Some helpful things to know
'credit history' mean?
Whether you've taken out lots of credit before, or just a little, your credit history shows all the payments you've made towards things like loans, car finance plans and mobile contracts. And it also shows any payments that you might have missed.
Banks or lenders may look for a strong history of credit to decide you're a safe choice to lend to.
It takes time to build a credit history (this is a marathon, not a sprint). But Loqbox Rent can help build your credit history by reporting your regular rent payments to Experian every month.
How is my credit history different to my credit score?
Your credit score is essentially a number that represents the strength of your credit history. It’s a way for us (the public) to understand how a lender or bank may view us. It helps to give a general idea of how creditworthy we are.
There are three main credit reference agencies in the UK — Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. Each uses its own scoring system, so you’ll likely have three different credit scores.
But fundamentally, what you need is a history of good credit management to show lenders you can be trusted to handle credit well again.
What if my
Whether that's your landlord changing the rent price, or if it's the end of your tenancy agreement — just let us know and we'll take action.
We're on your side! Our goal is to help you build your credit history, not diminish it. With Loqbox Rent, you can build your credit history the stress-free way.
Why do you only report to Experian?
We know that sometimes life goes a little off-track — it could be that your rent price might change, a bank transfer might fail or you move house.
We report to Experian because they offer flexibility if anything does go a little wrong. And we'll make sure that it won't negatively affect your credit history. It's a win-win with Loqbox Rent!
