I just disputed 3 liens in TU.  Two disapeared on EQ.  There is one left that is from my old business.

Synchrony just did the monthly update on TU. My score as of July 8 (last Saturday) is still the same, 646. That being said...the score was updated before the date (July 9-10) when the actual process of reviewing and removing defective civil judgment items began. Therefore, given that I found my own 2011 item to be defective when I checked my local jurisdiction's online records, I do expect it to be removed soon from TU and EX if it hasn't already been.

@masscredit
I'm confused. What causes rebucketing to cause a drop in scores?
Thanks

Re: July 10 & Tax Lien/Judgment Still Showing. Next Step?

Just got an update from EX on the iPhone app (I prefer it to the website, which does wonky things to my PC's memory while eating up network bandwidth for some peculiar reason). The alert was actually for my new Penfed card being added to my account list, but I checked and saw that the civil judgment has been removed. That leaves TU as the only CRA that still has it on my report as of this morning.

You have a bunch of history on your account, rebucketing in your case will be a good thing if you get all your liens off.

Starting Score: EQ 5 561, TU 98 567, EX 2 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 5 771, TU 4 758, EX 2 758, EQ 8 795, TU 8 762, EX 8 786 (7/28/17)
Goal Score:    EQ 5 750, TU 4 750, EX 2 750, EQ 8 800, TU 8 Blah, EX 8 800 (01/01/18)

Rebucketing = changing scorecards.

 

Scorecards have ranges and they can overlap, so you can go to a cleaner scorecard and score less well than you did on the dirtier one.  Basically everyone gets sorted into into scorecards, and then there's some comparitive measurement inside that scorecard with various metrics (presumably) based on the data FICO has collected.

 

I have a recent example of this: I was in the PR bucket (tax lien in my case) with lates; when my lates got excluded and I wound up in a different dirty bucket, I actually lost points just having a tax lien but no lates at all showing.  The theory on this is that my lates were comparitively minor (30/60D) few (2 on a single tradeline), and old when they got excluded, which scores well in my original bucket, but just the lien alone not so well in the newer bucket and the scoring ranges overlapped.

 

It can also happen if you go from dirty to clean but usually that's because someone doesn't have much positive history to begin with... in masscredit's case he's got years of credit card and I think personal loan data too, he'll be fine if he gets his liens off, I will be too but NCAP ain't done nothing for me apparently.

Thanks Revelate for the detailed response. I really appreciate it. Now I understand better how scoring/rebucketing work. I just made entry to the 700 Club by the skin of my teeth less than two weeks ago, which was no easy feat. I only have this one unpaid Fed Tax Lien from 2010 on my CRs and no other derogs/baddies. I sure hope I'm not rebucketed where it will cause a drop in my scores.

Re: July 10 & Tax Lien/Judgment Still Showing. Next Step?

Just checked MyBankRate (one of the Vantage monitoring sites) and I saw that my TU VS (yes, guys, I know Smiley Tongue ) had jumped from 696 to 708. I decided to check the details of my report...and whaddya know, TU has removed the 2011 civil judgment too! CK is lagging behind - they won't update for another day or so, but I think I can take it as a given that as of now, that item is gone from all 3 reports.
