Frequently Asked Questions

What is Credit?

“Credit” is the privilege to use the financial means of another party. When you apply to any financial institution for a loan, mortgage or credit card, you will need to provide evidence of the ability to repay, and a history of repaying past credit. You can get better terms with lower interest rates if you have good credit ratings, but with a poor credit rating, you may not get credit at any price. Building a good credit record is important to achieve many desirable goals, such as homeownership, vehicle financing, and various forms of wealth building.

What is credit repair?

Credit repair is the process of cleaning up inaccuracies on your credit report, removing wrong or inaccurate information, protect your identity and become more informed on your credit issues. If you repair your credit file, it is likely your credit score will improve, and thereby will obtain better interest rates and save money.

Why is there the need of repairing credit?

Because your credit record will influence your qualification for credit in the future, and could possibly affect rates for your current credit lines. Accordingly, if your credit report is incorrect, the reparation of the credit file will help improve your chances. A good credit score helps you obtain low interest rates and long term loans, like home loans or car loans. Lenders may charge high interest rates or impose undesirable repayment plans for you. Given the stakes and the consequences involved, it is clearly to your advantage to work toward recovering from a bad credit rating.

What do Credit Bureaus do?

Credit Bureaus are companies that maintain records of your credit lines and performance. Records go back seven years, and up to ten years, for bankruptcy data. Creditors, banks, mortgage companies and other financial institutions supply this information to the credit bureaus, and they compile them into a credit report. A credit report has details of how you have managed credit in the past, so other lenders can judge your credit worthiness. They tract the following information:

· Open accounts.
· Closed accounts.
· Credit limits.
· Current balances.
· History of on time and late payments.
· Collection actions.
· Tax and other liens

· Homeownership.
· Current address, and former addresses

What to do after getting my credit report?

Review your credit report carefully, and check for any negative information. If you find an error or omission, there are two ways to dispute them, either with the credit bureau, or with the creditor providing the information. Federal laws give you the right to challenge the accuracy of the credit report and to eliminate incorrect items. Credit Bureaus are required to investigate the items within 30 days..
