Chase Card From Chapter 7 BK Is Reporting As Positive

I filed for Chapter 7 BK 9/2009 and discharged  1/2010. All my accounts reported correctly zero balance IIB. I pulled all three credit reports and all the accounts that were included in the bankruptcy correctly fell off except for a Chase card on my Experian report that I opened in early 2008. This account is now reporting $0 balance/paid as of 10/2009, closed/never late and account closed at credit grantors request. The account is scheduled to fall off 10/2019. There are no lates or derogatory marks showing on the account. Should I have Experian delete it or hope it continues to report as is and just let it age off?

Why would you want to have a positive tradeline deleted? It's been 7 years... I Doubt it's going to suddenly change to negative now. Smiley Happy

An account that does not show any lates is not necessarily a "positive account."

It can still have adverse information reporting, such as discharged under BK.

 

Monthly delinquencies must become excluded no later than 7 years from date of occurence.

However, discharged under BK can remain for up to 10 years.

 

You appear to have an account that no longer shows any monthly delinquencies, but nonetheless still shows adverse information.

The account is listed under accounts in good standing. Listed as closed never late. On the other two reports it has been deleted. I was under impression the account drops off 7 years after date of first derogatory being 9/2009.

Yes, a derogatory account falls off 7 years from first report of derog, but it sounds like on EX it was never reported as derogatory. Was it a derogatory account on TU & EQ? Did you have a balance on it? If not then Chase just closed it when they learned of the BK but if it had no balance included in BK and never late then they would mark it as positive, just closed by credit granter.

 

I filed BK7 in 9/2010, discharged 1/2011. I have a Lowes card listed as a positive account, there was no usage or balance for some time before I filed and was not listed in my debts for BK. But other Synchrony cards were so when they received that notice they closed Lowes, but marked it as a Paid as Agreed, never late, just closed by credit granter. That kind of account has a positive affect on your credit report.

It is showing recent balance $0/ paid as of 10/2009. It was a derogatory on TU/EQ. The card itself was never late until I filed BK and my attorney instructed me to stop paying.

OK, then it's reporting incorrectly on EX. But if you're sure on EX it is listed under Accounts in Good Standing then it's not a negative and I'd leave it alone. If it is reporting with "closed/never late and account closed at credit grantors request" instead of "Included in BK" then it should not be a negative, even if the info is incorrect..

Re: Chase Card From Chapter 7 BK Is Reporting As Positive

I have my EX report right in front of me. There are no individual accounts listed in bad standing and all of the accounts are listed under good standing. The only derogatory showing is the bankruptcy itself listed under public records. On the other two reports the account is deleted, but I know they had shown as IIB.

Re: Chase Card From Chapter 7 BK Is Reporting As Positive

Interesting this topic should come up, as I have a similar issue with a Chase Visa that was included in my 2014 Chapter 7 BK (and is marked as such on my full credit reports) but for some reason still appears as an open account on TU. It looks like a clerical error to me because the account is clearly marked in the full credit report as having been included in the BK and consequently closed by the grantor, but it still shows up in, for example, my total available-credit figure on my TU Vantage scores.

 

UPDATE: I found the problem. The Chase card reports correctly as having been closed in bankruptcy and closed by the credit grantor, but unlike the other accounts included in BK, there is no date of closing included in the entry for that account. That must be why the account is still showing as open (unknown or derogatory, depending on the source) in CreditKarma, etc., and the CL being included in my total available revolving credit in TU. I'm preparing an investigation request form to have TU correct this because this particular reason doesn't show up in the list of reasons available for online investigation.

Ch 7 BK discharged 12/14, well along in rebuilding credit. FICO 11/2/17:TU 660/EX 694/EQ 688 FICO 8 (Aug 2017) or 680 FICO 9 (Penfed Sep 2017), VS 3.0 11/7/17: TU 704/EX 690/EQ 697. $32.3K revolving credit as of 11/7/17; $951 Cap One secured Platinum MC, $2000 Apple FCU Platinum Visa,$3500 Amazon Prime Store Card, $3500 Walmart Store Card, $3500 Cap One Quicksilver MC, $3600 Discover It, $4000 Care Credit, $4300 Overstock Store Card, $7000 Penfed Power Cash Rewards Visa, $10k PenFed used car loan, $5k Navient student loan. In the garden again from 10/26/17 for at least the next 3 months unless I get a really really good preapproval.
