A Balanced Credit Rating

A 3 Star Credit Rating is a result of a balance of negative and positive inputs. Click on any item for more detail.

Attributes are not equally weighted, some carry much more weight than others when calculating a Credit Score.

8% Chance of Entering Arrears

The chances of entering arrears on a credit agreement can be evaluated from a Credit Score as follows.

The higher the percentage, the more risk the lender is taking. This typically results in declined application if the lender has a low risk appetite, or higher borrowing costs.

Free Credit Score

Average UK Credit Score

An average UK adult, with typical circumstances and some credit history would have a Credit Score as follows.

750 out of 1000

What This Means

A three star credit rating is bang on what most people in the UK have - a major target group for most credit companies and sadly those most likely to receive large amounts of junk mail.

The majority of lenders will consider a Credit Score of 750 as a reasonable risk and in the absence of other factors, are relatively likely to lend money, however, depending on the information found when the Credit Report is checked, may charge slightly higher than average APR.

Each lender uses its own scorecard, sets it own "cut-off" score and applies its own set of lending rules, and often use your credit file from any one or all of the three credit reference agencies to help calculate your credit score which is why you can be declined by one lender but accepted by another.

How a Score of 750 Compares

When compared to the rest of the UK, a Credit Score of 750 is better than 50% of UK Residents.

One of the major factors in a credit scorecard relates to your stability - it has been proved statistically that the longer you live in a property and the longer you remain in a job, the less risky a prospect you are.

When many people reach their middle age and have growing children to support through education, their finances tend to get stretched.
