7 year rule : Does bad credit really go away after seven years?
Do you Remember 2011?
In 2011, now 7 years ago, a bunch of crazy things happened. Osama Bin Laden was killed, Prince William married Catherine Middleton, Steve Jobs Died, and Obama released his birth certificate! If you also stopped paying some or all of your debts in 2011, then 2018 is YOUR year. We are talking about foreclosures, short sales, credit card debts, auto loans medical bills, etc, all that will reach it’s statute of limitations for credit reporting under the Fair Credit Reporting act in 2018.
But what exactly is the statue of limitations, and can it be reset? What if the debt collector sells it off to another debt collector? What if you dispute it, can that reset it? The questions and scenearios are limitless and we go deep into the topic of the seven year statute to explain all the nuances of the most misunderstood credit reporting myth!
