Who Can Access Your Credit Report Or Score?

A credit score determines your creditworthiness. Credit bureaus like CIBIL, Equifax, and others generate a credit report based on your loan and repayment history. Typically, it ranges between 300-900, subject to change by the credit bureau based on various factors. The higher your credit score, the higher are your chances of loan approval. This article elaborates on who has access to your credit report in detail.

Who Has Access To Your Credit Score?

A common question among borrowers is, “if I require a good credit score to avail of any loan, who has access to my credit score?” A lender analyses your credit report when you apply for any loan. Below are the people and organisations who can access your credit report.

1. Potential Lenders:

Lenders perform a credit check when you apply for a loan, credit card, or other type of credit. Your credit report will help lenders determine your creditworthiness and authorize your loan accordingly.

2. Current Lenders:

If you have an ongoing loan and credit card, your lender may check your credit report periodically. It helps them decide whether to continue with their current credit terms or change them based on their credit history. Therefore, a healthy credit score is essential in the credit process.

3. Insurance Company:

These companies are gradually adapting creditworthiness models to calculate auto and life insurance premiums. Insurance premiums have multiplied and become a financial burden for many policyholders. Insurers, therefore, want to ensure that policyholders can afford to pay premiums regularly. They rely on your credit score to determine your credibility and ability to pay.
