    Credit repair regulations in Austin, Texas

    When choosing a credit repair company, it’s essential to find a reputable business. The Credit Repair Organizations Act (CROA) forbids credit repair companies from using deceptive advertising or unethical business practices in the U.S. Credit repair companies are not allowed to make false claims, including promising immediate results or removal of legitimate negative entries on your credit report. The CROA  requires businesses to provide a copy of your rights as a consumer and a written contract that can be canceled within three days of signing.

    Credit repair companies in Austin are also required to register with the Texas Secretary of State, so confirm a company’s registration before providing payment or signing a contract. Credit repair companies are not allowed to charge clients before providing services, so be wary of any company that asks for upfront payment.

    Credit repair companies generally charge a monthly fee or per-entry deletion fee. Be aware of your rights when pursuing credit repair in Austin to avoid predatory businesses and scams.
