Terry hasn’t been able to obtain a credit card or car loan for quite some time. He is employed & making reasonable income, but is still turned down by every creditor.
While analyzing Terry’s credit bureau report, we found his score- 511 points, a number of collection accounts and a judgment still outstanding. We were able to settle his accounts at a percentage of their respective balances. We also assisted Terry in obtaining both a car lease (a brand new vehicle at 12%,) as well as a credit card, to begin his credit rehabilitation. In just 30 days of RECI working on Terry’s file, his credit bureau score was 550 points. In 9 months, the score was well over 640 points!
Lilly & Jake were discharged from a consumer proposal 2.5 years ago. However, their credit scores were sitting in mid 500′s when they first came to RECI.
Reviewing both credit profiles, we couldn’t help but notice numerous errors in the current records, Furthermore, the proposal itself was still showing a balance outstanding. We were able to acquire the appropriate documents and advise the credit bureaus accordingly. Both clients’ files have seen a significant point increase in less than 45 days. Nine months later both files read over 650 points!
Phillip’s 1st mortgage was due for a renewal at the end of a 5-year term. However, no bank was interested in his business as Phillip was still in the middle of a consumer proposal.
RECI assisted in arranging an early consumer proposal payout via a 2nd mortgage to obtain an absolute discharge. Once discharged, we assisted Phillip re-establishing his credit and obtaining a 1st mortgage through one of our broker partners. After 24 months of following the RECI program, Phillip was able to re-establish his credit as per CMHC (Canada’s Mortgage & Housing Corporation) guidelines and was able to qualify for the best bank rates again.
The Renners were a couple who were recently discharged from a consumer proposal. They hoped this would be the end of their financial complications. Unfortunately, they were left in a situation where they were unable to borrow any credit.
A trustee referred the Renners to us and we successfully updated their credit bureau reports to reflect their recent discharge. This included amended errors that were limiting their credit score improvement. We also obtained two new pieces of credit each, so they could both begin re-establishing as per CMHC guidelines for a home purchase in the near future.
