Don’t neglect your credit report!

 Not checking your credit report can have dire consequences. Never neglect your credit report.

Your credit report is one of the most vital aspects to successfully obtaining finance or credit.

Common sense tells us we should make sure our credit history is in tact prior to submitting a finance application, right?

However we tend to think it will all be okay and just go ahead and submit an application in the excitement of the moment.

Applying for finance can make us think differently. Our emotions change.

This can lead to you to an unintentional decision where you neglect your credit report.

It is critical that your credit report is intact before you submit any finance applications.

If you don’t it could literally cost you thousands of dollars in interest with a mortgage where you are forced to accept finance from a second tier lender.

Never neglect your credit report. Gather the courage to check first and be prepared. Better that you find out if any adverse entries exist rather than have a lender tell you when they decline your finance request.

Especially people who are certain that they have a good credit report get the biggest surprises. Mistakes can be made on your credit report, meaning its not your fault and the entry could be incorrect. But a lender will make you go away and clear that up first.

There are many articles with classic examples of this on the internet.

Don’t neglect your credit report by sticking your head in the sand. This could lead to ultimate disappointment. Check your file sooner rather than later.

How do I get my credit score?

You can get your credit score together with a copy of your Equifax credit report.

A free copy of your Veda report is available once a year from Equifax or you can order additional copies by express service for a fee.

Equifax is the premier provider of credit reports in Australia.

All major lenders use Equifax and the Equifax score product is the bench mark used in the lending industry within Australia.

There are different versions of an Equifax credit file available so make sure you obtain one with a credit score attached.

Every lender is different with what they consider an acceptable score so there is no set “good credit score”.

Your credit score is used in conjunction with other aspects and information on a finance application.

A credit score is not to be considered the primary reason why finance is approved or declined.
