  1. Hi there, From my research the only times the co-op refer an application for the Cashminder account is if you have a CIFAS warning on your credit file or (I think) if you are an active bankrupt. Have you checked your credit file?
  2. Did you request credit info from all of your addresses for the last 6 years? Have you missed any payments at all over the last few years?
  3. That can be the problem, sometimes they do credit searches even though they shouldn't. If that has happened you are entitled to have them changed to unrecorded or removed. Again, I advise checking your file to see what has happened.
  4. I agree with Buzby. There are two types of searches that can be done on a credit file: unrecorded and credit. A unrecorded enquiry is usually done to confirm a persons identity and is not visible to other potential creditors. A credit search IS visible to other creditors and is detrimental to a persons credit file as each search is classed as a credit application. Debt collection agencies have a very nasty habit of logging numerous CREDIT searches on peoples file knowing the effect it will have on that individuals credit score. I suggest firstly you check which type of search has been u
  5. Missing payments to credit cards or loans has a negative impact on your credit score, so this may be the reason for your wife's low CRA score. Regarding your defaults, that may also be having an affect. Do you have a joint current account, joint mortgage, joint credit cards or have previously applied for credit jointly? If so there is a 'financial association' between the two of you. If this is the case then lenders may also search your credit record as part of any lending decision. Hope this helps.
  6. Hi Jude, how did the stopping smoking go?
  7. Hi Raven Did Bcard issue a default notice on you before you set up the arrangement to pay?
  8. Hi Smiffy66, Did you get the score from Equifax/Experian? If so that is just their interpretation of your credit score. Individual lenders will have their own criteria against which you will be scored. Having said that 569 is quite low. Do you have defaults, CCJ's or missed payments on your record? If so it is likely the high street banks would decline your application
  9. 45002, I fail to see how your comment helps a genuine enquiry from someone looking for help.
  10. I agree that as you have waited this long you may as well stick it out. My final default automatically disappeared from my file last week six years and one day after being entered. 8)
  11. You just need to be sure that the organisation you are applying to is not 'related' to the organisation you owed money to (i.e. RBS and Natwest are part of the same group and therefore may share information on old debtors)
  12. Hi Browsing, There is a correlation between people requesting their credit file and increased DCA's activity. As part of DCA tracing activities they can pay to have a marker on people's credit files so they are notified if a request for information is received.
  13. Hi Broccoli_green Whilst showing that you are paying your debts is seen to be good , a default is considered to be as bad as a CCJ as far as creditors are concerned. Once a default is on your file it stays there for 6 years (the same as a CCJ) whether it is paid in full or partially paid unless it was placed in error. Dink dink is right to say the effects of the default do diminish over time (i.e. your credit score increases) but this takes years not months to happen.

  15. It seems unusual for a Landlord/Letting Agent to re-reference a tenant without reason, have you had any other issues with them?
