Anyone planning to use credit in the future may benefit from credit repair services. These companies can remove inaccurate or unverifiable information from your credit report, such as collections activity, bankruptcies, repossessions and more.

Credit repair in Cleveland begins with the company obtaining your credit report from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Upon reviewing the bureaus’ reports, the company gives you expectations and a plan of action. The company then contacts the credit reporting bureaus and individual creditors or collectors regarding the negative marks.

The Credit Repair Organizations Act prohibits companies from making claims about how quickly they can improve your credit. The process may last several months or take up to a year.

The cost for this service is a mix of initial and ongoing fees. Initial setup fees may range from $59 to $250. Monthly costs of $49 to $89 can follow. Some companies structure ongoing costs per item removed from bureau reports, such as $10 to $70 per removal of a late payment or collections listing.

Some credit repair companies in Cleveland assign customers a specific case manager or credit representative. Others can get general support by phone, email or through chat features on the company’s website.

Credit repair companies are prohibited from making guarantees or requiring payments prior to performing service. The Federal Trade Commission advises consumers to look out for deceptive or fraudulent credit repair companies. They recommend avoiding any organization that asks for a large fee in advance, suggests you assume an alternate identity or states they will contest all derogatory information in your credit history regardless of validity.
