I have a similar situation, with a student loan  judgement that has been paid and has been reported as paid on TU and EQ. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance...

If this is not a paid judgement you are in the best position to negoitiate.  Although univ. has judgement that does not get them paid.  You should call university someone who handles delinquencies and negoitate for deletion.. from all 4 credit agencies did you go to court ? were you properly served?

Re: Advise on my Public record please

The two basic paths for handling deletion of a judgment are (1) to get the judgment itself vacated, and then argue CR deletion based on the removal of the judgment, and (2) to get the party who reported the adverse item to the CRA to delete their prior reporting.

 

Getting a judgment vacated requires a motion before the court, as only the court can vacate their own judgment.  Some courts wont vacate a judgment unless their is some showing of legal or procedural error in the proceeding.  However, some courts will vacate a judgment based on its satisfaction (payment).  I suggest you give a call to the clerk of the judgment court and have a chit-chat about the practice of your specific judgment court.  If vacating based on payment is an option before that court, then you can pursue that path.

 

You can also, similar to any other information reported to a CRA, get the reporting party to simply report its deletion to the CRA.  The normal problem with that approach is that in most instances, the name of the actual reporting party is not known.  CRAs hire private firms to research public records and report them. They are not usually reported by the court itself, and sometimes not even by the judgment creditor.

 

I suggest first making a call to the clerk of the court, and seek advice on the practice of that court.

Pay the judgement amount off. You call the univeristy (or whomever is handling the collections for them) and negotiate payment arrangments. If you have a decent sum of money (i.e., $3500), you can ask if they would accept that as payment in full. If they say yes, you get it in writing, and pay them. Once it is paid then work on getting it off your report. It will stay on your report until March 2015, BUT they are allowed to renew the judgement for another 7 years, making that March 2022.

Re: Advise on my Public record please

That may be my last baddie attempted due to the amount. I will just pay in full and send the Vice President a good will letter explaining what happened in 2006 with the FEMA disaster. Hopefully they take my certified Bank Check. I will ask her to remove judgement and collection and explain to her it was important forr me to pay this in full because without the loan I wouldn't have graduated.
