Q: Unfortunately, my credit history isn't pretty. I'm thinking about leasing a new car rather than buying. Will they look at my credit?
A: While you work on achieving healthier credit
, the company you lease a car from expects you to make regular payments against the cost of the car they're providing. If the dealer sees a spotty payment record or too many outstanding financial obligations, they may not be willing to lease to you. Start by checking your credit report for inaccurate information you can dispute and then build from there to work toward healthier credit.
