Bad credit is not a permanent situation. If you have negative entries on your report, its not too late to start repairing your credit history today. There are steps you can take to remove bad credit from your report and rebuild your credit.
Dispute Negative Information
If you think that the information in your report is inaccurate, you may dispute it with the credit bureau in writing. You must include all documents to support your claim.
The credit bureau must investigate the matter with the creditor. The investigation must be carried out within the alloted time. If the disputed information is found to be inaccurate, it must be deleted from your file.
Negotiate With Creditors
If you have negative items on your report that are indeed true you could talk with the creditors and arrange to get the derogatory entries removed from your report. By negotiating with a creditor which has reported negative information to a credit bureau, you may be able to get them to erase this information.
Add Positive Information
You can add positive credit information to your file by depositing a certain amount of money with a financial institution to serve as collateral for a loan or credit card, opening a charge account at a department store or even having someone with a good credit record to cosign on your application for a small loan.
