CREDIT scores are three-digit numbers that reflect your past six years and the higher they are, the better. Creditors will browse one or more of the three credit bureaus - Experian, Equifax and CallCredit - each and every times you submit a credit application to evaluate your eligibility.

Whilst it is clear that failure to comply with a credit or registration of a judgement of the District Court against you will have a major influence on this scoring, even apparently small mistakes - such as delayed credit cards - can have a negative one. Early this year, the Bureau of Mortgages Advice unveiled that at least two-thirds of those considering seeking a home credit do not know their creditworthiness and that 25- to 34-year-olds are most likely to be affected by poor creditworthiness or low creditworthiness.

It is important to get your credit scores and reports before you apply for more credit, and you can do this free of charge on Noddle, ClearScore and Experianline. Equipped with this know-how, you have the possibility to begin with the improvement of your creditworthiness if required. Inclusion on the voters' list is an easier way to boost your credit rating," says Experian's James Jones.

Creditors like timeliness because it shows that borrower can successfully handle their debt. If you miss a transaction or even delay it by a single tag, it can affect your credit rating, so make sure that all your periodic direct debit transactions are made on schedule. Studies published by Noddle last weekend show that more than every third person - especially under 35 - is a virgin.

They won't be able to show how smart you are with your cash if your credit record is very tight, so Jacqueline Dewey of Noddle suggests using a credit cards to get on the creditors. Ensure that all detail in the credit agency report is accurate, as mistakes can negatively affect your credit value.

They have the right to correct errors, so please consult the creditor and the agent and ask them to update the account. You are also allowed to attach a correction notice that is viewable by businesses looking through your credit histories to illustrate extenuating conditions - for example, if a settlement was delayed due to sickness.

Too frequent a move can sometimes be a poor signal for creditors who favour those who have been living at the same place for some time," says Jacqueline Dewey of Noddle. Obviously, the number of times you need to update your home may be outside your control if you have been notified by a number of lessors, but if possible, try to postpone your next move until you have requested and approved a credit, mortgages or other type of credit.

Whenever you request a loan, a quest is logged in your credit reports. Certain uses - such as for car insurances - are software queries that are not viewable to other creditors, but others - such as for a credit car or home loan - are tough queries and are viewable.

Tough quests remain in your reports for 12 month and too many job openings (even if rejected) can make you look overly reliable on credit, so try to keep them to a bare minimum. Avoid the risk of a bad job. When you' re about to rent a house, you can increase your credit rating by registering with, a free online payment sharing facility that provides Experian with your periodic payment information.

It' simple to setup and you will be awarded a higher credit rating - just like mortgages are - as long as the rental is payed on schedule. Creditors always take into account how financial you are and using a large proportion of all your available credit or, even more importantly, overrunning your credit line will mean that you cannot finance additional debts.

The reduction in credit and debit card balances indicates good monetary control and you will have a better perspective.
