Step 4 To Fix Your Credit After A Pierce County Short Sale: Write The Credit Bureaus

No Comments

Woman-LaptopPierce County WA – Using your work on the credit report, you are ready to take action. You are now going to write a letter to the credit bureaus about the items you’ve highlighted and noted.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

You are writing to the credit bureaus because they are the ones reporting the information – it is up to them to change what they report.

The goal is to get bad things deleted from your credit report in order to improve your score.

Do not go to Google, or bing and try to find a form letter than you should send in for this step! The credit reporting companies can spot those like a hunting dog can spot a duck.

You will not get anywhere with a “canned” letter, and will damage your chances of ever resolving issues.

Your letter should sound like you are frustrated (which you undoubtedly are), and should sound authentic. But, do sound polite and friendly.

Don’t sound like an expert, but do sound like you expect action. In this round of letters – your aim is to have the credit bureaus remove items that are hurting your credit score.

The bureau will then have to investigate your dispute and REMOVE any of the disputed items if they can’t prove them to be accurate (this involves them contacting the original creditor and verifying with them – all within the short 30 day window allowed by law).

Here is the basic outline to follow for your first round of letters you send:

At the TOP of the letter, put your name, SSN, current address (and state lived there for X years), and your DOB.

Say something about how you’ve just reviewed your credit report, and found items that are inaccurate.

List the items BRIEFLY. Say something like: “Chase Credit Card xxx-xxx-xxxx, listed for 30 days late. I have never been late on this account,” or “Citi Credit Card xxx xxxx xxx listed as collections. This is false.”

Note that you are upset / worried / distressed / embarrassed about these items, since you know they are negatively affecting your credit score.

Ask that these items be deleted from your report immediately.

Add Sincerely, and your name below. Sign the letter.

Include a photo copy of your driver’s license as proof that you are you making this request. Also include proof if you have it (credit card statement from the month where they say you were late when you weren’t.)

The next step is to submit this letter. Thinking about a short sale?
