Credit Repair Kit

Author : Arthur Cooper

When you get injured you can always rely on a first aid kit to patch you up. When the hem of your favorite jeans comes undone, you can turn to your handy sewing kit. There is no reason why you shouldn’t have a repair kit for when your credit gets injured as well. Your credit is one of the most fragile things that affect your financial stability. Credit ratings can be hurt or helped, depending on what you do and don’t do. Since your credit rating is determined based on a number of variables, it can change with the slightest action or inaction. There are so many things that can pull your credit rating up or down so you have to be conscious of what is going on with your credit report.

If you have had a sudden injury or discovered that you have a life â€"threatening disease, getting the appropriate medical treatment has the potential to wipe out your savings and force you to depend on your credit cards. When something like this happens, your credit rating could end up dropping. Other issues that can lower your credit rating can also be beyond your control. If someone steals your identity and applies for credit cards in your name, without your consent, this could be a disaster for your credit. To have the damage undone so that you can get your credit back on track, you need to contact the authorities, creditors involved and the credit reporting agencies. The three major credit reporting agencies are Experian, TransUnion and Equifax.

A part of being financially responsible is staying on top of your credit report and knowing what is written there. No one else should be more interested in your credit than you are. If you have decided that you want to make a large purchase like a home or vehicle, it is important that you take a look at your credit report before the potential creditor does. This could mean the difference between you getting the loan or not. Taking a look at your credit report can possibly prevent you from being denied by a creditor because it will give you an opportunity to improve your credit. If you look at your credit report and notice an error or mistake on the part of a creditor or because of an identity thief, you can take steps to have these remarks removed so that they don’t affect your credit rating.

To contact the credit reporting agencies and creditors, you can send them a letter explaining what is wrong with your credit report and provide any additional documents that you need to prove that a remark is indeed an error. The templates from CreditElves give you a professionally formatted letter that just needs some information to be filled in. With one of these sample letters, you will be able to present your issue to the credit agencies and request that a change be made to your credit report. The agencies will reply to your letter within thirty days.
