So, I’ve finished my IVA after 6 long difficult years. I got the completion certificate from CF on Thursday last week and a copy in the post today. This forum has helped me so much over the last few years.
I’ve sent a copy of the certificate to each of the 3 CRA’s as CF suggested.
I’ve been wondering about my bank account, I’ve had a basic account with Nationwide for nearly 15 years now (before IVA was in a DMP with Payplan). I’m quite happy with Nationwide and wasn’t planning on moving but I wondered if they might offer me, in the future, an upgrade to a full account after the IVA drops off my credit file next month. Would they possibly also offer a credit card at some point too?
I don’t really need or want a ‘credit builder’ card with Vanquis or whoever but it would be handy to have a ‘regular’ card at some time in the future.
If i didn’t do anything to try and ’rebuild’ my credit rating would I never be at a place where I would be able to get any. By that I mean, if I don’t proactively apply for a new bank account or credit card.
On my credit files, I have my bank account and Virgin mobile contract - and at the moment the IVA. There are no defaults or CCJ’s any more.
Hope that makes sense?
