Tax lien filed in 2005, paid in 2010, killing me on CBCInnovis CR for mortgage

Hi everyone... first post so let me know if I miss any important details and thanks in advance.

 

I'm in the process of applying for a mortgage with my wife for our first home. Her scores are good (787/792/794) but our joint application was denied because of my score as reported by CBC Innovis. They pegged me at:

 

BEACON 5.0 SCORE +652 EFX01

CLASSIC 04 SCORE +688 TRU01

FAIR ISAAC SCORE 2 +661 XPN01

 

By contrast myFICO yields:

 

Experian 709

Equifax 705

Transunion 704

 

We are moving to the San Francisco Bay Area (so expensive...) and are looking to qualify for mortgage above the conforming limits. The first lender we've spoken to used CBC and told us I would need a 700 to be approved.

 

The major difference between the reports I can pull and the CBC report is a tax lien filed by the District of Columbia in 2005 (for the 1999 tax year). I had moved around a lot in the mid-2000s and didn't get the notice for this lien until 2010, when I paid it in full (around $3000). That lien doesn't show up in any of the reports I pull (from myFICO or from the the CRA websites). However, I have a copy of the CBC report, and it does show up there, with a LACT date of 01/2010.

 

I guess that leaves me with two main questions:

 

1. Is there anything I can (realistically) do to convince CBC and/or the lender to discount this particular event?

2. Will other lenders use a report similar to the CBC report, such that no mortgage lender will view me as having a 700+ score?

 

Any help on either of these questions very much appreciated.

I'm interested in your thread, so I'm going to follow it.

 

CBC acts as a CRA under the FCRA, so they have a department that handles consumer disputes (and answers questions about the reports they sell to lenders): http://www.cbcinnovis.com/consumer_relations.html

 

Which bureau is reporting the public record?

 

Is the PR listed as a negative factor on your score disclosure? If so, the score for which bureau(s)?

All three bureaus are reporting the PR. TU and EXP report it as "TAX LIEN RELEASED FILED−03/05 LACT−01/10" and EFX says, "LIEN RELEASED FILED−03/05 LACT−01/10"

 

All three bureaus also list it as a negative factor: "DEROGATORY PUBLIC RECORD OR COLLECTION FILED"

Full Factual report?

And here's a different view from MarvBear:

To just answer the original poster's question regarding a Full Factual Credit Report...............

A Full Factual Credit Report is a manually produced credit report from at least two (2) of the major credit reporting entities. All of the information contained in the report/file is manually verified, including tradeline information, line by line. Generally they take around 3 + days to produce and are quite expensive to produce and prepare. You don't need a special boutique credit agency to prepare one, they are available via Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, if the data subscriber wants to pay the price.

Information that has been deleted from your credit report/file, will not be present on a Full Factual Credit Report.
Information that has naturally aged off of your credit report/file, will not be present on a Full Factual Credit Report.

I generally personally use the term "credit report" and "credit file" interchangeably to mean the same thing, when in technical fact they do not. I view that as a whole separate discussion,

Interesting. But at the same time I have to wonder: Would you really need something like a Full Factual to uncover this? Why doesn't this show up on the reports I pull from myFICO and the CRAs? After all, the Last Activity (payment in 2010) is a lot less than seven years old.

After spending a bit more time with my reports this afternoon, I have to revise my original post: The PRs do in fact show up on the reports from myFICO. They just don't seem to have the same impact on the myFICO score as they do on the scores coming from CBC. I don't know the ins and outs of how the scoring models work, but I wasn't expecting to see someone like CBC report such a drastically different set of numbers from what I get from myFICO.

 

Maybe it comes down to this question: Are all lenders evaluating me for a jumbo mortgage going to get a report with this low score? Or do I just need to find a lender who is going to get a report that more closely matches the myFICO scores?

The FICO scores from myFICO.com and those used for mortgage lending are different score models.

 

CBC has nothing to do with your score... the three bureaus provide the data, FICO scores the data and CBC just packages it all up and sends it off to the mortgage lender. I say "just," but there is a fair amount of work involved in merging all of that info so it's easily readably by a human. :)

Is the CBC score FICO? You mention "scores." did CBC provide 3 scores? If so they provided a consolidated, 3 CRA report with standard FICO 04 scores and should be close to My FICO though those are now FICO08 type scores. What exactly were the CBC scores?

 

Duh, I see he listed both sets in the OP. Must be model differences.

