HOW LONG DO NEGATIVE MARKS STAY ON MY CREDIT REPORT
Typically, any type of negative information will remain on your credit report
for seven years from the date of occurrence. Bankruptcies are the exception and
remain for ten years. Below is a breakdown of how long different credit items
(good and bad) will be listed on your credit report. It is important to note
that the negative info listed is not coming from the credit bureaus but instead
from your creditors. The three main credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and Trans
Union are simply repositories for the data that all of your creditors, public
records and/or collections agencies report.
- Your accounts that you have paid as agreed will typically stay on your
credit report for as long as ten years from DLA (otherwise known as date of last
- Your accounts that you do not pay as agreed will typically stay on your credit
report for seven years from when the account first became delinquent.
- A late payment will stay on your credit report for seven years.
- A credit inquiry is a record of when company has requested to view your credit
report. It is required by law under the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) that
you are informed of who has requested a copy of your credit report. Usually,
credit inquiries remain on your credit report for two years. It is important to
note that not all credit inquires will be listed on all three of your credit
reports and also that not all credit inquiries will be calculated into your
credit score. For example, 'soft credit pulls' will not impact your credit score
at all or be reflective on your credit report. An example of a 'soft pull' is
when credit card companies will view your credit profile to see if you are
eligible for one of their pre-approval credit card offers. Another example of
when a credit inquiry does not reflect on or effect your credit report are
Account Reviews (also known as Account Monitoring). An Account Review is when
your creditors execute a regular analysis of your credit file in conjunction
with the account you have with them.
- Tax liens that are paid will stay on your credit report for seven years from
the date that they were paid (released).
- Unpaid tax liens will stay on your credit report until they are paid. And once
they are paid, as stated above, they will remain for seven years.
- Whether they are paid or not, judgments will stay on your credit report for
seven years from the time they were filed.
Account in Collection
Any account that hits collections will stay on your credit report for seven
years from the date that the account became delinquent.
- A non-discharged or dismissed chapter 13 will stay on your credit report
for ten years from the date the BK was filed. The same is true for a chapter 11
or 7 bankruptcy filing.
- A chapter 13 bankruptcy that has been discharged will stay on your credit
report for seven years from the filing date.
