If there is an error in your credit report, you must contact the particular Credit Reporting Agency that issued the report and provide them with correct information, in writing and, if possible, with supporting documentation.

This depends on what is wrong with your credit report. If you have accounts sent to collections, then you need to pay them off and wait for seven years for them to drop off your credit report. If you have late payments, start paying on time each and every month. If you are using more than 30% of your available credit, then pay off some of your debt until you are below 30%. Those are just some of the many ways to "fix" your credit.

The book "Fix Your Credit Report" is available in stores like Barnes & Noble and available on websites like Amazon. Plus, there's an e-book version of this title.

It won't fix it, but paying off any remaining debt from the vehicle should help your credit rating. Unfortunately, a repossession will linger on your credit report for about 7 years.

If one has a poor credit history one can find help to resolve the problem. Citizens Advice centres can advise on how to deal with one's debts such that one's credit report will improve.

Restoring bad credit takes time. You can start by requesting your credit report and dispute negative mistakes that you may find. Only the passage of time can improve your credit when you have legitimate negative remarks in your credit report.

One option is to pursue credit repair through a credible company such as Lexington Law or Accurise. These companies have been in the industry for years and can dispute errors on your credit report. However, in certain situations you won't be able to "fix" the repossession on your credit report and will have to wait for the incident to age off your report.

Pay off your debts or wait til they fall off your report (it should say how long they will remain on there). Then get a credit card and pay it off in full each month. That will make your credit improve dramatically.

By definition, you have 'bad credit' if you pay your debts late or fail to pay them altogether. Therefore, if you have bad credit due to debts, or late payments, and you have no money, there is no way for you to repair your bad credit. But sometimes bad credit can be due to errors on your credit report. If this is the case, obtain a copy of your credit report, notify the credit reporting agency of the errors, and they will check into their accuracy and remove them from your credit report if they find that they are indeed truly errors.
