If any adverse action is taken as defined by Section 1785.3 of the California Civil Code and the adverse action is based, in whole or in part, on any information contained in a consumer credit report, I have the right to obtain within 60 days a free copy of your consumer credit report from the consumer reporting agency who furnished the report and from any other consumer credit-reporting agency which complies and maintains files on consumers on a nationwide basis relative to my credit. I have the right as described in Section 1785.16 of the California Civil Code to dispute the accuracy or completeness of any information in a consumer credit report furnished by the consumer credit reporting agency.

CALIFORNIA AND UTAH RESIDENTS: As required by California and Utah law, a negative credit report reflecting on my credit record may be submitted to a credit-reporting agency if I fail to fulfill my credit obligation terms.

OHIO RESIDENTS: The Ohio laws against discrimination require that all creditors make credit equally available to all credit worthy customers, and that credit reporting agencies maintain separate credit histories on each individual upon request. The Ohio Civil Rights Commission administers compliance with this law.

If the loan for which I am applying is granted, my spouse will also receive notification that credit has been extended to me.
