Graduates should ensure their credit files are in order or else risk running into financial difficulties later in life, experts have warned.
Credit checking service Equifax say that if a graduate has not kept his or her credit file fully up to date it could have an effect on applying for a mortgage, reports Introducer Today.
Neil Munroe, external affairs director at the firm, notes that credit will probably be a necessity for graduates at some point in their life in order to "develop their lifestyles", the report continues.
He commented: "So it's important that they do [check their history]. If anything's not right on there - which is a very, very rare occurrence - they can come to agencies like ourselves and we will look into it for them."
He added that it was important for graduates to realise they can place a statement on the file if there is something that they do not agree with.
Equifax operates in 13 countries and has revenue of $1.4 billion.
