Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Lexington Law, the nation’s leading consumer advocacy law firm, announced today that in 2011 it helped its clients remove more than 2.5 million inaccurate, unfair or unsubstantiated items from their credit reports. That’s 1.2 million more removals than Lexington’s previous record-breaking year of 2010!
This record number of removals includes late payments, collection accounts, charge offs, liens, bankruptcies, repossessions, foreclosures, judgments, and a variety of other unverifiable derogatory listings.
Lexington Law forecasts an increase in removal rates for 2012 as more stringent lending requirements drive greater numbers of consumers to take action to ensure their credit reports fairly reflect their creditworthiness. Consumers understand that tighter lending rules require higher scores to qualify for loans. A consumer who would have qualified for a low interest loan a few years ago may not meet even minimum lending requirements today.
"On the other hand, consumers with good credit scores have able to capitalize on bargain prices and extremely low interest rates," said John Heath, Lexington Law Firm's directing attorney. "As the economy recovers, Americans will be presented with better opportunities to use their good credit scores to their advantage. Paying careful attention to credit reports and scores is critical, and Lexington Law stands ready to assist."
