Repair Your Credit--Click Here For Our Recommended Bad Credit Repair Service

Choosing a Credit Repair Specialist

You can improve your credit score. You can hire one of the credit repair companies to help you or you can do it yourself. There are legal techniques and there are illegal techniques. A reputable credit repair specialist will only offer to help you do what you could do on your own if you had the time, patience and knowledge.

Just because someone calls himself a credit repair specialist does not necessarily guarantee that he has a long list of qualifications. If he is not very good at what he does, then he probably will not stay in business very long, but you may not want to be one of his few customers. If you are thinking of hiring one of the many credit repair companies to help you improve or monitor your credit scores, check the company out first. Find out how long they have been in business and if they can provide you with the names of satisfied customers.

Credit repair companies which make unbelievable claims about how quickly they can improve your credit score may be suggesting something illegal or they may simply be exaggerating. Any reputable credit repair specialist knows that it takes time to improve credit scores. If there is inaccurate information on your credit report, correcting this information will improve your credit score, but this is not usually a “quick” process. The Federal Trade Commission advises that consumers should beware of credit repair companies which claim to be able to improve your credit score in a very short period of time. A couple of months is a reasonable amount of time to expect to see any results.

Some credit repair companies suggest that you dispute every negative item on your credit report. A reputable credit repair specialist will tell you that you should only dispute negative information that is questionable, outdated, unverifiable or inaccurate in some other way. The credit bureaus have the right to simply ignore disputes which they believe are frivolous. If you send them a letter disputing a large number of negative items and you have not been a victim of credit fraud, then they may simply ignore your letter.

At least one credit repair specialist has been known to say that the credit bureaus will probably not bother to investigate disputes. The major credit bureaus have systems in place to investigate disputes and it is highly unlikely that they will remove negative items without investigating. It is more likely that they would classify the dispute as frivolous. If they do happen to remove negative which are accurate, the company which originally supplied the information may simply report it again. So, even if you are successful in the short term, you may not be in the long run. Credit repair companies which claim otherwise are not being completely honest.

Negotiating with creditors is a legal technique to remove negative comments from your credit report. You can do this on your own or you can get help from a credit repair specialist. Sometimes a plan of action is all that you need. Reputable credit repair companies can provide you with a plan and many offer other valuable services. Identity theft insurance and credit monitoring services may not improve your credit score, but they could protect you from fraud.

Some credit repair companies are associated with law firms and while this inspires confidence in the legalities of the services offered, it is still a good idea to pick one that has been in business for a while, has a list of satisfied clients and does not make outrageous claims. Choosing a credit repair specialist which is a lawyer, a paralegal or has other qualifications is a better idea than picking one at random.

Collection agencies often put adverse comments on people's credit reports with no way to contact them to try to clear up the problem. Often people don't find out about the adverse listings until they need to buy or refinance a home and the lender demands that the debt be paid before a new loan is made. Locating the company they need to contact the matter can be time consuming and often extremely difficult.

Here is a website that has thousands of collection agencies listed with complete contact information.

A credit repair specialist is hired to help clients improve their credit scores. He can work independently or as part of a larger firm. There are several services a specialist provides, many of which are fee based. However, his primary service is to work as a liaison between clients and credit bureaus. Many specialists earn a college degree in a finance related field. Some choose to receive training from a third party credit repair training program, while others receive on-the-job training. Depending upon the state, credit repair specialists might also need a state-issued license before offering services to the public.
If a client disputes the validity of a debt, the specialist will contact the credit bureau to file a dispute. This dispute is submitted as a written legal challenge. If the credit bureau is unable to prove the debt is valid within 30 days of receiving the written challenge, the specialist makes a request to have the debt removed.
