pa Late fee's accrue after 5-10 days... however, it is reported to the credit bureau if it is 30 days late. It depends upon the terms of the mortgage, many lenders allow a grace period before assessing delinquent penalties.

Technically you are late if you make your payment anytime after the due date. The vast majority of mortgages are due on the 1st of the month. Most mortgage companies will not assess a late fee unless you are 15 or more days late. At that point the normal late fee will be 5% of your regular mortgage payment. The lender will not report the late payment to a credit bureau until you are 30 days late.

If you paid your mortgage 20 days late and were charged a late fee will this be reported to the credit bureaus?

That's at the discretion of the lender, and/or terms of the loan. If the mortgagee has a good payment history many lenders will not report a single late payment. It is possible that your mortgage company reported your loan as "past due", but not likely. This is one column/heading in a typical credit report. The rating of I1 or M1 would not change, nor would the delinquency be reported in the counters until your mortgage was 30 or more days late. The ordinary procedure is for mortgage companies to report only 30+ delinquencies. According to each individual contract, they may charge late fees if you pay 5,15 or 20 days late, but this generally is not reported against you. To be sure, it would be best to obtain copies of your credit report from all three reporting agencies. Address any late payment showing NOW and see if your mortgage company will remove that late as an act of goodwill.

Is it true that as long as you make your mortgage payment in the same calendar month the mortgage lender cannot report you as being late onyour mortgage payment correct?

By how much will a credit score drop if a mortgage payment is 30 days late?

When most credit scores are computed, there is no difference in type of late payment at the 30 day point. Whether it be a mortgage payment, auto loan payment, personal loan payment or credit card payment, the impact is going to be generally the same (unless one has a record of late payments). The credit score will drop from 25 to 50 points for the missed payment and it will take about a year to get MOST of those points back (two years is generally the "missed payment" cutoff for most scoring systems).

If you pay your mortgage payment after the due date but before the day it is considered late will this affect your credit?

If the mortgage company receives the payment before the "late" date, it won't affect your credit if you don't do it all the time. If you do it too often, they may call you a "slow pay" instead of a "late pay" and that will affect your credit in a bad way. Your payment is late if not paid on or before the due date. Most states do not allow a mortgage company to attach a penalty if it is paid within 10, 14 or 15 days, depending on the state, but it is still late, and can be reported as such. That will affect your score.
