Credit Reports

Does having negative information drop from your credit report when the time limit has ran out boost your credit score automatically?

Yes. But probably not by much. The reason has to do with the

configuration of credit scoring software. Credit scores places the

most emphasis, 35%, on what has occured recently (within the last

12 mos). So, information so old that it is "dropping off" is not

causing much of a deduction anyway. However, the deduction that is

being generated would be gone once the data falls off. Even if this

is only a few points, yes, your score would recover those
