What causes adverse credit?

There are a number of factors that contribute to your credit score, some of the most common reasons people have poor credit ratings include:

  • Missing a loan, credit card or mortgage payment
  • Having an ongoing loan with a payday loan provider
  • Being declared bankrupt or entering into an individual voluntary arrangement (IVA)

It’s also worth noting that if you have never taken out credit for anything, you may well find yourself being rejected for certain finance items – because you haven’t yet built up a record of credit.

How do I know if I have adverse credit?

There are a number of tools online that can be used to measure your credit score.  The ones frequently used by lenders that you can check yourself are Experian, Equifax, and Callcredit.

It is important to note that by using one of the credit checking tools above you will leave a “footprint” on your credit report in the form of an inquiry.  This will however not negatively affect your credit score.
