In addition, lenders may obtain a credit report if borrowers seek to restructure a loan or are in arrears on a loan, or are seeking a new loan under €2,000. These obligations will extend to hire purchase and similar credit applications from 1 October 2019 onwards. Borrowers can request their credit report at anytime.
