    What is shown on a estate agent check? 13th Feb 18 at 11:18 AM
    I know when going through an estate agent they will run a check but what can they see?
    Can they see my actual credit score that I would see and any loans or payments I make to them etc.

    I'm just a bit worried as my score is really bad 281 on equifax/clearscore.
    I have been renting though for 2 years no payments missed and I earn 30k before tax.

    Any ideas of what to expect and what they can actually see as if it uses my credit score than lenders see I doubt il be able to move.
