Common Questions

Do negative items remain listed for 7 years?

When you speak with certain creditors, their typically under-educated staff may tell you the law demands that negative listings appear on your credit report for seven to ten years.

The truth is that the credit grantor or the credit bureau can choose to delete the negative credit listing at any time, especially when you give them a reason to do so. The 7 year term is merely a time limit for reporting negative credit. Some items, like bankruptcies, may stay on a report longer than 7 years.



 
“Thank you for all the wonderful work your staff has done on my behalf. The creditors that I wanted removed are no longer there... I couldn't have done it without you, nor would I ever want to. You and your staff are truly professionals and I bow to you.”
