BLACKLISTED? - CLEAR YOUR NAME FROM ITC
Am I Blacklisted?
What is being Blacklisted?
The term blacklisted is used to describe people who have a bad credit profile, otherwise known as a credit record. While everyone understands the term `blacklisted` there is actually no `blacklist`. The term blacklist is randomly used to declare that one is unable to qualify for credit due to negative 'listings' on your Credit Record. These listings are placed on your record by creditors whose accounts you have not paid or by attorneys who are tasked to collect the debt, or the court that granted a judgment/debt review/administration or any credit related order against your name.
Blacklisted Need a Car?
Can I get car finance when I'm blacklisted? No.
Blacklisted Need a Loan?
Can I get a loan when I'm blacklisted? Yes and No..
Depending on the type of loan you are applying for and/or the amount and or the institution your are applying with, you might get a loan even if you are blacklisted. An example of such a loan will be from companies that help you pay off your debts or outstanding balances on judgments. But if you are applying for a substantial loan for a bigger personal project like housing or vehicle, you are not going to be approved when you are blacklisted by any major financial institutions.
Blacklisted Need a House?
Can I obtain a housing loan when I'm blacklisted? No.
Find out if you are blacklisted or not.
It’s easy to find out if you are blacklisted or not, all you need do is get your credit record from South Africa’s two largest consumer credit bureaus, TransUnion Credit Bureau (Pty) Ltd and Experian Ltd. You need to check your credit record from both these credit bureaus as they have different business subscribers and usually have different, but overlapping, credit data for every user of credit.
Getting the full picture
To illustrate, you may find that an adverse listing such as a “Bad payer” default by e.g. Appliance City only appears on your Experian credit record and a magistrates court judgement by e.g. Standard Bank only appears on your TransUnion credit record. So, to be on the safe side, get your credit record from both credit bureaus, either by applying directly to Experian Credit Bureau and Transunion Credit Bureau in turn, or click this button for Instant Online ITC (both Experian & Transunion) Reports.
