How Long Does It Take For Deleted Items To Report?


Hi All,


I have four pay for delete collection.  How long will it take for these items to drop from my credit report? 

And is there anything I can do to speed up the process?  Maybe contact the credit bureau?

Re: How Long Does It Take For Deleted Items To Report?

Whenever I've obtained a deletion, they creditor told me it would take 30-45 days to actually be deleted, but I usually see it dissapear within a few weeks. For example, I just received a GW deletion 2 weeks ago and I believe 2 of the 3 reports is no longer showing it. But don;t get frustrated... I imagine sometimes it does take the full 30-45 days.

Starting Score: EX 516 TU 565
Current Score: EX 514 TU 573

To add, most OCs/CAs only update once per month. There really isn't a way to speed things up without risking a further delay.
