Credit File




creditreport 150x94 Credit File

Check your Credit File issued by any of the three national credit reference agencies prior to applying for credit. Your Credit Files or credit reports are used by credit card issuers, banks, auto financing companies and other lenders to determine how you are as a credit risk. When you apply for credit or a loan, the lender will conduct a credit file check with a Credit Reference Agency to look for negative entries in your credit history. Consumers with good credit scores will have access to the top credit products and best borrowing rates. Conversely, a poor credit score or report can cost you thousands in interest payments and fees.

Such factors as your bill paying history (or whether you have paid your bills on time), your credit utilization ratio (that is, the percentage of your available credit that you are currently using) and the number of applications for credit will affect your credit scores.

Check your Credit Files online before you are turned down or pay more for a credit card or loan. Many of the Free Credit File offers come with a risk-free trial to a Credit Monitoring Service that alerts the consumer to changes in his or her credit rating.
