FULL CREDIT REPORT

The information on your credit report covers different aspects of your credit behaviour, so it's important to undertake a credit check regularly to identify and correct anything that may lead to a loan rejection.


Loan lenders usually know exactly what type of customer they're looking for, so a loan rejection can sometimes be beyond your control. Regularly checking your credit report for errors is one of the best ways to make yourself a more financially attractive customer.


You'll get a fully updated credit report four times per year (every qu arter) which will be available for download on your Client Zone.
