Credit Reference and Fraud Prevention Agencies
- Credit Reference Agencies (“CRAs”)
1) From time to time we undertake credit reference checks against Borrowers and Investors (and against directors, partners, members, shareholders and beneficial owners of Borrowers and Investors), guarantors and Agents:
- as part of the loan application process; and
- - if there are late repayments or default.
2. When CRAs receive a search request from rebuildingsociety they will:
- place a search footprint on your credit file that may be seen by other lenders. They supply to us both public (including the electoral register) and shared credit and fraud prevention information. This search may occur regardless of whether a loan application proceeds or not.
- - place an enquiry or organisational search on the personal credit files of directors, partners, members, beneficial owners and shareholders that have been searched, as well as an associate enquiry search on your personal financial partner’s credit file, if they are a director;
- - link together the previous and subsequent names advised by you of anyone that is a party to the account;
- - place an enquiry or identification search on the record of any shareholder or beneficial owner and who rebuildingsociety has checked; and
- - create a record of the name and address of your business and its proprietors (if there is not one already).
3. We will give details of all loans taken through the marketplace and how they are managed to the CRAs. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, the CRAs will record the outstanding debt and, in some cases, the length of time that the debt remains outstanding; other organisations may see these updates and this affect your ability to obtain credit in the future.
4. Any records shared with CRAs will remain on file for six years after your account is closed, whether any outstanding sums have been settled by you or following a default.
5. You can contact the CRAs currently operating in the UK; the information they hold may not be the same so it is worth contacting them all. They will charge you a small statutory fee.
