Finding the Best Credit Repair Services

Jul 1, 2008
With the economy being what it is, many people are looking for the best credit repair services that the market has to offer. There are more individuals than ever before seeking debt relief help and options to repair their credit. This has made the market ripe for businesses of this type to appear on every corner. As a result, you have to take extreme care when selecting a debt relief company or someone to help you repair your credit.

While there are many reliable credit repair organizations, with Lexington Law being one of the best, available to help you with your credit. But credit repair is something that you can do on your own and some of it you will have to do on your own.

You are the only one that can make your payments on time and payoff your consumer account balances. These are two things that will help get your credit back on track: on-time payments and credit card balances well below the limit.

The single one thing that will do the most to increase your credit score is the negative entries being removed. Before you can remove these entries you have to know what they are and that means you have to get a copy of your credit report. There are a number of ways you can get a free copy of your credit report. If you have been declined credit in the past 60 days, you can request your credit report from any of the 3 credit bureaus. It can also be gotten off the internet for free.

Once you get a copy of your credit report, it is time to look what is listed there. It will have a lot of things that may not apply to your credit, as such. It will have past employers and businesses that have run checks against your credit. Then there will be the listings of all your consumer accounts and any other types of accounts that you may have.

What you want to look for is information that is inaccurate and dispute that information. Invalid information ends up on credit reports more often than you may think. You will have to write letters to the credit bureaus and inform them that the information is incorrect. They will contact the lender and if it is not proven that the information is correct within a certain period of time, the credit bureau will remove it.

You can do this yourself, but some people will opt to have a credit repair service do this for a fee. Do not expect your credit to be perfect overnight. It did not get bad in one day and it will take time to fix.