I thought mortgage scores used standard FICO scores? Doesn't MyFico also use standard scores, not credit card enhanced scores? Models could, and probably are, different. Mortage underwriters typically still use 04 FICOs.

 

EQ used to provide Beacon 5.0 FICO scores until the "upgraded"

Evidently you reside in an area where your equifax file is owned by CBC which is a regional credit reporting agency that owns the rights to your equifax file. The information should still be consistent with their parent

I would file IRS form 12277 and get the lien withdrawn, once off all your reports have them re score them.

 

Isn't that just for federal tax liens? This one is from the District of Columbia. I haven't found any good info on removing liens from state/city taxes.

Yes, sadly it's federal only.

Ahh ok, DC filed it, when I saw DC I just assumed the feds. I would still check with DC authorities to see if there is a way to get it withdrawn.

Just an update here for future readers. What I didn't know when I posted this (but what's become clear with further research) is that mortgage underwriters often use very different scoring models (as suggested above) from other creditors. I don't have the expertise to go into the nuances of how/why these models are different, but it gets to the crux of my question about why CBCInnovis returned such a different result from myFICO. As for the tax lien, going back through my records I discovered a discrepancy with the public records. While DC shows a LACT date of 2010, it turns out that I actually paid in full in 2007. I'm currently disputing with the CRAs (I'm 99% certain that the DC government will not be able to effectively update their records and notify the CRAs).

as we said, MF is FICO 08 and mortgages use FICO 04.

Thanks for the update. Good luck with your dispute and your mortgage pursuit.

PR's are not handled the same way as collection accounts.. DC doesn't update CRA records. It's the CRA's primary responsibility to verify public records.

      It’s a long post but, where do I go from here? I am not sure what to do next. Do I just pay everything off and only charge a small account to one or two cards and pay them off every month or is there more to it? My goal is to buy a house. Hopefully by next summer. I, unfortunately, listened to Credit Karma before I did more research and opened more cards than I probably should have and charged a bunch but, I will have all the balances back at zero in 2-3 months at most.
       
      Here is what I am doing: paying all current credit balances to zero with no more charging, paying down student loans currently in deferment. I am thinking of closing the First Premier card and opening a self lender account (to get a better mix) but, am not sure if closing a paid card will hurt my score. 
       
      This is where I am sitting at:
      Scores
      Wells Fargo Fico 9 score: 626
      Fico 8 scores pulled from premium Experian subscription:
      Experian- 657 Equifax- 643 Transunion: 661 Fico 8: 657
      Collections
      LVNV/Resurgent: $518 paid just waiting to be deleted from credit report
      IC Systems: $253, waiting on a response from debt verification letter, if that doesn't work I am asking for a PFD
      What Is Reporting
      Fingerhut: $73.06 out of $600 limit since Feb 2020
      Capital One (authorized user, no card): $555 out of $9,500 limit since Nov 2014
      Capital One (Walmart store card): $193.24 out of $300 since May 2020
      Credit One $258.50 out of $300 since May 2020
      First Premier: 270.83 out of $300 since Jan 2020
      Synchrony Bank: $0 out of $1800 since Feb 2020 (never used)
      Student Loans
      Went through rehab and now in deferment due to being in school, no longer taking out more loans. Total: $39107.18
       
      I also have some transferred closed student loans showing up on Equifax and Transuion as 120 days late with zero balances that I do not know what to do with.

      Hello, I am a long time member but I have been away for a long time. I am looking for some advice or just opinions that I am doing the right thing!
       
      To start I am looking to buy a home by the end of the year!
       
      My Current Situation:
      AMEX: Opened Feb 2012 / Balance $0 / Limit: $6700 / One 30 Day Late Payment
      Barclays: Opened Oct 2019 / Balance $387 / Limit $1000 / No Lates
      Capital One: Opened Dec 2010 / Balance $202 / Limit $5750 / One 30 day(Feb 2019), One 60 Day Late (March 2019)
      Discover: Opened June 2020 (0% Balance Transfer) / Balance $9343 / Limit $9500
      Kohls/CAPONE: Opened Oct 2016 / Balance $0 / Limit $3000
       Merrick Bank: Opened June 2011 / Balance $0 / Limit $3300 / 30 Day Lates (Oct & Nov 2018) - 60 Day Late Dec 2018 - 90 Day Late Jan 2019
      Nordstrom: Opened Nov 2012 / Balance $0 / Limit $5800 / No Lates
      THD/CBNA (Home Depot) Opened June 2011 / Balance $2000 / Limit $6000 / No Lates
      CLOSED: PNC Credit Card Opened Jan 2016 / Closed Dec 2018 Legally Paid in full for less than the full balance Lates: (2017) Aug 30days - Sept 60days - Oct 60 days- Nov 90 days (2018) Jul 30 days - Aug 60 Days - Sept 90 Days - Oct/Nov 120 Days
      CLOSED: SYNCB/LAZBOY: Opened DEC 2014 Closed Oct 2017 Good history no negatives
      CLOSED: NOT REPORTING NOW: Credit Union CC Balance $8500 with late pays (I am sure this will show up when i least expect it)
       
