Credit recovery after almost-foreclosure

Recommended Posts

I had a rental property that was part of a business dealing that went bad.  The property was on the brink of foreclosure when we were finally able to settle and sell.  Bank (and taxes, HOA, etc) all were paid in full.  This was not a short sale, or settlement of debt. 

 

Realistically, when would I start to see my credit score increase?  This house was the only negative on my credit report (unfortunately a large one) and was nearly 2-years behind when everything was resolved.  Score dropped about 150 points when the payments were falling behind.

 

Other debt is minimal.  Just primary residence ($200k and 5 years of on-time payments) and a school loan ($6k remaining).  Credit cards are used for daily transactions, but are always paid in full.  No other late payments, collections, or anything of the sort for 15 years plus. 

 

Bank is showing the mortgage account as closed, but it doesn't appear that it was marked as "Paid in Full."

 

Related question, I see that typically late payments fall off of the credit report 7 years after "first notice."   Does that mean at the 7 year mark, that all vanishes, or is it a rolling 7-year (as the last late payment filing was 2 years after the first, so it would be 2 years from now?).

 

Thank you.

It is 7 years from the DOFD, the date you became delinquent and never became current. If you fell delinquent once, never brought it current to create a new DOFD, you would go by the original DOFD plus 7 years as to when the deletion of all lates will occur.

 

Also look into early deletion, each bureau is different:

      I finally decided to attack my credit issue rather than pretend they don't exist. Here is the situation
       
      Here is my CreditKarma information...
       
      TransUnion and Equifax (both show the same items
      Credit Cards $0
      I have a $500 secured Discover IT card that I used for YouTube TV payment and that is it. Between 10% and 30% utilization opened May 2020.
      My mother added me as an authorized user to her Costco Capital One card that has perfect payment history, 8 years open and a $15,000 limit.

      I have sent debt validation letters to all three credit bureaus and this is what was verified. Where do I go from here. I was added as an authorized user to my mothers credit card (Capital One Costco) about a month ago. I hope this helps my score improve but it hasn't reported yet. I saw a 25+ point boost from my secured discover card but it hasn't helped since then. Can anyone offer some guidance as to a path for a better credit score? 
       
      Thanks,

      Anyone have experience pulling medical collections back from the credit agency and start a payment plan with your HC provider? Or negotiating with a HC provider for items already in collections and paying the HC a negotiated monthly amount or a one time negotiated payment then doing WhyChats system if the items are not removed from collections? The reason I ask is I have over 9 open accounts with Armada Corp (CA) totally over $15,000 and I am looking for the most efficient way to get this removed from my credit report.
       
       
      Thanks,
