Preparing Your Information for Your Credit Report
When it comes to preparing information to be placed as commentary on your credit report in regard to information and data that is contained on that report, it is necessary for you to come up with a short and sweet way for you to convey this information in your credit report statements. You should avoid attacking the creditor. Rather, you should calmly set forth the specific information -- just the facts, as they say -- in regard to why you dispute of challenge certain information that is contained in the credit report, in regard to a particular credit report entry. In addition, you might want to explain your own set of circumstances in regard to bad credit marks on your credit report.
By way of example, let us assume for a moment that you had serious health problems. As a result, you not only racked up medical bills -- some of which remain unpaid -- but you were out of work for an extended period of time. As a result, you were not able to keep your other credit accounts current.
This explanation may in fact be helpful to a creditor from which you are seeking some sort of financing. It might be valuable to a landlord that you are seeking to rent from. In other words, it can provide a valid and understandable explanation as to why your credit history, your credit score and your credit report are not pristine at the present time. You can make it clear that the bad credit marks on your report are the result of isolated problems and not an ongoing pattern of behavior.
