– Make a good track record in terms of credit. You never contracted loan or demonstrate your ability to repay? Your credit score is probably low. If you have a regular job and a stable address for at least one year, you may apply for a loan or a credit card and pay one or the other within the time limit in order to determine your creditworthiness. It is not necessary to take out large loans to build a good credit history. For example, you could have a credit card with a limit of $ 1,000, borrowed $ 100 on this one each month and then pay off the entire balance each month before the due date.
– Pay your bills on time. Payment of utility bills (telephone, electricity) is not part of your credit file, but some cell phone companies may report late payments to credit bureaus and thus reduce your score.
– Pay your bills in full by the due date and if this is not possible, then at least the minimum payment.
– Keep the balance of your loan at a lower threshold than the limit.
– Pay off your debts as quickly as possible.
– Avoid multiply credit applications. This sends the signal that you are looking for credit and you perhaps struggling to meet your financial obligations.
Who can see your credit report?
In principle, only those to whom you have given permission that have the right to see your credit report. Usually when you apply for a loan or credit card application, the future creditor requires that you complete a form with permission to access your credit report. Similarly, there may be an insurance company with which you want to want to see your business credit file. It is also possible that the owner of the property you want to rent request to see your credit report.
Warning: You are not required to accept that someone checks your credit file. You refuse, but insisted to check your ability to pay? He is the owner of the property you want to rent? Perhaps could you please provide a letter from the owner of your current home or a copy of your credit report (after having crossed some personal information)?
