What is a Credit Score?Despite what is probably common belief, people do not have just one unique credit score,they vary for each individual as there are many credit agencies who have their own method of scoring. Common ones include Experian and Equifax, these agencies keep detailed records on peoples credit history from information given to them by your lenders. This includes how much outstanding debts you may have as well as if you pay your credit commitments on time. Loan lenders and providers have access to this data, often know as a credit report and when you apply for finance from them they will carry out a credit check through their preferred credit agency. If you want to see your credit report you do not need to subscribe to any monthly long term arrangement. By law you have the right to be provided your Statutory Credit Report for £2. So simply write to the agency of your choice at the address below stating you want a copy of your credit report and enclose a cheque for two pounds (to either `Experian limited` or `Equifax Credit File Advice Centre` and they will happily send it to you. After all it is your credit file.

It is important to note that all the different lenders have different criteria and your score may be accepted by some and not by other based on how you meet their specific more detailed lending criteria. I.E. It is not all about the score. So if you have been refused in the past this may not mean you have a bad credit rating, but you have just unfortunately applied to the wrong lender. Beware of making multiple applications and allowing companies to do multiple credit searches on you (read the small print before you apply anywhere on line), this can have a significantly negative impact on your credit score. Fortunately some of our lenders do not use a score method at all and accept loans based purely on their own rules.
Secured Loan Options For HomeownersFirst Choice Finance have a panel of secured loan lenders to choose from and our underwriters are experts at matching clients to the right lender ensuring that you have the best possible chance of being accepted and avoiding disruption and disappointment. Unlike most comparison sites, if you meet our lenders requirements we will handle your secured loan application from start to finish, answering any questions you may have, and liaising with the lender on your behalf to get your money to you when you need it. To qualify for a secured loan you will need to be a homeowner / mortgage payer and have some equity in your property. These loans are secured on your home and carry the same risks as a mortgage in the even of failing to meet your payment commitments.
Other Outstanding Debts & Secured LoansIf you have existing debts we may be able to consolidate these into your loan to help simplify your finances and possibly reducing your monthly outgoings, even if you have missed payments on your credit cards, store cards, personal loans or even incurred mortgage arrears we could still help.
