When to use the registers
Here are some examples of when you might search the Trust Online registers.
About to apply for credit
Before you apply for credit, check that the information held on the registers is up to date. Are CCJs correctly recorded as paid? Have judgments you didn't know about been sent to an old address?
Been refused credit
If you've been turned down by a lender, check the registers to see if that explains why.
Check the information on the registers is up to date
You may have paid what you owed - but did the lender tell the court? Make sure that judgments are up to date.
A few months after moving house, check to make sure there are no default judgments issued to your old address without your knowledge
