Judgment, collections, utilization and inquiry

The last week my Equifax has seen a lot of changes.  My oldest account is 20 years and my AAOA is 6)  Thought some of you might find this interesting.

 

659  3/30/13 Paid judgment '10, 3 collections ('08 paid, '10 paid, '06 not paid) 3 student loans in good standing, visa 356/500

 

670  4/3/13 Judgment is vacated and delted

 

715  4/3/13 Collection ages off and I call about the 2 paid ones and they immediately remove them

 

704  4/4/13  Hit with an inquiry (this makes 3 for Equifax) - This stinks as I got denied for the USAA card I applied for and it cost me 11 pts!

 

731  4/6/13  Visa now reports 155/1000

Re: Judgment, collections, utilization and inquiry

Ok, so I am going to see this fall again.  I just took another inquiry.  I was approved for Chase Freedom.  I am going to be getting a mortgage for my house and banker said I needed another credit card (I have one with them and a VS)  This will make three.  He adviced to have four.  

 

My questions:

 

1.  How long will the inquires hurt my score?  How long until I start to see some of the points come back.  I know after a year you have all the points back.

 

2.  What can I expect having a third card report?  It is Chase Freedom with $1000 cl.  I will keep it at a zero balance.  (use once a month and pay off before it reports).  The only other things reporting is one student loan, 10 mo CU VISA $150/1000 and 1 mo VS $0/350.  I also have 2 paid of student loans.  NO baddies at all.  Oldest account is 20 years and AAoA is 6 years.

Was the inquiry made by the debt collector on the collection that had passed its CR exclusion date?

No, it's from a credit card app I made.  

 

The two collections that I called and they removed immediatly were from a court order.  I took the collection agency to court because they kept reporting on me for a debt that the original creditor said I didn't owe and the collection agency refused to remove it.  (Hospital bill that was sent to collection agency on mistake).  In the end the judge dismissed everything with prejudice.  I faxed the court order to EQ and they removed the judgment but not the 2 collection accounts.  When I told her the second paragraph clearly said that everything was to be dismissed and that all trace of these debts are to be erased from all sources they promptly removed everything.
