Credit Report And Correction Techniques

The three major credit bureaus, Experian, Equifax and Trans Union are similar and feature a "Credit Score", which is created from credit report data submitted to them about you. Their report includes where you live, your bill-paying habits, and bankruptcy and arrest information. The information compiled by them is used to determine whether you would be a good borrower. It may also be used by a business to decide whether you would be a good employee.

Credit report repair involves techniques for removing negative credit records from your credit report. These are the exact same methods credit score repair clinics and attorneys may charge up to $3,500 to perform. It is also possible to outsmart creditors who are damaging your credit score.

1. Many times the creditor does not re-verify in time or the credit bureau is busy and does not handle your dispute properly. This credit record must then be deleted from your credit report.

2. Every negative credit record on your credit report can be negated by you at any time. The credit bureau must reinvestigate and if that item cannot be verified within a reasonable amount of time, that credit record must be removed from the credit file (credit report).

3. Challenged credit record when challenged can be erased by mistake.

4. The credit bureau must prove each credit record on your credit report. If this is not possible, it must be stricken from the credit report. So, if the credit bureau cannot verify the credit record when investigated, it must be removed from your credit file (credit report) even if it is true.

5. It is possible that a very old credit records cannot be verified because records may no longer exist after 1 or 2 years on credit report.

Your credit score is important for obtaining credit. Your credit score is important to know, whether you need a new credit card, an auto loan, or a mortgage. Lenders use your credit scores to decide whether you are a good credit risk. If you have a high credit score, you are more likely to obtain the best rates.
