Thanks for all of your sharing on the thread and great luck ahead!  Indeed you're on your way.  This is complicated and painful stuff...so now that you're done with it, I suspect that you will be enjoying some better peace of mind, so enjoy and move forward :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Student Loan Rehabilitation And The Effect On Tradelines

Update:
So I called the dept of education on Friday because nothing had updated on my account. I was informed that even though my last payment was on March 30, that since FedLoan didn't pick up my loan until April 1st that they hadn't updated the credit bureaus until May 1st. Funny enough, the next day all of my Dep of Educations dropped off my report. I got a 63 point increase. Now I'm waiting on FedLoan to update their information because as long as they are showing default, I cannot get a home loan. I plan on giving them a call today.

Re: Student Loan Rehabilitation And The Effect On Tradelines

Help please!?

I completed rehabbing my student loans (4 tradelines) with General Revenue Corp. at the end of April. Sallie Mae is my new lender-which I found out thanks to this board. I contacted them and got my 1st payment in right away so it will be recorded for May instead of June. I spoke with GRC and they told me that it would take 30-60 days to update the credit reports and gave me a post-claims phone # to call that would be able to answer my questions as to dates. This is what i've been told by post-claims. They have not sent up the info to the credit agencies. They told me they send up info at the end of the month. I asked what date they received my info and it was May 2. I asked if that meant it would be reported at the end of May and she said not necessarily. They take up to 90 days to send the info to the CRA. I have the paperwork from GRC stating it would be reflected within 60 days. Who do I talk to about this GRC? Sallie Mae? They also aren't able to give me a letter saying I completed the rehab (either company) and I am waiting on this to clear so I can get per-approved for a mortgage. I need the points and the default status gone. This is my last big baddie and has been the most frustrating one! I was figuring 30-60 days, but 90?!?!?! Thank you for any advice (and for reading this rant!)

Ak19,

 

Not sure about GRC or how they do things. In my case, the Dept of Ed updated everything right away. In fact, they sent the updated info 5 days after I paid my last rehab payment. Sallie Mae won't help you in this regard. They will simply create new tradelines for you for your account with them. Most places report at the end of the month to the CRA's. What you could do is ask GRC to fax you the same data they send to the CRA's and have your lender do a rapid re-score. However, that could take up to 14 days being there is such a high volume right now.

60 and 90 days is too long. It will update faster than that. Most updates are published on the 9th or 10th of each month.

A letter saying you completed rehab will do nothing from the lender point of view. They need to see no collections on the credit report. Just call CRG again and confirm info. Ask to talk to a supervisor. How much in a hurry are you? Is the default the only bad thing on your report? If so, you should expect a 40-50 point score increase. You need a 640 (middle score) to get a FHA or USDA loan.

If you haven't, sign up for score watch on myFico. Great info there and that score will match the score your lender pulls for EQ. Lenders use Beacon 5 and that is what is ued here. Good luck!!

Re: Student Loan Rehabilitation And The Effect On Tradelines

Cardsman,

Are you showing "default" on the CC for FedLoan Servicing or does it say "permantly assingned to govt; claim filed with government"? Cause if literally doesn't show the word "default" than FedLoan servicing won't help you at all, they don't remove the other wording even though it clearly means default. I had to contact ombudsman office and I have case worker who is looking into it to get it removed because even she says that is history of default that should be removed but FedLoan Servicing isn't complying to my requests. If your says what mine says FedLoans will not help you, don't waste your time and go directly to ombudsman.

Re: Student Loan Rehabilitation And The Effect On Tradelines

I initiated a dispute after two end of month closing dates. Figured since the new loan was already reporting something had to give. The collection account TLs were deleted on Experian and I think Equifax too since I got a point bump. I initiated a dispute with TransUnion but they were reporting in a different way so I disputed all three of the TLs that were reporting so fingers crossed.

Re: Student Loan Rehabilitation And The Effect On Tradelines

Ash,

Thank you for the info & congrats on getting approved! I will try GRC again and speak to my lender. My husband and I are hoping to find and close on a house by the end of summer. This is the last baddie on my CR that needs to be resolved and it is proving to be the most difficult. My middle is at 599 (which also happens to be my myfico score as well) so 40-50 point jump would be perfect. From what I've read I'm not expecting the lates to come off. I just need the jump and the default gone. I will update with what happens.

Ak19,

 

If that's the only badie, then you should get a good jump. The new tradeline created will help with the score too. If you don't get the huge jump you need, you will still be very close and in a month or two after that, you will be there. Just keep calling. The squeeky wheel gets the oil. :smileyhappy: 

If 599 is your middle score, then I assume you will jump enough. My EQ jumped 52 points when the 4 "in collection" tradelines were deleted. This time next year I will be in the 700 club!!!! :smileyvery-happy:

If all goes well, I will close on the house at the end of next month!!!!!!!

Hi Ak...  First, yeah, I've read about that 90-day maximum timeframe for reporting the new tradeliens/loans.  But I'm wondering who your servicer is because I think many times it's the servicer, not the new lender who does the credit reporting.  You got the servicer who collects payments, deals with deferments, and who usually does the credit reporting, all on behalf of the lender.  Then you got the guarantor...the place who pays the lender in case of default.  Many times the guarantor is the same as the servicer....guarantor is probably never the lender.  So Sallie May probably aren't the ones to talk to....sounds like GRC has remained your servicer and they are most likely the ones who will be doing the reporting.  Just my thoughts.  This stuff is a huge web of multiple players...we gotta first figure out what's what and get the facts.  Phew.
