If you suspect there may be something on your credit report that might cause a problem, you should investigate it before you attempt to gain approval for your home loan prior to making an offer on a home.

The Federal law requires credit bureaus to share this information with you. In most instances, you may receive one in-file report per year at no charge. Call one or all of the major institutions and request one.
