What is Credit File Repair?

Simply put, if the credit file listing has not been added fairly, has been added incorrectly, or you believe it should not be there at all, then there is a strong chance it can be removed.

If you make an application for finance, being loans, credit cards, mortgages, etc. your credit file is likely to be checked by the finance company or lender to verify you meet their lending conditions. The sorts of things that are recorded on your credit file can and most often do include:, the number of times you have applied for credit, the type of finance you applied for and the dollar amount of the loan you applied for.

There are 4 Credit Reporting Agencies in Australia. They are:

Equifax has the largest Consumer database of these Credit Reporting Agencies with an estimated 19,500,000 credit files or more.

In 2004 Catherine Wolthuinzen was the financial policy officer for the Australian Consumers Association (Now CHOICE Magazine) and she found that on a study of 50 subjects, 34% contained errors.

A similar study was conducted in 2015. In January 2016, ASIC published a paper revealing the error rate remains similar some 12 years later.
This could mean that your credit file has a one in three chance of having errors you don’t even know about.

(Default listings that are incorrect are legally entitled to be removed)
