I have a pending dispute with 2 accounts with transunion...however I was planning on applying for a new card and even possibly looking for a new car and was wondered if I need to wait for the outcome?
My question actually is would I be denied because of a pending dispute? someone told me I would but someone else told me it may help and not be held against me.
I really didn't think it would have any impact either way..
Of course if the dispute was in my favor after it is corrected of course it would be in my favor..

thanks...there were actually on 2..one was an account coded as collection/chargeoff that was actually included in bankruptcy 2 years ago...and one was a medical claim for $239 that the medical facility didn't bill the insurance company correctly and was to be removed...
so does it show what my dispute reason was or just shows it is being investigaged?

so do you think I would have been better off leaving the accounts I wanted to dispute and disputing after i applied.? and maybe I did more harm than good?
why would they right off the bat deny me? they could just consider the dispute still a valid charge as was still being investigaged and not technically verified to be incorrect.
