If you don’t recognise a search on your report, it could be because other smaller lenders are sometimes owned by larger organisations and are labelled this way on your credit report.
If you have used a price comparison site to search for a product, their terms and conditions sometimes state that a credit search may be carried out by themselves or their partner organisations. This may mean that a search carried out by a company you do not recognise is present on your credit report - it may be one of the insurance companies whose details were shown to you, or it could be a subsidiary of one of those companies (most commonly Aviva or Insurance Initiatives) and is nothing to worry about.
A record of this search will be kept but it won’t adversely affect your credit score.
The best way to see whether this search should be on your report is to contact the lender directly to see why this search is showing up.
Alternatively you can fill in a dispute form to get this information changed with Equifax directly: raise a dispute
This process can take up to 28 days.
