- Credit cards
- Mobile phone bills
- Mortgage payments

Are Missed Payments Like Arrears?
Arrears and late payments are considered different things by various lenders. A late payment is when a payment is missed for whatever reason, but the payment is made up within a short period of time.
An arrear occurs when payment is held several times in a row, so if you miss paying your mobile phone bill for three months, this could be considered arrears and impact on your credit rating.

Your credit report is a great place to start understanding how a mortgage lender may look at your application. Staying up to date and making small changes can quickly and easily impact your credit rating and set you up for better credit deals in the future.
