Hello, I need some advice. We're in the middle of the mortgage process and we were just informed that our lender (bank) can't pull one of our credit reports from Equifax. They said it was because of a security freeze. We've never initiated a security freeze, but we figured we'd check. I called the credit agency and they state there is no freeze or any visible reason why the report can't be pulled. We are also able to pull the report ourselves from the annualcreditreport website with no issues. Does anyone have advice on how to deal with this situation? Things to try? Ways to get the lender the report? It's very frustrating and we're worried about getting the application approved in our tight time frame.
Any help would be appreciated!

What program? Conventional guidelines will take it as long as you have two scores and the lower score is 620. FHA/VA in investors will take it, but will have to use the lower number.

Wow we are going through the same thing with Equifax. NFCU can not get equifax report or score on my wife. Myself is fine all three scores my wife all but Equifax. We have been on the phone for days with these people and they are clueless. I know there is something wrong because my wife can not lock or unlock her report or file online disputes on equifax.com but I can no problem on my account. Also all credit monitoring we have through sites like credit check total have emailed us saying equifax will not let them monitor the reports so something is up.
Im going to lose getting our second home becasue of this. We have no freeze or locks on our report. They tell us there is nothing wrong but Navy has pulled 3 times and still cant get my wife equifax report to pull. Good luck getting anyone who speaks english or knows what they are doing at equifax to help.

OMG this happen to us in Februay and it was Equifax too. Equifax didn't like the address the lender was associating with us when they ran the report. We sold our house and moved in with our parents until our new house was complete, so when we filled out the mortgage app we used our parents address. The lender kept telling us we had a block on our report/ security freeze and we almost selected another lender because of this. It wasn't until our lender entered our prior address to the house we sold that are report pulled up. Hope this helps!
