This will help many consumers seeking to repair their credit after a bankruptcy, or repairing troublesome credit, as well as assisting others who have little or no credit history with banks. This is part of the industry trend from governmental pressures and market trends to liberalize the availability of credit for the less then perfect borrowers. The three major players in the industry, Experian, Equifax, Inc and Transunion have all already removed notations regarding tax liens judgement in line with these developments.
