Benefits of credit repair in San Diego

San Diego skyline

The average credit score in San Diego is 694, slightly higher than the national average of 675 and California’s average of 680.

For consumers considering an investment that requires a loan, credit score improvement can result in lower interest rates and higher credit lines. In San Diego’s competitive housing market, being better qualified for a mortgage can make a difference.

For those with past financial difficulties, credit repair might help regain creditworthiness. Credit repair services can help you dispute unverified items on your report relating to:

  • Foreclosures
  • Identity theft
  • Late payments
  • Bankruptcies
  • Charge-offs

Consumers have the right to review information in their credit reports. You can obtain one free copy of your credit report per year. If you find inaccurate information, you have the right to challenge it. You can write to the credit bureaus yourself, but a credit repair company can challenge reporting agencies on your behalf, for a fee.

How to get credit repair services in San Diego

The process typically begins with a free consultation, which some companies offer online. Depending on the level of service, the credit repair company will contact credit bureaus and collections agencies to dispute accounts that you think are inaccurate.

Make sure you understand your responsibilities if you enter into an agreement with a credit services organization. Most credit repair services in San Diego charge a monthly fee. Various levels of service, with accompanying fees, are suggested for different financial situations. Some services have a work start or enrollment charge.

Many credit repair companies offer online monitoring and send you reports in the mail. Cases are commonly handled by a team of representatives. Depending on your current credit score and other issues, the process can take from 45 days to six months. Building good credit history takes several months to a year.

A reputable credit services organization (CSO) will follow the laws set by the California Credit Services Act and the Credit Repair Organizations Act. CSOs must register with the California Department of Justice and file a surety bond with the California Secretary of State. The Better Business Bureau provides information for California consumers considering credit repair in San Diego.

The City of San Diego offers advice for spotting scams. Some warning signs that a company is not following the law:

  • Charging advance fees
  • Offering to remove negative yet accurate information
  • Suggesting that you obtain a “credit protection number”
  • Using an employee identification number to create a new credit record
  • Advertising a “quick fix” for credit problems
