A charge off should be removed from the credit report when the required seven years has expired. Credit bureaus are sometimes lax in their reporting, therefore the consumer should keep track of entries and if necessary contact the CRA, present the needed documentation and request any invalid information be removed.

Typically, you have to wait 7 years for the charge-off to come off your credit report. But, if the account is incorrect, incomplete, misleading, or unverifiable, it may be deleted much sooner.

It will show up on the credit reports for 10 years.

The three credit reports are reliable and trustworthy. They are experian, transunion, and equifax. As long as you monitor your reports to make sure no one steals your identity, they are reliable.

Negative entries stay on your reports for 7 years + 180 days from the date of first delinquency that immediately preceded placement for collections and/or charge-off.

Charge offs and most other defaulted debts are expunged (or should be) from a credit report seven years after the DLA.

Typically credit reports are updated monthly, but can take up to 90 days in some cases.

Credit reports are national, not from state to state. A judgment will stay on your credit 7-10 years depending on the type of judgment regardless of what state you live in.

7 to 10 years from the date of entry, some states differ

As soon as your creditor reports your balance is zero, the Credit reporting agencies update about every 30 days

Credit reports are lifetime cumulative records of your financial history. They are with you forever, however, the older the judgment AND if you maintain a good credit history after the judgment, the less weight it carries.

The Fair Credit Reporting Act allows charge offs and collection accounts to show for 7 years, plus 180 days from the last time you paid the account (on time) immediately prior to the charge off.

It is best to first clean up your credit reports after the bankrutpcy before applying for new credit. Wait at least 3 months after discharge to start cleaning up any inaccuracies on your reports. You can apply for credit the day after your discharge, but your success rate will not be very good and the interest rate you pay will be very high.

It can be listed on credit reports for up to 10 years. If your question is how long will it be on file meaning the official court docket (a public record), the answer is forever.

User Avatar

Yes, as long as your listed as a "Co-signer" on the account. Credit is not build if you are just an "Authorized User" if this was a credit card account. Lastly, this all assumes that whatever this joint-account is that it reports to credit.

It should not take too long. Less than a year. * Evictions are not entered onto credit reports unless they are perfected into judgments resulting from a civil suit.

User Avatar

Pretty sure that it's seven years. Why don't you contest it?

Do not worry about applying for credit after bankruptcy. The applications will come to you before the ink on the court documents has dried.

My merchant service will alow any charge, regardless of the date of sale, as long as I have a physical imprint of the card, and the correct signature (provided the card has not expired)
