Fixing Credit After A Northeast OH Short Sale Step 6: Why It’s So Important To Document Everything

Northeast OH – I mentioned in the last note that you’ll need to keep a file of records about your credit restoration process. This is an important part of the process, and deserves a bit more than a brief mention.

The credit reporting companies have 30 days (by law), to investigate and handle the disputes submitted to them. This is why you submitted everything through certified mail.

That enables you to record the time firmly for the credit reporting firms to respond within. But it’s more than that. This file will become important for a long time for you.

Many people successfully removed items from their credit reports. Later on they found those same items show back up on their credit report months in the future! Having a record of your efforts and the results is needed to keep your record blemish free in the future.

Make your records easy to follow. You will need to keep the original copy of your credit reports here, as well as the copies you’ve made notes and comments on.

Keep copies of the letters you send to the credit reporting companies. Keep the Certified Mail slips. File any correspondence that the credit reporting companies send to you.

Keep a journal in your file of any telephone conversations you have with any of the creditors or credit reporting companies. Record in this journal the names, dates, times, and notes of these phone calls.

In addition, have a method to remind yourself of “action step dates” – those dates where you expect to have a certain action done by the credit reporting firms.

This can be a calendar you keep on the front of the file, or use Outlook’s calendar feature, or your calendar app on your phone.

This may seem like your credit report has become your new part time job, but with a little bit of organization and perseverance, it will be worth it!
