I am sure if you put your brain to it there would be a way to still make it appealing to the customer and not extend your risk, especially with a well written contract if you feel the need. Contract or not IMHO the most important thing is how you feel about the customer - are they a risk? If so and you do attempt this with them - then their cost should be higher correct. No different than the bank would treat you if you had missed payments on something and then was applying for a new loan. They might give you the loan - but at a higher rate. Risk vs reward for sure.
