In order to report information to the credit bureaus, a company or individual would have to become a contributing client of the bureaus. There is an expense involved and there are also federal statutes which must be followed. So, for the most part, private individuals do not report to the major credit reporting agencies.
Generally, late payments over 30 days late are reported to a credit reporting agency. After that, late mortgage payments can become "missed" mortgage payments. And missed payments can affect your credit score in a negative way. However, your exact late payment will depend on how your specific mortgage lender reports payments to the credit bureaus.
Call the mortgage company and ask why the payments are not being reported (its illegal to NOT report payments) Further, you can call the credit bureaus, and they will request the information from the mortgage company. Realize, that in some instances credit reporting can be suspended.
Refinance the mortgage with you listed as a borrower. You will not be reported to the credit bureaus by being listed on the deed since you have no obligation to pay the debt.
Yes, they will report the late payments to the credit bureaus which will damage your credit score, and if enough payments are missed can commence a foreclosure action on the property.
The bank and the credit bureaus are the only ones that could remove the late payments. If the bank waived the late payments, they will probably remove them from your credit as well. You will need to contact them to negotiate that. Otherwise you will have to dispute them to the credit bureaus. They will have 30 days to verify them or they must be removed.
Yes late payments can come off your credit report. They can be removed by either the original creditor that put it on there or by the credit bureaus. You can dispute late payments on your credit report with the credit bureaus using the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The FCRA requires the credit bureaus to contact the creditors to verify the late payment. If the late payment isn't verified it must be removed.
The higher your credit score, the lower your payments. The lower your credit score, the higher your payments. The analogy above shows how your credit rate affects you mortgage rate.
A private mortgage holder normally does not belong to a credit bureau; therefore, can not report credit activity to a credit bureau..
I can only speak from my own experience. It does indeed appear on our credit report and also states that the mortgage company is filing a claim against us--even though we did not reaffirm the loan. Completely wrong and I've disputed it many times with ALL the credit bureaus but they will not remove it. I'm not sure if there's a government organization that can help force the mortgage company to report correctly to credit bureaus or one that can force the credit bureaus to actually DO an investigation when you dipute it. No win situation, I'm afraid
If you have a history of payments made on time and lived up to the agreement..you betcha! We paid off our mortgage 5 years ago and our credit score has decreased according to the credit bureaus this is due to the fact that we do not have a mortgage. The longer we go without a mortgage (or car loan) the lower our credit score goes. That is because the credit score is based on available credit against what you owe. But having no mortgage is a huge plus when it comes to making a large purchase because what you owe based on your income will be a lower percentage.
Yes, it will shorten the time in which the mortgage is on your credit report.
