  • Keep in mind that you are expected to repay your loan with interest.
  • Make sure to read all loan documents carefully before signing them.
  • Carefully consider all of the terms of any loan before borrowing and ask questions about any terms or concepts you do not understand.
  • Keep all your loan documents in one file.
  • Keep track of payments and how much is owed.
  • Make your payments on time to avoid any extra fees.
  • Make sure to respond to all lender notices or telephone calls. Let the lender know if you are having issues so they can work with you.
