How Can I Improve My Credit Rating FAQ

How Can I Improve My Credit Rating?

Secured Loans > Our Loans > Bad Credit Loans > How can I improve my credit rating

You could improve your credit rating in a number of ways. One is to pay off loans on time and in full.

Improving your credit rating is about showing good financial habits. Use your credit card but pay the balance on time – along with all your other bills.

Register on the electoral roll and close any unused credit cards and other accounts. Also, be mindful that any new accounts you open may affect your credit rating.

  • Make loan repayments on time and in full
  • Use your credit card but pay the balance on time – along with all your other bills
  • Register on the electoral roll
  • Close unused credit cards and other acccounts

Making your agreed loan repayments on time and in full each month can be one of the most effective ways to improve your credit rating. If you are struggling with multiple monthly loan repayments, you may wish to consider whether a debt consolidation loan could help you better manage your payments.

Register on the electoral roll – this helps lenders verify your address. Closing unused credit cards and other accounts could also help to improve your credit rating; this will reduce the amount of credit you have access to. While you may not owe money to these old accounts, in the eyes of prospective lenders, there is the potential to borrow more money.

However, bear in mind taking out any new loan may also affect your credit rating (though the effect may only be temporary).

Warning: Late payment can cause you serious money problems. For help, go to moneyadviceservice.org.uk
