Thanks for responding. TransUnion deleted this TL and it was a mortgage tradeline at that from 1999 and I needed for it to stay I only asked that they get the wording correct as I did not put this in my bankruptcy to discharge, we actually continued paying on this mortgage until it was sold to another company.. I think this positive trade was helping my fico but the wording that said "included or part of Chapt. 7 BK" which it was not.
If the account was reaffirmed as part of the BK, the creditor can only report the TL up to the date of the BK. When I filed back in 1998 I reaffirmed two car loans that were never late and current and the Creditors stopped reporting my payments from my discharge date until I traded in the cars
If the account was reaffirmed as part of the BK, the creditor can only report the TL up to the date of the BK.
Is that by law, or just customary?
I don't have any experiance with this, but just out of sheer determination I would still try with the creditor. State your case, tell them what your trying to do with your credit, (for your family, your kids, your sick grandmother, blah blah blah) and that you could really use the mortgage tradeline on your reports. If you have any kind of local office I would try to get a warm body to plead with, maybe even shed a tear or two....
My mortgage TL's only go back to 2004, but I know what you mean. I cherish them dearly. I would do anything before I made a late payment. (well, almost anything )
