    Chapter 13 and Credit Bureaus

    So, here's some things I have learned as my Chapter 13 aged off my account:
    • Assuming that the debtor filed a Chapter 13 on May 28, 2014.
    • Assuming that 7 years from May 28, 2014 is May 28, 2021.
    • (For a Chapter 7 it would be 10 years from May 28, 2014 which is May 28, 2024. The same early exclusion periods would apply at 6 months, 3 months and 1 month.)
    • These were not my dates. I used a late day in May to demonstrate the exclusion date.
    With those as parameters, here is what I learned...
    • For the following major credit bureaus, the "exclusion" date is the 1st of the month. Based on our example, the working date for removal is May 1, 2021.
    • Trans Union, you can dispute the bankruptcy 6 months prior. Given our assumptions, we can dispute this on November 1, 2020. (I did this via on-line dispute and it was removed within several hours!) I do not know when they automatically stop reporting since I did the 6 month early exclusion dispute.
    • Experian, this automatically stopped being reported 3 months prior. Given our assumptions, this will automatically stop reporting on February 1, 2021.
    • Equifax... do not call them or write them. The entry will be removed 1 month prior. Given our assumptions, this will automatically stop reporting on April 1, 2021. Just let the exclusion kick in automatically!

    Please take note that your credit scores could go up or down with the removal of the bankruptcy! Older accounts being removed could affect your Average Age of Accounts (AAoA) and you could suffer from the FICO phenomenon known as rebucketing.

    Good stuff justbroke, at this point I'm assuming your TU scores went up and your EX scores either just went up or are about to. Any update on what your EQ scores are doing?

      My EQ score went down to just over 670. I was definitely a victim of rebucketting! No worries, I'll get back into the 700s. Also, the drop may be due to EQ automatically removing some IIB accounts. These were older accounts which included a vehicle (installment) loan from 2012. I have a couple of new accounts that are < 2 months old so I'm sure I'm taking a beating for my average age of accounts. I also self-removed myself from 2 authorized user accounts during the last month.

      I'll give it another month or two to see if things settle down.

      I'm not happy, but the removal of the "public record" does look nice. Woohoo! I can now say that I haven't filed bankruptcy within the last 7 years! I'm thinking of jumping further into this housing market before and after it implodes. I want to be ready and leverage existing holdings if the market collapses. I don't wish that it collapses -- since I'm holding property -- but I want to be in a position to buy.

        While I have no property holdings, I too am thinking there might be a collapse. Funny thing, due to travel requirements for both my current job as well as the jobs which I'm being recruited for, living here on the horse farm may no longer be viable. Over the last few days I started looking at options for buying or renting some time later this year. Ummm, wow, has the market changed since last fall. Back then there were literally dozens of homes and apartments available to rent or buy, now, crickets! In our current town there isn't a single 3-4 bedroom home, townhome, condo, or apartment available either for rent or to buy, not one! This kind of demand simply cannot last (or maybe it can and I've got it all wrong).

        So, 2022, after my Chapter 13 falls off, is my target year for buying; time will tell if the market is kind to me, or if this crazy market keeps going like it is.

          Just what I suspected. Received an alert just now that "An account was removed." This will be fun as they now remove all my old accounts that were marked IIB. I may need to add the authorized user (AU) accounts back so that my AAoA is good again.
