Collections during underwriter

I have a situation for friend of mine..

 

His FHA loan approved. Closing is by end of May. He suddenly got a letter from collection owing $50. The collection agency said they have not reported to any bureaus yet. Hearing this, my friend paid the $50. Will this ever showing up on credit report or reduce points when his credit is pulled at closing ?? Please advise..he is terribly upset..

Re: Collections during underwriter

If they haven't reported, its possible they wont since its pif now. Question is if the original creditor has reported the balance transferred to collections. Unless he is on the knifes edge for approval i doubt it would derail his approval even if it did report

The letter was dispatached on 4/12 and he received 4/20. In the meantime, his lender pull his credit report the second time on 4/14 since the first one already past 90 days. The second credit report did not show any collections and infact bumped up his score. so given this date timings, do you he is okay?

Re: Collections during underwriter

What collection company was it? Who was the OC?

 

Usually a collection company can not report during the 30 day validation period.  This is the first 30 days.  PIF would mean no validation is needed seeing he validated the debt by payment.

 

If they report it, I don't thin it would be reported for 30-45 days.  Because the letter date would be the statement date and then you have your reporting date when they report which could be the end of month.

 

But honestly I don't think a PIF would appear for $50 on a collection when paid the next day.

Yes a soft pull will show anything currently on your report, except soft pulls from others ( with some exceptions) and will not show any credit scores.

Re: Collections during underwriter

collector sent first letter but not on credit report. They have given 30 days to respond. But if he goes and makes the payment (collector said they have not reported to credit bureau) right away, does that mean this will never go into his credit report. Period?
