Credit Repair, Learn More About It

Aug 17, 2007
Ok. Your mother and father taught you to always take care of your credit (at least mine did) and you shudder every time you think of them rambling on about "be careful with credit cards," "save your money," and "you might need a new car or home someday." Well, they're right, credit is important and sometimes we may forget it in our busy lives. So, what do we do if we find ourselves in need of credit repair? Many times you can solve the problem yourself, especially if you're on a budget. Doing it yourself can help you to feel better because you'll feel in control of what's going on in the process, and you can be sure to take care of each out of line item on your report.

Well how do we find out if we need credit repair? Well we need to get a copy of our credit report from those big scary companies that keep track of our credit information, that's the only way to really get started. It isn't too hard to do because you can get a copy of your credit report because federal law states you can get a copy every twelve months for free from the credit bureaus. You can contact the agencies to get it. All you need is your basic information like name, social security, address, and so on.

Now that you have your credit report you're going to go over it and see if there is anything on it needing credit repair attention. Do you see anything on there you don't recognize? Is there one of your credit items that shows you have paid late even though you're meticulous about your bill paying and it shouldn't be there? The good news is all of the credit bureaus make the credit repair process relatively easy because mistakes and errors on your report are pretty common. You can even contact your creditor directly about the error on your report or ask them why you have the item reported in error on your report, and then sometimes they will change what they've reported.

As you get used the steps needed for credit repair and can find the erroneous information on your report, you can send in a proper letter to get things rolling. This may seem obvious, but sometimes people forget to makes themselves copies of everything they're doing and keep it in a simple file. Don't be one of them that forgets! As you get your credit repair needs taken care of these large credit reporting bureaus get a ton of requests regularly and at times things can "get lost in the shuffle." So having your own copies or records can save you hassle and frustration. It of course makes you stay on task and makes things easy to follow up on.

So if you are getting rejected applications for credit cards, loans, mortgages and so on for things you really stand in need of, you need to find out what's going on. Credit shouldn't feel like a surprise or a gamble. You should know what's going on and pretty much know what credit you are worthy of obtaining. Doing credit repair should be pretty simple for the obvious for the easier repairs. You may want to consider a credit repair company if you have a big mess or if you have had major money management problems for a long time. Having the inaccurate or damaging information on your report fixed can be time consuming at times, but it will be well worth it when you need credit.
