How Your Credit Score Is Determined
A credit bureau is a data collection agency that gathers information about consumers from creditors. The three major credit bureaus are Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Each of these companies will calculate a credit score about you, which is a numerical expression between 300 and 850 designed to represent a person’s creditworthiness.
Your credit score, also referred to as a FICO score, is based on your payment history, how much money you owe, the length of your credit history, and the types of credit you have, such as car loans, mortgages, and credit card debt.
A higher credit score makes it easier for you to secure credit under favorable terms. When you borrow money, your credit scores from the three major bureaus largely determine:
- Your eligibility for credit
- The amount of interest you will pay
- The length of your repayment period
- Whether you will need someone to co-sign for a loan
What Causes Credit Reporting Errors?
When one or more of the credit bureaus make a mistake about your credit history, it can have a devastating impact on your credit score. These errors may result from:
- Flawed computations
- Inaccurate or incomplete information submitted by creditors
- Misapplication of bankruptcy rules
- Identity theft
- Being mixed up with someone who shares your name
- Agencies using expired information
How We Can Repair Your Credit Score
There are strict federal guidelines created to protect consumers from unfair credit practices. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) shields consumers from inaccurate credit information.
Under the FCRA, creditors, collection agencies, and credit bureaus can be held liable for negligently or willfully disseminating false information. In other words, you have the right to take legal action against people who carelessly damage your creditworthiness using false information.
If you’re having problems with bad information on your credit report, Hilltop Law Firm can help you fix the problem, and it won’t cost you anything. Here’s how we’ll do it:
- First, we’ll provide you with information on how to obtain a free credit report.
- Then we’ll check your credit report for errors.
- If we find any errors, we’ll send a letter asking the agency to resolve the matter.
- If the agency refuses to fix your credit errors, we’ll take them to court.
You won’t have to pay us for this service because the law requires the negligent party to cover your costs.
