Best Answer

Under normal circumstances, credit activity should be reported monthly. Answer 2 There really is no time limit unless there's a statute on how long a company has to colelct a debt. However, usually creditors will wait about 30-90 days to see if you'll pay. You'll get past due notices in the mail. You'll probably get 30 day overdue notices in the mail, then 60 days, then 90 days. In between 30 and 60 days you'll start getting calls from the companies you owe money to. After about 90 days when the creditor has done everything in their power to contact and collect from you, they will then contact a debt collection agency to do it for them.

If several debts listed on a credit report are sold to a new collection agency and then paid in full can the debts from the old agency be disputed and removed from a credit report?

Yes and no. What the original credit agency should be reporting is that the debt was transferred to a new collector. Once you have proof that the debt was paid in full, you should be able to provide all creditors that are reporting negative info regarding that debt that this is the case and they should mark your records accordingly with a zero balance. It is really entirely up to them as to whether or not they totally remove the entry from your credit report.
