The Good

The owner of Clean Slate Credit Solutions is a disabled US Marine Corp veteran, and the company offers a discount to military (both active duty and retired), servicemen, police officers, fire fighters, and spouses. This is a company with no complaints from the Better Business Bureau, and that’s a good sign. Their rating is an A-, but they haven’t been around for long so that could easily go up or down. Keep an eye on Clean Slate Credit Solutions, and as they continue to do quality work they will be looked favorably upon by the BBB.

Many credit repair companies charge a monthly fee for their work on your credit reports. Clean Slate Credit Solutions charges fees after the negative items have been removed and only charges per item. Removing incorrect information about your address is different than information about bankruptcies and therefore you’re charged differently. This system of billing makes the credit removal process more clear cut.

The Bad

Clean Slate Credit Solutions has some unfinished web pages on its site. They offer a “5 plate” educational resource that discusses 5 things necessary to clean credit; however, they do not offer more educational tools and resources to non-clients and visitors. The site itself has a somewhat slow load time when navigating each page.

The Bottom Line

Clean Slate Credit Solutions is still a very new company. This doesn’t immediately eliminate them from the list of quality credit repair companies, but an inexperienced company should make you a little wary. It’s a quality that should make you dig deeper. No one won gold their first time out of the gate, but perhaps a fresh company is exactly what you’re looking for. Do your homework to determine whether this company will suite your credit repair needs.

At Clean Slate Credit Solutions, they use what is called the “5 plates to a clean slate.” The five steps the team at Clean Slate Credit Solutions utilizes to help their clients achieve their credit goals includes a debt settlement service in addition to their credit repair services. Together, the debt settlement and credit repair process helps their clients get to where they want to be financially.

Step#1: Credit Report Evaluation

The staff at Clean Slate Credit Solutions will begin by evaluating your credit report. If you do not already have your credit reports, Clean Slate Credit Solutions will obtain them on your behalf free of charge. After they have a copy of your credit report, an expert from the Clean Slate team will go over all details outlined in your credit report. They will then determine if you need help with building your credit, debt settlement, debt consolidation, student loan consolidation, obtaining a mortgage or auto loan, or refinancing a loan.

Step #2: Audit

After receiving a copy of your credit report, you will have your report reviewed by a credit expert and then you will subsequently be enrolled in credit score monitoring. You will receive your own username and password so that you can login to your online account and watch the progress of your credit case. The person handling your case will then identify the inaccurate and negative items on your credit report and begin to draft up the dispute letters that are then sent to the credit bureaus, creditors, and collection agencies.

Step #3:

In order to see the results you want from this credit repair service, you have to start adding positive accounts to your credit report. In an effort to assist with this process, the Clean Slate team will help you apply for a secured credit card and any other lines of credit you may qualify for. They will then help you add an authorized user (AU) account to your credit report. This is essential in helping you start on the path to a positive credit history, which will drastically help improve your credit score.

Step #4: Debt Settlement

If, for some reason, some of your negative items were not able to be removed during the dispute process, the Clean Slate team will assist you in debt settlement. They do this part of the process last to ensure that you are not paying for deleted items. They will help with accounts that involve charge-offs or still have a balance. There is no guarantee that all of your debts will be settled, but it does help to have someone going to bat for you with your creditors.

Step #5: Graduate

Typically, the Clean Slate process takes six months after signing up for their service. During that time, the Clean Slate team will do what they can to remove as many inaccurate and negative items from your credit report as possible while also helping with debt settlement as it pertains to open collections and charge-offs.

Our 5th Plate to a Clean Slate is for you to graduate our program, usually in after six (6) months of signing up. We will ensure that we have did everything possible to remove as much inaccurate negatives as possible and help you with paying off your open collections and charge-offs. Most importantly, we will refer you mortgage brokers, banks, auto dealerships, real estate agents, accountants and others to help you with achieving your financial goals.
