Credit Scoring

Like many lenders we use credit data to help us make decisions and we recommend that you check your credit score online, for example with a credit bureau, to view the records held, and to check your data correctly reflects your circumstances and credit history. You may also find the information they provide on how to improve your credit score useful.
