Credit Reports and Experian Boost
In our new podcast episode we tackle the subject of credit reports and credit scores.
After appearing on BBC Essex in May 2021, Sarah had a lady come on the radio to ask lots of questions about credit reports and what they mean. It was clear that there is a lack of information out there to help you know what to do with your credit report, and why you need it!
So let The Mortgage Mum break it down for you….
There are 3 credit agencies – Experian, Equifax and Transunion (was Callcredit).
Each agency records details of your active and closed credit (bank accounts, credit cards, loans) and stores it in a report. The combination of data gives you a credit score.
Mortgage lenders generally use this data, and your score, to determine your risk as a client.
Each mortgage lender refers to different agencies, or a combination of them. As brokers – we know this information and it can make ALL the difference between you getting a mortgage approved, or not.
Not enough people are checking their report regularly.
There are sometimes incorrect data on your report, or accounts that should be closed – being aware of your credit report and score is super important!
The reports give us a full picture of someone’s credit, and how they use it.
This episode will educate you and hopefully inspire you to become more credit aware. We can’t wait for you to get your own reports regularly, and let us know here at The Mortgage Mum of any surprising findings you have!
As always, Sarah aims to break this information down in a way that you will understand.
