Make sure your credit report is accurate and up to date
Your credit report summarizes your credit history, and it’s what lenders look at when they size up your credit application.
So it’s important to make sure that the data and information on it is accurate and up-to-date, to give yourself the best chance of getting the deals you want – and at the rates you want. Missed or late payments, different ways of listing your name and address, financial links to other people can all have an impact. Getting it right could help you to understand, protect and improve your finances.
The Experian Credit Score is a guide to help you understand your credit report, and how lenders might see your credit history. It can help you keep an eye on your progress before you next apply for credit.
You can get help finding finance deals that suit your credit profile, and see your credit report and Experian Credit Score whenever you want, with a 30-day trial of Experian CreditExpert.*
*A Monthly fee of £14.99 applies after your trial. You may cancel during your 30 day trial without charge. 30 day free trial available to new customers only. Trial period starts on registration – further ID verification may be required to access the full service which may take up to 5 days.
