  1. I was going for an administration job and reached the second stage of the recruitment/interview process, when the company suddenly turned around and stated that I would have to undergo a credit check. I have been having a few debt problems on the count of my recent divorce from my ex-partner and had to take out a myriad of loans to keep my family home with 2 young children from going under. The company realised my bad credit score and in the end did not offer me the job because of it. I am struggling to pay my rent on the low income job that I am currently doing which I have been i
  2. Hi everyone I need some urgent advice, any opinions really appreciated. Here is my situation: I currently own a property with a single mortgage with Intelligent Finance. I am buying a new property and converting my mortgage to a Joint mortgage with my partner. We have had our offer on the new house accepted. We have both checked our credit reports with Experian and Equifax. Our scores with Experian are 971 and 999 respectively. With Equifax are scores are in the 'Good' and 'Excellent' range. HOWEVER, we have realised that my partner is not, and has never been, on the E
  3. Hi, This has been mentioned before by people and appears to be a fairly widespread issue for many seeking employment that have less-than-perfect credit, such as myself. After reading thread: 138485 Credit check to get a job I decided to do a search for an e-petition. A poster within that thread states that the FSA do not require a credit check for an employee unless they need to be an approved person with the FSA. An approved person is usually a person doing a controlled function within a financial firm such as a director or a person giving financial advice. As a result of this, man
  4. Hi there.. I would like to get some advice in regards to a Vodafone UK problem which seemed to be unresolved after 4 months despite taking the necessary steps/actions as advised/recommended by Vodafone. I feel extorted by them as I am the one to bear the brunt for their mistakes yet I am having to continue to pay them £26 / month. Below is a chronological order of the events. Late-October / Early-November 2011 (1) I attempted to take ownership of my friend's Vodafone account (contract expiring Nov 2012) but my application was unsuccessful due to a failed credit check. I aske
  5. I routinely check out companies that telepest me and looky looky here: Can anyone spot the problem?
  6. Hi all; thanks for taking the time to read this. We are looking to move to a new town, and by reasons of luck and chance, we've never rented with an agency before. We've found a home we like, but it's with an agency and they are requiring a £200 credit check before advancing our application. My husband is baulking at the cost. Is there any way to get a credit check independently and hand it over to them, or is that pointless? Is an expensive credit check something we just have to accept? Thanks.
