Understanding the Fair Credit Reporting Act in California: Insights from Los Angeles FCRA Attorneys

Navigating the complexities of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) in California can be a challenging endeavor. At Martin & Bontrager, APC, our experienced Los Angeles FCRA attorneys are dedicated to helping individuals understand their rights under this crucial legislation.

What is the Fair Credit Reporting Act?

The FCRA is a federal law that regulates how credit reporting agencies use and distribute your credit information. It ensures the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of personal information in the files of consumer reporting agencies.

Your Rights Under the FCRA

As a California resident, the FCRA gives you several rights regarding your credit information:

  • Right to Accuracy: Credit reporting agencies must ensure your information is accurate and complete.
  • Right to Dispute Errors: You have the right to dispute any inaccuracies in your credit report.
  • Right to Know What’s in Your Report: You can request one free credit report every 12 months from each of the three major credit bureaus.
