Credit checks

Recommended Posts

Apparently I have bad credit. I'm only 20, the bank woman said it's probably previous residents blacklisting my address. Apparently there's some online thing you can do where you pay 2 pounds and you get a list of your debts or whatever. If there is anything (which I doubt there will be) I wanna pay it off straight.Anyone know the website?

mycreditreport.co.uk will sign you up free for 30daysu need your card details though, and you can see your report free and just cancel before 30dayshaving bad credit at 20 isnt bad. you have bare time to fix it. unlike tulse's mumif u see that you have no outstanding credit or late payments or nuffin then u write or phone themand sort it out so they fix the address defaults.

what will writing them do different then? unless you wanna be writing them every week. having an online account means you can check sh*t regularly. plus they will tell you anytime someone runs a credit check on you

If you use a credit card (only Visa or Mastercard), it's instant.Then you can cancel the free trial straight away, or wait 30 days then cancel it.If you use a debit card, they post a code to you which you then use online. So you'll have to wait.

P.S. They will not give you your credit score. That is separate and you'll have to pay a little extra (think it's around a fiver) to get that included.They will give you your "Credit Report". Which basically shows what credit lines you have open, if you've missed any payments, how much unused credit you have, how much you're using, and how much you could get.

also if they cant verify ur identity straight away (like ur not on the elctoral register/they cant verify you from the credit accounts you have) ull have to wait for them to send out a verification code to you so that could take a while
