Credit Repair Securing Bona Fide Credit Report

Aug 17, 2007
Bad credit can dishearten you in many ways. You will receive setbacks in your securing of mortgages, car loans and credit cards. Most lenders will be hesitant towards granting loans and credit to you. Your loan application may even be turned down by some. Others may provide loans/credit to you but you will be made to pay higher interest rates of repayment and higher fees. So, you are disadvantaged everywhere. There is little you can do to improve the perception of lenders and creditors about you unless you take crucial credit repairing steps and wait for the tide to turn in your favor.

Firstly you need to thoroughly check your credit report as supplied from the tri bureaus (the three national credit rating agencies). Wrong entries and errors are quite common in credit reports. So, you need to verify all accounts listed and all details about your finances and accounts provided. In case of any error you are to immediately report to the concerned creditors and get it rectified. Then you should also notify the credit rating agencies to take note of the changes. This will restore the bona fide status of your report if it had been tarnished earlier due to mistakes in entry.

In order to repair a genuinely poor credit situation you need to start paying all your bills on time and avoiding late payments. Then you can reduce the number of credit cards carried by you. This can be done by closing down the accounts of the old credit cards not in use. The changed account status after closing of the credit cards is to be reported to the three credit reporting agencies.

Remember to avoid bankruptcies, tax liens and collections at any cost. Some steps to reestablish credit may be taken too. A secured credit card may be obtained and an amount may be designated to be kept there which will suffice in covering your charges. Making timely payments here will help reestablish credit. You need to make sure that all your outstanding accounts are settled.

Follow the right approach to credit repair and persevere. It is to be borne in mind that despite undertaking drastic positive steps the negative indications which have rightfully found in your credit report at some recent time will remain in the report for a number of years. Bankruptcy records in credit report remain for up to ten years and collection accounts and paid tax liens remain for seven years.

But such facts should not deter you from taking credit repair measures. In any case if you do not take steps to reestablish your credit then your credit situation will only worsen further. So, you need to take heart and embark on a credit repair mission without delay. Credit repair measures do help reestablish your credit and enable you to be the holder of a bona fide credit report in the long run.
