£2 statutory credit reports now available online

The government has announced that consumers can now access their statutory credit report for £2 from each of the UK’s three credit agencies – Callcredit, Equifax and Experian.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has reached an agreement with CallCredit, Equifax and Experian that will allow people to access their credit reports swiftly and securely via the internet. Previously the reports were only available via post.

The credit reports enable people to check and monitor their financial commitments, including whether they have any County Court Judgments against them or late payments due.  (source Which?)
