Get a Free Credit Report & Credit Check

If you have a problem with your credit history or just want to find out what the credit reference agencies have on their files about you, you have a statutory right to access that information.

If you are looking at taking on a new credit card, loan or mortgage, its worthwhile checking that your credit file is up to date and accurate before you apply for the credit.

The information is now available easily online FREE once you’ve proved who you are. These agencies also offer more in depth credit file information and analysis online, but you may have to pay for it.

Accessing your basic credit report online is FREE from Experian and Equifax. If you want to write to obtain a copy of your credit report you can do so, if you send in a £2 fee, and proof of your address for the last 3 years.

Call Credit is another agency that can supply the information, but they currently make a charge for this online, and don’t currently provide the service by post.

Check each companies website to see what other information you need to include to get a quick response. Their contact details are:-
