I have a letter if you would like it that you can send to the parties involved that may or may not be able to help you get this off your credit report.
let me know if you would like it.
By mistake. Waste no time contacting the credit reporting companies, and demand that this entry be removed from your credit report.
A repossession can drastically hurt your credit score. The repossessed account may report late payments (30, 60, 90 days late), a pad due balance, and a charge-off. A repossession can lower your credit score anywhere from 30 to 200 points depending on the other accounts reporting on your credit report.
No. Your credit report is a record of all transactions on reported accounts. The repossession will show in the history, but so will the redemption.
No you cannot remove a repossession off your credit report if your cosigner has a judgement on the repossession.
It is possible but not advisable to break a lease on a car. The car would be repossessed, and the repossession would go on your credit report.
If your power gets shut off and you go in and pay the bill current, did your power get shut off?
A repossession is a serious negative and will drop your scores.
A credit report is a record of all transations on a reported account. In the life of a vehicle loan, many things can happen. Over the typical four to five years, the vehicle may have been repossessed and then redeemed and paid off. In these cases, yes, repossession and settlement can show on the same vehicle, on the same credit report.
yes it has a 10 year limit
i need to get a repossession off my credit report
It won't help much unless you can sweet-talk the lender and convince him to remove the repossession from the credit report. Otherwise, the repossession stays on the record and the only 'improvement' to your credit rating would be the lack of an accompanying past due status.
A repossession hurts your credit score whether it is voluntary or not. The creditor will report late payments, a charge off status, and a balance if one is owed. A repossession may hurt your credit score anywhere from 60 to 120 points.
There are 2 ways to remove a repossession from your credit report. You can dispute it to the credit bureaus under the FCRA and they have 30 days to verify the listing or it must be removed from your credit reports or you can contact the creditor that repossessed the car and negotiate the removal of it upon payment of any money owed. The entry is likely to be changed to late, but paid. Most of these fall off after 7 years.
It doesn't erase anything on your own credit report....just adds to it, why would it change someone elses? It adds that you are a bankrupt as well as having missed payments and had a repossession. A credit report simply reports what happened in the past....what ever you do now does not change it...you live with the history you created.
The repossession stays on your credit report for 7 years.
Think about it. IF the lender waited until the loan was paid off,zillions of repos would NEVER be reported. Sooo, they report them as they happen.
The effect on your credit will depend on how the lender chooses to report it to the credit bureau. Sometimes a lender will be willing to report it 'paid as agreed' or 'settled' entry on the credit report rather than an actual repossession. If it is reported as an actual repossession or foreclosure it will be on your credit for seven years and negatively effect your rating.
It would seem that the report would show you have failed to pay as agreed and make payments, and had a repossession (as your question noted, you had a repo), at the very least. That you recovered and paid the amount due doesn't change that you failed to comply with the terms of the loan, didn't make the payments as required and the property even had to be seized. Things like the holiday, etc. are entirely irrelevant.
You present proof that the repossession never occured. You can dispute it with the credit reporting agency.
No, because you have your own separate credit report.
A repossession will significantly lower your credit score, regardless of the balance. It will take around 7 years before the repossession is removed from the credit report.
It stays on your credit report 7 years from the date of settlement not the date of repossession.
