Credit repair explained

Credit repair is a term used to describe the process of improving an individual’s credit report. This process is achieved through the removal or adjustment of incorrect negative credit listings from a person’s credit file. Cleaning up these listings may improve a person’s credit score, which is a score that is checked by credit lenders when someone applies for a loan.

With a better credit score, a person has a greater chance of securing a loan as they are deemed as more responsible borrowers. Another benefit of a clean credit file is the ability to obtain a loan with a lower interest rate.

What is my credit score?

A credit score is a score-based number that represents the information contained within your credit report. It is used by credit providers to asses whether you are a risky borrower. The higher the score the better and the more likely you are considered to be able to repay any credit borrowed, so more chance that you will be approved for a loan. To understand your credit score, you must be aware of the factors that impact your credit score.

From a legal point of view, there is no association between closing an account and the removal of a default. Paying off an account with a default will not remove the default from your credit report. Unfortunately, all your details regarding the closed account will remain on your credit file for lenders and credit bureaus to access. For more information on this, check out our article on paying off accounts with a default.
