Safely Cancelling Cards

Re: Safely Cancelling Cards

Same here...I thought cards closed by the institution was a negative on the report.  Especially if there is a manual review.  Is that not correct?

Re: Safely Cancelling Cards

Remarks are not considered in FICO scoring, so yes, the only time someone would see it is on manual review.

My EQ has a "card closed by guarantor" remark and someone would be hard pressed to tell me I'm suffering for it  (and no, my EQ is low because of CAs).  

I would assume that if they're doing manual reviews, UW would be looking at the whole of the data - a whole bunch of lates/derogs and "closed by guarantor" notations are going to look like they closed it because of the derogs.   A "closed by guarantor" for an account that's clean probably won't raise an eye and I doubt it's unusual.
