Credit Bureau CoreLogic Knows Everything About You
Lenders will soon be able to easily check the deepest recesses of your financial life accessing information that never before appeared on your credit report according to a NYT report.
CoreLogic, a credit reporting agency little known to consumers, is offering a new type of credit file based on the huge repository of consumer data it maintains on just about everything that most of the traditional credit bureaus do not: missed rental payments that have gone into collection, any evictions or child support judgments, as well as any applications for payday loans, along with your repayment history.
The new report includes any property tax liens, overdue homeowner’s association dues, whether your house is underwater, and a lot of mortgage related data. CoreLogic may in the future add information on whether you paid your cell phone bill on time. CoreLogic has a deal with FICO to soon provide credit scores. CoreLogic has data on 100,000,000 persons. Experian, in contrast, has files on 200,000,000 persons.
