The 12 Parts to an Experian Credit Report

When you’re looking to purchase a new car or house, the lender will often require a credit report. A credit report is a compilation of your credit history – what debts you have incurred and how regularly you’ve paid them back. Lenders use this information to assess your risk as a borrower. But what exactly is included in an Experian credit report? Here are the 12 parts:

  1. Your personal information is included at the top of your credit report. Your personal information, such as name, gender, other names, driver’s license number, date of birth, employment history, and known homes
  2. The Experian Credit Score is a numerical score that determines how well you manage your credit. Your Experian Credit Score ranges from 0 to 1,000. The red boxes under “Your Credit Summary” show you the negative aspects that could be affecting your score. Information about defaults and late payments may be found farther down the report.
  3. This portion of the report provides information on current open accounts such as with credit providers and debt collectors that do not provide repayment history, as well as general financial details like income and assets.
  4. You may access your credit report for free once a year. When you make an inquiry with Equifax or TransUnion about your credit score, you will not receive a response in the form of a letter until after that date. -> If you want to know whether Experian has updated your file, send them an email at [email protected] and they’ll tell you if anything has changed. If there’s no change, don’t worry; it’s likely that any negative entries haven’t been used since then. However, if something new appears on this page (for example: debts incurred or paid off), it is most likely due to new information supplied by us or someone else who has accessed their data via our website (such as Equifax or Trans
  5. Experian Credit Reports contain credit accounts with revolving balances, including payment plan and retail installment sales (PIS) credit accounts. You’ll find information about the payments you’ve made in the last two years that have been reported by your credit providers to Experian here. It’s worth noting that not all of your credit providers will report your repayment history to us. Green ticks indicate that you paid on time for that month, while a number indicates missed payments for that month. If you’re more than seven months late, only seven green dots are shown instead of eight black squares.
  6. To access your Experian Credit Report, first select “See My Experian Credit Report” from its drop-down menu. Underneath you will find all of the available credit actions and their outcomes. default n: This section shows how much you owe or owed when the account was declared bankrupt or went through a debt settlement program, as well as whether it has been paid off in full. P = Paid S = Settled
  7. You will find information about serious credit infringements here, including any instances where your credit providers believe that you have committed or attempted fraud in applying for credit or evading your financial obligations, or that you have fraudulently evaded meeting your credit obligations. They’ve tried to contact you about this six months ago and haven’t been able to do so because of an inability to reach you.
  8. Your Commercial Credit History is part of your credit report is where you can find out more about the applications you’ve applied for, as well as your past and present business credit relationships, including a company credit card or trade credit account.
  9. The portion of your credit report that tells about your financial circumstances that are public knowledge is called Public Information. It includes information regarding whether you’ve been declared bankrupt or have had a successful court action taken against you.
  10. In addition, your Experian credit report will include personal statements. In certain situations, you can ask Experian to include a brief factually correct statement to your credit report, such as a possible compromise of your personal identity information. This will then be visible to any entity that has access to your credit report. It’s worth noting that if you’re concerned about someone stealing your identity, you should request a temporary ban on your credit report.
  11. Your Experian Credit Report includes records for each time Experian has accessed your credit report. These entries have no impact on your credit score because they are not recorded in this area of the report. This part is only used to show who has looked at your credit report. It’s possible that someone is checking their records against ours, and vice versa.
  12. From July 1, 2022, ‘financial hardship’ was added to protect consumers’ credit histories. You and your lender agree on a financial hardship arrangement to change your payments as a result of an inability to repay. During the term of the agreement, your credit report will include a payment arrangement “flag” next to that month’s repayment history data. Any financial hardship arrangements you made before July 1, 2022 will not be recorded in your credit report.
