HELOC

My lender reports my HELOC as revolving credit.  These are maxed because I borrowed as 80/10 and always meant to use the $ just like a 2nd Mortgage. The credit agencies report that I have zero balances on about $30,000 of credit card limits, but my $68,000 of 2nd mortgage HELOCs make for excessive revolving debt.  Huh?  How do I change the way that is reported?

Re: HELOC

Ask the lender to report your HELOC as installment.

Re: HELOC

FYI... Heloc's report the same as a credit card. I have never seen a Heloc as a second report as a mortgage.

Re: HELOC

Can you explain why my HELOC is added to my mortgage balance by two of the CRA's?  It's not included with my revolving charges on my credit reports.   I'm new here so all explanations will be helpful.
