They will add to your record details of the search and your application and this will be seen by other organisations that make similar searches. On occasion, we may request a credit check with more than one finance provider.
Information held about you by the credit reference agencies may already be linked to records relating to other people with whom you have a financial association. In connection with your application you may be treated as financially linked with them and assessed with reference to any such associated records. Searches may also be made in respect of directors and partners of firms applying for credit.
The credit reference agency will use a credit scoring system when assessing your application. They will also add to your record details of your agreement with the finance provider, specifically the payments you make under it, any default or failure to keep to its terms and any change of address you fail to inform of and where a repayment is overdue.
