Can bad credit in the states affect your credit in England?

Sooooo. I’m not even going to get into the eye stabby story about how I have a maxed out credit card that I’ve never spent a dime on and a crazed senile mother wanting me to pay it for her. Or the other ten million reasons that I will be renting rooms and not apartments for the rest of my life. I’m just wanting to know if I can rent a place in England. Or do anything that requires credit there. Just curious.

The short answer is no, neither bad nor good credit carries between the UK/US. If you’re willing to spend the time and build up credit status in the UK then you have a clean slate to work with.

Am I the only one hoping she tells the story anyways?

No. :wink:
