What is Bad Credit History?

You will have a bad credit history if you have failed to keep up with credit agreements in the past. It usually means it will be difficult to get approved for new credit or loans. It may mean you have not paid previous credit payments on time; you may not have paid them at all.

Your credit history is collected by companies called credit reference agencies, such as Equifax or Experian. These are compiled into a credit report. Negative information, such as late payments or loan defaults on your credit report means you have a bad credit record. You may have been referred to a collection agency or had a car repossessed, for example. If there are multiple cases over a short period of time, this will contribute to your credit record. However, some events only need to happen once to make lenders not want to lend to you. This could be things like bankruptcy or repossession of goods.

The information in your credit report is used to calculate your credit score. A low credit score indicates you have a bad credit history.
