What type of information does Crediva hold?

Crediva receives public information from a range of sources. Local councils provide Electoral Roll records; the Registry Trust passes on records of County Court Judgments and the Insolvency Service shares bankruptcy and IVA information.

Crediva also provides supplementary data in addition to your Credit Report. This includes entries from Financial Sanction, Politically Exposed Persons, and Death Register records. While this information is strictly separate from your Credit Report, lenders will still check these databases to ensure legal compliance before extending credit to you.

In addition to providing credit referencing services, Crediva specialises in alternative credit scoring models to improve traditional risk analysis.
