Credit data used by lenders goes back too far and needlessly penalises people

This petition had 33 supporters


At present whenever one applies for a loan, mortgage or credit they are usually credit scored and the credit references agencies go back 6 years - 72 months 

This means if you missed a mortgage payment 70 months ago and have been up straight since you could be declined or have special terms applied - usually a higher interest rate !

This is grossly unfair and lenders should be forced to look at only the last 3 when making a lending decision 

What bearing does it have if you missed a phone or credit card payment for whatever reason 5 years ago ?
