Most creditor/clients of the CRA's report monthly via automated tapes. Some creditors report sporatically, some never report. Some only report when you are late, like utility companies.

Most creditors report on a 30 days cycle, but that isn't always the beginning or ending of the month. It will also take some time to report on your credit report. So probably you are looking at a 60 days turn around on most late payments.

How often do creditors report to the credit bureaus?

Creditors may report any time there is activity on your account, if a credit report is pulled [for a credit application] or if payments are made late.

Two Ways To Finance?

Vehicle financing can be done two ways. You can go to a buy here, pay here car dealership that will sometimes report to credit agencies. If you have good credit, you can finance a car at a larger dealership. Small buy here, pay here lots require a smaller down payment and the monthly payments are not as expensive. You have a choice of when you would like to make your payments during the month depending on how you get paid. Larger car dealers can offer specials to customers on down payments and monthly payments. They will definitely make a report to a credit agency, and the payment will be due at a certain point in the month.

How do you fix your credit on your credit reports?

This depends on what is wrong with your credit report. If you have accounts sent to collections, then you need to pay them off and wait for seven years for them to drop off your credit report. If you have late payments, start paying on time each and every month. If you are using more than 30% of your available credit, then pay off some of your debt until you are below 30%. Those are just some of the many ways to "fix" your credit.

Can you tell when a 30 day delinquent was put on your credit report?

I just had my credit reviewed. It showed me exactly which payments were 30 days late by show the month and year of every late payment I had (and even 90 and 120 days). But it did not show what day they reported it. There were also some late payments I knew I had, but did not show up because the company did not report it. Ask the company how long after a delenquency will they report it, they will usually tell you. It is is only or first offense and you don't make a habbit of it you are probably going to be okay.

If you are two months late on a house payment or car payment how will that effect your credit and how long will it show up on the credit report?

History on your credit accounts, especially what has taken place in the last twelve months, accounts for 35% of your credit score. This can mean a 200 to 300 point deduction for late payments. The derogatory information stays on your credit report for 7 years. But it will start to affect your score less and less after that critical 12 month period is over.

If you have bad credit and you add one or two unsecured revolving accounts to your credit report will this raise your credit score?

If you keep the account balance reasonable (low) or pay it off every month, and if you make payments on time, preferably more than the minimum, in time your credit rating will improve. It may take approx. 6-12 months.

You have lowered the balance on your credit cards but it is not shown on your credit report How do you correct that?

Just have to wait. The credit card company usually updates the credit reporting agencies once a month. Call your credit card and ask them if they can tell you what day that is. Then it can take up to a month to show up on the credit report. Knowing what day they report is good, because if you want to buy a new computer but tomorrow is the day they report to the agencies, hold off on the computer 2 days, and you'll at least look good for that month's credit report. If you paid it and it's not showing up even after a month, I'd first call your credit card company (they're easier to get ahold of). If they can't help, you can try to correct it by contacting the 3 agencies: , ,and . But usually their dispute process takes a month or two, so you're probably better off just waiting it out.
