Kate Answers: Protect And Improve Credit Rating
Hi Jack, It is smart to pay your mortgage first to protect and improve your credit rating. Then pay your credit cards. Credit card debt is generally not a lien on your house. This can vary so contact your credit card company for clarification.
Now here's what I would do. I'd pay my mortgage every month without fail. Then I'd make minimum payment on my credit cards. This way, my mortgage rating will not suffer, I would avoid foreclosure and keep my house and credit cards.
But what if I could not maintain minimum-only payments on my credit card debt? I'd ask the credit card company if they could negotiate a deal with me to make my minimum payments more affordable.
