Make sure you regularly monitor your credit report and check that all your information is up to date, including your payment history, credit accounts, debt review or judgments. If there’s any incorrect or missing information on your report, contact the lender and ask them to send the updated information to the credit bureaus (Experian, Transunion, Compuscan and XDS).
