GW Letters.. a few questions...

I'm getting ready to mail out a bunch of GW and PFD letters to creditors on both mine and my hubby's credit reports.  On the accounts that we share (joint account) can I reference both of us and our info?  Or should I submit 2 separate letters?
 
Also, does anyone know how long it takes to get a response through the GW and PFD letters?  I'm hoping to clear up some of these old CC's that have 1 30 day late each in like 7 years total (all from 2003 or later) that have had perfect history in the last 4 years.  But I'd like it done quickly... as we're trying to buy a new house.
 
Thanks!

One letter is fine for joint accounts.
 
They is no guarantee that you will even get a response.. But if you do it should be within 30 days.

Thanks!!
 
And I should send the letters to the creditor's themselves, right?  Not the CRA?
 
This is my first time doing this whole GW/PFD thing.  I never realized how much crap was in my CR and want to clean it up.
 
Thanks!!
