Discharged 4 years ago and building good credit ever since.
Only 1 more year for it to fall off into oblivion...
Does anyone have recommendations for when I should start asking for early removal and how persistent I should be with each reporting agency?
Chapter 13 is 7 years.
Chapter 7 is 10 years...
Hit up TU 6 months out, EX 3 months out, EQ dont even bother at 1 month. They're so screwed up they may add another 7 yrs. LOL!!!!!!
I know everybody's file is different and so this is purely speculative but any educated opinion would be appreciative.
Here are some data points to help...
My BK13 is set to drop off as of Nov 2020 and hopefully I will get them dropped off a little sooner.
Fico8 scores as of now are EQ: 686, TU: 665 and EX: 675
AAoA 2 years 0 months (Started rebuilding right after BK13 was discharged)
AoOA Opened: 3Years 6 months / AoOA Closed: 19 Years
25 Total Accounts. 14 Opened and 11 Closed.
0 missed payments on report / 0 Collections.
Great credit mix (Mortgage, Auto, Credit Cards and Heloc)
Always under 1% of utilization.
Newest account 6 months
10 Inquiries (Most of them are from HELOC/Refinance shopping so not sure how it is counted.)
4 derogs but all are "Included in Chapter 13" comments not missed payment or collections.
Debt to Income is very low (8%)
Other than the BK, when do those derog accounts fall off? If all the other details are correct those 4 accounts seem to be weighing you down quite a bit. I would guess that you will see some sort of increase once the BK drops though.
The derogs are from 4 accounts that are showing up in my reports as "Included in Bankruptcy" so I would aassume they should fall off aat the same time the BK does.
I would think maybe 20-30 points?
I think your derogs are why you are not in the 700s now.
Ch 13 time starts with filing date not discharge date.
Derogs will stay as long as they normally would - I think.
DON'T WORK FOR CREDIT CARDS ... MAKE CREDIT CARDS WORK FOR YOU!5% Rotating - Discover 5%-20% - Amazon & Lowes 3-6% Groceries - NFCU & Amex Preferred
The reason these 4 accounts are showing up on my report asa derogs are that they state "Included in Bankruptcy" They are not in there for late/missing payments.
Shouldn't the comment about being in Bankruptcy be removed from these accounts once the BK falls off?
And the BK is set to fall off in 11 more months as it was filed a little over 6 yeaars ago.
If the BK ends in 11 months. All the lates should go with it being past 7 yrs.
