DOES CHANGING MY NAME AFFECT MY CREDIT SCORE?
Does changing my name affect my credit score?
This will include your bank, credit card provider, mortgage company etc and they will in turn notify the three main credit reference agencies of your new name.
Therefore, your current credit score will not be affected and should you wish, you can also contact the credit reference agencies yourself to request that your file is updated with your new name.
The three main credit reference agencies in the UK are: Experian plc, Equifax Ltd and Callcredit Ltd*.
