How do you know that CCIs is listed for your outstanding credit?
CCIs is the abbreviation for the Central Credit Information System . It is the legal successor of the old BAR registry. The purpose of the CCIs system is to objectively, prudently and reasonably assess the creditworthiness of registered individuals, customers and clients, to prevent over-indebtedness, to ensure responsible lending and borrowing conditions, and thereby to reduce credit risk. During a credit rating, the financial institution checks whether the person seeking the credit is on the CCIs list. However, not only the bank can do this, but anyone can ask if they are on the CCIs list. But how do you know that CCIs is listed? You have several options for doing this. How do you know that CCIs is listed?
How do I get on the CCIs list?
You can be on the positive credit history list if you have no debt to the bank for your outstanding credit. This can be beneficial when you want to take out a new loan, as you will have 5 years after the loan is paid back, ie whether you have paid off your loan details correctly.
There are several ways to add a negative list to a CCIs . For example, credit defaults (debts), credit card fraud, and credit agreement fraud. A negative list can have two statuses:
- The status is active if you have not yet started paying off your debts.
- The passive status lasts for a year after the debt is settled.
Why is it worth querying?
It is very difficult for those on the CCIs list to obtain credit. If you are an active CCIs listed, you will not be able to get a loan from any bank. These clients usually use private mortgages or look for a family member or friend to borrow on their behalf. However, there are credit institutions that also lend to CCIs status holders. The conditions may be stricter than for “pure” clients.
