either, as they may see that you could not cope with scheduled monthly payments for whatever reason. As lenders would not foreclose for a couple of missed payments, foreclosure is a sign that you either had initially overextended yourself financially, or had a long-term cash shortage. Simply put, most lenders would decline your mortgage application after foreclosure or bankruptcy.

Bad Credit Does Not Last Forever

The fact that you filed bankruptcy or experienced a foreclosure does not mean the end to your homeownership dreams. Many people manage to buy a home shortly after bankruptcy or foreclosure. Very often, it does come at a higher price, as lenders who would undertake the risk of financing people with past negative marks would surely compensate it with higher interest rate and inflated charges. To avoid paying more in the long run, it is important to make every step you can to improve your credit ranking and to minimize the impact of your past bankruptcy or foreclosure on your credit score.

Home Buying Tips For Bad Credit Borrowers

While foreclosure and/or bankruptcy will haunt you for years, there are several things you can do to improve your credit ranking spend less money on your new home.

First, you should reestablish history of timely payments. Getting a secured card from a major bank would help you to improve your credit score tremendously.

Second, you should make a pause. The negative effects of bankruptcy and foreclosure tend to lessen over time. Instead of trying to apply for mortgage right after bankruptcy or foreclosure, wait a year or two. Your credit score will rise, allowing you to get better interest rate on your new mortgage.

Last, you should perform a heavy research of subprime lenders. Despite the mortgage crisis in the recent years, many lenders continue to finance bad credit home purchases, especially since the home prices dropped. Therefore, seek all possible options to get a low-cost mortgage: find subprime mortgage lenders online, get loan quotes, and select the one that features the best terms.

A bankruptcy or a foreclosure does not mean the end of borrowing. While obtaining a home loan with bad credit may be a significant stress, your bad credit would eventually go away, once you make timely payments on your new mortgage, allowing you to be more confident about your borrowing abilities again.

A Right Approach For A Beneficial Home Loan

Banks play a pivotal role in fulfilling this basic need. The products they offer and the services they provide are of immense use to people who intend to have their own house.

Know about the repayment Period: Choose an apt repayment schedule as per your financial status and possible future growth. Usually banks offer a tenure ranging from 1 to 25 years for home loans, and 1 to 15 years for mortgage loans.

Remember that bank will not take any responsibility about the legality of the property.

Technical evaluation: Banks evaluate the value of the property based on the standards set by their panel members. You should take all security measures against the deviations both horizontal and vertical which will affect loan processing as well as future transactions. If the property has deviations, you should ask the vendor for the copies of regularization. The property should have the necessary permissions or documents to regularize the deviations according to Building regularization scheme (BRS). Also, check all the details like plot area, sanction area, plot number and the government approved plan valid dates before going for a processing.

Home Loan Agreement: Please read the document carefully before signing it as it is a long term contract between the customer and the bank. Once you sign the document it can't be altered or modified until you repay the loan in all respects.

Registration: Home Loan processing ends with the registration of your dream property. Take care that the sale deed clearly states about your complete ownership of the property. Remember that even a small mistake can lead to bigger problems. So read the sale deed documents carefully prior to submitting for the registration process.

The vendee should collect all the link documents, Plan copies and tax Paid receipts from the vendor at the time of registration only.

Processing, pre-payment and foreclosure charges: The customers have to pay the processing charges to the bank for the loan availed. The customer should know about the additional charges which bank will make in cases of pre payments and foreclosures. A customer needs to pay a max of 4 % of the outstanding principle along with service tax towards the foreclosure charges of the loan.

Hard Inquiries To Credit History Are Not From A Cash Advance Lender

The effects of inquiries on credit scores are often confusing to consumers looking to build or rebuild their own credit. No credit check cash advance lenders pay no mind to credit scores while other types of lenders view the history. It ultimately affects the score in a negative manner. Overall understanding of the score and its effect on personal finances will only lend itself to continued improvements.

People are now getting the idea of how late payments and maxed out cards hurt their credit scores, but lack in the understanding of what inquiries represent. Inquiries are basically, people looking at your credit information. These people may represent current creditors or potential ones looking to examine your credit worthiness. Cash advance applications are not represented on the report since there is no credit check during the approval process. The credit bureaus keep record of money management skills on your credit report. This pertinent data reflects money management skills over the previous seven years. As old recorded information "falls off" the report, current reports are gathered. Credit worthiness analyzes this information; a critical decision factor for potential creditors and lenders. Current accounts make inquiries to ensure the accounts are updated.

If a person has been having trouble making payments, this information will be noted and negative effects will most often reflect the findings. Most consumers understand this aspect of credit scores quite well. What tends to continue to be confusing is the negative affect as a result of one of the inquiries. When a person monitors their own credit or a company looks in order to send a pre-qualification offer, there is no evidence trail to count against the report. Other inquiries are considered hard inquiries which leave a mark in two different ways. Their visit will be noted on the report from the particular credit bureau checked, but it will also take a point or two away from the total score.

*A creditor that checks Transunion will not see the inquiry from another creditor which used Experian.

*The inquiries stay for two years, but only the first year will negatively affect another creditor's outlook.

The inquiries project meaningful information for each viewer.

*A person looking into their own report will be able to see who has been viewing their history and when.

*It is an easy indication for others to see that a person has applied for new credit.

