you can't * A bankruptcy remains on a credit report for 10 years from the time of discharge. Credit bureaus should remove the BK when the time limit has expired. Unfortunately all three major bureaus are extremely lax in record keeping and it is usually necessary for the consumer to contact all three with a letter of dispute requesting the entry be expunged. Once they receive the correspondence they will verify if the time limit has expired and then (hopefully) take the appropriate action.

When will a bankruptcy come off your credit report if the discharge date for your Chapter 7 was September 1996?

The statute of limitations for reporting information about a bankruptcy is ten years from the date it was filed. You did not mention the filing date, so the very late date your bankruptcy should show on your credit report would be September of 2006.

You co -signed on a mobile home in 1996 The primary person on the account has had some late payments and the loan has been sold to another mortgage company how long is the report to stay on your credi?

This could stay on your credit report for as long as 7 to 10 years if the company continues to report to the credit reporting agency. If they don't it could drop off in 3 years. I work for a used car business and pull credit reports all the time. I have great knowledge in this area.

You had a voluntary repossession in 1996 and a charge off still remains on your credit report and now you get a letter from an collection agency?

The bottom line is that if you owe money from your past, you should pay it. Some one took a loss that you caused and that is bad karma. Negative credit should disappear from the credit report after 7 years but I've seen some that remain much longer. Do the right thing and pay the creditor.
