Credit Reference Agencies

Credit Reference Agencies will add details of searches and applications for credit to their records. They share this information with lenders and guarantors of credit who may use it to assess an application for loans, banking, hire facilities or insurance which you or a member of your household may make in the future. 

If you make a joint application, an 'association' between yourself and the other applicants will be created at the credit reference agency which will link your financial records. This association will be considered in future applications by us and other lenders until a successful 'disassociation' is filed with the credit reference agencies.
