Dedicated to assisting consumers deal effectively with debt and credit concerns and protecting the rights of our clients through legal means whenever credit bureaus, creditors or collection agencies violate state and or federal mandates.
The Heritage Group was born as a result of the owners’ own credit and debt issues in the mid-80’s. Faced with bankruptcy and the closure of his small retail store, he contacted his creditors and offered them an equal share of what little money was available. The negotiation was successful and bankruptcy was avoided. With a new understanding of how creditors could be dealt with, he advertised to assist consumers with similar problems and soon had a book of business that has continued to grow to this day. Although the protocol has changed many times over the years, our thrust is and always will be how we can best serve consumers dealing with credit and debt issues. Now with the addition of an attorney that specializes in consumer rights, the Heritage Group has proudly assisted many people improve their credit profile, increase their FICO score and given back thousands of dollars to our clients whose rights were violated. We believe we are the only Credit Repair company that utilizes this very unique business model. The Heritage Group has two offices serving the Central Coast and visualize more offices throughout California in the near future.
Typical credit repair companies use “dispute letters” that simply question debt ownership. This rarely works and is usually untruthful since, the consumer probably did possess the debt. It will sometimes result in a deletion of the unwanted entry on the credit report but will soon reappear causing the consumer a great deal of frustration, wasted time and money.
The Heritage Group has an extremely unique business model that utilizes several different approaches depending on the type of entry. For example; judgments, bankruptcies, collections, liens, foreclosures and identity theft are all approached in a different manner. Additionally, we have identified no fewer than 14 areas where errors are typically made on a credit report. Armed with this information we are able to raise legitimate questions that result in the entry being corrected or removed as opposed to just sending a “dispute” letter and hoping for the best. Finally, we conduct forensic analysis of credit reports with an eye on possible illegal reporting (which is very, very common). When these are identified, our clients’ cases will be turned over to our attorney for litigation. This often results in the deletion of the entry (never to go back on) and a cash award for our client as well! Our attorney does not charge our clients for his service. The Heritage Group also attempts to educate consumer to avoid common mistakes that will often result in a poor credit rating. We are not aware of any company that employs our protocol or enjoys our success.

Dispute letters don’t work.

Dear Heritage Group,
I just wanted to thank you for your help with my credit. We started in mid May of this year and in less than two months the results have been terrific! There was originally 12 negative items on my credit report and my score was in the low 600s. Now eleven of the items are removed, with only one left and my score is 700s! Thanks guys, you really did an outstanding job for me!

My name is Joe M. Gomez. I came to the Heritage Group in June of ’12 looking for solutions. Like many others, I was having issues increasing my credit score. I sat down with Derek and discussed my concerns. Derek explained what the Heritage Group had to offer. I agreed to accept their services. My issue was that I was financially held back by a credit score in the mid-500’s. Obviously, with a low credit score, no way could I try to get a mortgage loan. I couldn’t even apply for a credit card. Derek and the group went to work. My credit sure had changed in two years. However, in just 45 days the Heritage Group helped raise my score by 100 points. In less than 2 months I now have the confidence to apply for a credit card. As well as begin to look at purchasing a home. I would like to thank Derek and the Heritage Group for their services.
