Electoral Roll

Credit files once consisted only of a copy of the Electoral Roll, linked up with court records, so it's no surprise that it is still used as an 'index' record - the hook upon which most other data is filed away. So if lenders can't find you listed on the Electoral Roll, many will assume - not always correctly - that they haven't found your full credit file.

Are you correctly recorded on the Electoral Roll at all four UK Credit Reference Agencies?

Not being listed can result in being declined with some lenders, and with others, can result in delays in the processing of your application. Each credit reference agency uploads Electoral Roll data independently, so it's important to check that you are recorded correctly with all four.

The Electoral Roll is updated by your local authority between August and October every year - a process known as the 'annual canvass'. Credit reference agencies then buy this information from local authorities and load it to their own databases. This can take around 3 months. To ensure that the data that lenders access is always up-to-date, credit reference agencies also compile and maintain the "Rolling Register", which is a version that includes monthly updates taken from the notifications of people who move house between the annual canvasses. This can also be checked on your checkmyfile Multi Agency Credit Report.