*for new credit.Many listed inquiries may be interpreted as someone desperate for money and will carry with it a negative flag for potential creditors.

*The more reports in a year, the less creditworthy the individual becomes. Many creditors will fear a larger risk of bankruptcy when six or more inquiries are made in less than a year.

*They are a great tool to track potential identity theft.

Since cash advances do no credit checks for approval, many consumers prefer this mode of lending when trying to protect not only their score but also their credit reputation. This short-term money option works well for those who have the income to support the quick payoff. Like any other default loan which is sold to collections, the mismanaged account will harm all three major credit bureau reports.

With no negative affect on the score, people should take advantage of the free reports from each of the major bureaus in order to view what others are seeing. Limit hard inquiries and manage current accounts to keep a positive stance on your credit history.

This is because once you have this basic skill, it will be a lot easier and quicker to understand the more complex areas of penny stocks trading. By the time you finish this article, you'll learn how to read stock market charts, especially if you are a beginner in trading.

The first thing to do is to find a good site on the internet where you can find free stock chart. Sites like yahoo finance, google finance,, etc. You do not need to register in order to access these free stock charts. The free stock chart helps you to predict the future of a particular penny stock, and have a clear picture of market trends.

The OHLC charts are the common type of free stock charts. OHLC simply means Open, High, Low, Close chart. The OHLC chart is divided into two - the plain vanilla and the candlestick chart. These charts contain the following basic information:
The time frame which could be in months, days, hours, or even minutes.
The high and low values of the period,
The volume story of the stock.
The opening and closing price.

Understanding the stock charts:

1. The volume bar

The volume of the stock is indicated by two vertical lines in the charts. One is at the bottom and the other is located a bit above it. Often there is a line at the lowermost part of the chart that corresponds to the one above. The lower bar is the volume of the stocks at a given point.

2. The High and Low Value Indicator

The bar (vertical) placed on top of the volume bar indicates the low and high values. The top part of the bar is the high value and the bottom part of the bar is the low value.

3. The Open and Close Marker

Some stock trading charts have short and stout bars with a thin line inside it. This thin line is called wick or tail. This is where the name candle stick is derived. The thin line or the wick signifies the low and high values, as explained above. The fat line, which also looks like a short bar covering the thin line, indicates the open and close values. To differentiate the open from the close, the bar is shaded. If it is filled with black (or red on some web sites), the close was lower than the open, so the top of the body indicates the open and the bottom marks the close. If the body is filled with white (or green on some sites) the close was higher than the open, so the top shows the closing point and the bottom is the open. The shadows are thin lines that extend above and below the body to show the range between the day's high and low.

However if a stock opened and closed at the same price there would be no body because there is no change in price. You will discover that there are different types of stock charts. Some are presented in line or bar graphs but once you understand the basics, you will be able to use the data they provide.

Car Leasing Basics

Over the past few years, the popularity of car leasing has soared. When you compare leasing with buying a car and suffering the humongous monthly installment fees, leasing provides a better and more viable financial option.

For auto leasing, you need to know the tricks of the trade so that you will not end up paying more than when you directly buy the car. There are car dealers and manufacturers who can give you your money's worth if you want to go for this option.

You will get a better deal out of the car dealers if you appear knowledgeable about the auto leasing industry, so read up.

'Auto Leasing Defined'

You would "lease" a car by paying for the costs by which the vehicle depreciates in value. You can calculate depreciation costs by subtracting the car's value by the time that the lease ends, from its original value. There are cars which depreciate more than other brands. The rule of thumb is, the smaller the amount that your car depreciates, the lesser the costs to lease.

Once you decide to go for leasing over buying a vehicle, you may choose the one with the least depreciation value.

If you decide to go for this option, you need to learn about "lease term". This is the number of months that the vehicle is leased. Typically, leases last for 24, 36 or 48 months, depending on your contract.

'Leasing or buying: Which option is kinder to your pocket?'

-Automobile leasing requires you to have a good credit, so if your credit score is low, it is better to go for buying.

You may even be disapproved for a lease if your credit history is not good. Or, at the very least, you will be required to pay higher monthly dues.

-Leasing companies would need to profit from you.

They will invest capital on buying the car, then lease that car out. Just like with any loan, their money shoudl earn interest so you better consider this as well when considering the advantages of buying.

-Make sure that you get the best deal out of car leasing by comparing the monthly costs with the interest rates of your local car dealer.

By making a note and comparing both prices, you would more or less have an idea of which option to go for.

'Car Leasing Tips'

- When deciding on the model or make of the car that you will lease, choose the Japanese and European cars. These are basically the brands which have lower depreciation rates, as compared to the American vehicles.

You will find out that most luxury cars have the lowest depreciation values. Research, visit a local car dealer in your area or ask friends who are currently leasing cars. They should have some great tips to share with you on how to get the best deal out of leasing cars.

-Leasing a car may put a big dent in yur budget when it comes to car maintenance. You need to make sure that you are a "car-friendly" user when you opt to go for auto leasing.

-Definitely go for leasing if you are the type who wants to own the latest cars in the market. In the long run, leasing will be a better option for you as compared to buying the latest car model then trading in or selling the old one that you have.

-As much as possible, choose a shorter lease period. This is so that you can optimize the warranty of the vehicle.

-Finally, avoid the long-term leases, because the car's value will decrease by the time the lease ends, and this is mostly when engine problems begin.
