Is Credit Repair legal?

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) gives you the right to dispute the accuracy of any item on a credit report. Credit bureaus have 30 - 45 days to verify the disputed item, or they must remove it. This process is the basis of credit repair.


Credit Bureaus make mistakes

Nearly 8 out of 10 Credit Reports have errors! It is no surprise that the three credit reporting agencies are often the top three most complained-about companies to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The vast majority of complaints involve errors in consumers’ credit reports. Credit report errors can come off quickly, usually after one dispute letter. You just need to know the rules.


Basic steps for credit repair - Using Credit Repair Cloud

Step 1

  • Your client orders reports from all three bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

  • The reports import into Credit Repair Cloud.

  • Together you identify all the items you wish to dispute.


Step 2

  • Send a dispute letter to each of the three credit bureaus.

  • Dispute up to 5 items on each letter within 30 days.

  • This is called Round 1.


Step 3

  • Within 30-45 days, the bureaus will respond with a letter explaining the outcome of each investigated item and indicate if the items have been deleted, corrected, or verified.

  • If your client has a credit monitoring subscription, you can re-import the results with one click using Credit Repair Cloud.

  • The results will determine your next steps.
