An incorrect or bad credit report can hinder you from availing a loan. A single false information or transaction can spoil your creditworthiness thus affecting your ability to buy a car, a home or even a credit card. Lenders can refuse to process your application because of a bad account. Creditors are not the only ones looking at your credit history. Other people seek your credit report too. These include property dealers, infrastructure companies and potential employers. You may be denied a job just because your credit history seems bad.

Why review a credit report regularly?

  • For credit monitoring: Consumers should monitor their financial history for variety of reasons including preparing to purchase a home, a new car, or even when applying for a new job. They should use it to keep a track of their unpaid debts. This report will contain information regarding your loan payment history. From it, you will know what things you have to fix in order to improve your credit rating. It will help you maintain a better record of your financial dealings.
  • For correcting errors: Despite the fact that a credit report is updated regularly, you should check it meticulously and not assume that everything contained in it is correct. You should do some proof reading from your side as well. Ensure that every financial detail is correct. If you find any incorrect information, report it to the concerned person immediately.