       AUTO Loan:
      US BANK Opened April 2020 Good History
      - I have 5 closed Auto Loans with perfect history
       
      Student Loans:
      - Balance $7410 Good History
      - Balance $6165 Good History
      - CLOSED: Good History
       
      Personal Loans:
      - CLOSED: One Main Financial this loan was paid in full in 3 months!
       
      401k Loan:
      $9500 - Auto Pay through pay checks does not show on credit report
       
      -------
      Now you know my current situation: I just did the balance transfers on the Discover and it has increase my FACO score a large amount. I am thinking of taking a personal loan from my bank to pay off my 401k loan. I would then be able to take out a larger loan to pay off all my revolving debt and have it automatically taken from my pay checks at a 5% interest rate. I would normally leave the balance on the discover card at 0% but that ends in 14 months which I do not know if I would have it paid off in time. As I said i am looking to buy a house before the end of the year. Should i go forward with this process?
       
      Why I am thinking of the 401k loan...
      1) I like the idea that I have a very low interest rate and that interest actually goes back into my 401k
      2) I know the debt will be paid off in 60 months
      3) If god forbid i lose my job the loan is paid off by my 401k (I know this sucks but it does protect me)
      4) this will clear up my credit report of debt and maybe increase my credit score more
       
      I have a plan in place to not run up credit cards again. we are living will within our means now and not running up debt but actually slowly paying it off with high interest. It will go even faster with low interest rates! The way I figure I will be saving an average of $400 a month in interest alone!
       
      Please give me your honest opinion on what I should do!

      Hi,
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions for getting a modification with Mr.Cooper. They have frequently denied me even though they messed up my original modification.
    • By L99
      Hi. Thanks everyone for push out of hopelessness. My scores have increased about 30 points each, and this without reflecting that I paid off a $2500 installment loan a week ago. Total paid off is about $7000 in 6 weeks.
       
      ·       My goal is to buy a home with an FHA loan around October 2021.
      ·       I have $2000 per month to put toward resolving these negatives.
      ·       I don't know if I can call BBVA and Net Credit and work out payment arrangements, or if I need to have all the money now. Scared to call—I keep hearing “don’t talk to them.”
       
      My question is what order to put these in based on how quickly it will impact my credit score.
      My options seem to be:
      1)    Resume student loan payments ASAP, over the next year just save the money monthly and pay BBVA first and then Net Credit, then down payment.
      2)    Pay BBVA first, resume paying student loans in September and then pay Net Credit over the next 12 months.
       
      Remaining negatives on credit report:
      Defaulted Student Loan
      ·       Wait 1-3 months and use that $850/month to work on the other two items?
      BBVA 
      ·       $5600 charge-off as of Sept 2019
      ·       Planning to just pay it, assuming I'll have to pay in full but not sure
      Net Credit Financial Services
      ·       $6900 charge-off from Sept 2019
      ·       Planning to just pay it, assuming I'll have to pay in full but not sure
       
      When do I apply for the mortgage, by the way? How far ahead of when I want to close?
       
      THANK YOU!!!!

      So my mortgage was with Ditech and they folded, and now Shellpoint owes it. 
      This one was in 350k range.
      It about 10 years old.
       
      I also have a 2nd mortgage in the 60k range.
      So it just reported closed.
       
      The following occurred.
      My TU FICO 8 fell from 722-708. FICO 9 fell off a cliff 764-709.
      FICO 8 bankcard 771-718.
      FICO 4 took a nosedive.
       
      EX dropped 2 points.
      I have a baddie that will drop in FEb/March so I think that had something to do with not a great loss.
       
      Just goes to show that having a conventional mortgage which we all know helps, can also really hurt when paid off.
      Utilization is 9%.
       
      I have 1 account showing as 75% but that will drop to 50-60% shortly.
