3 Things to Know About Collections in a Credit Report
A credit report offers the history of all accounts and their respective payments.
Here are things to know about collections in a credit report, according to Experian.
- Negative information, such as collections, stays on a credit report for seven years and is based on the original delinquency date of the original debt.
- The day of the first missed payment can also be the starting point for the seven years a collection can stay on a credit report.
- Collection accounts and the accounts of the original creditors may appear on a credit report at the same time. If both appear on the credit report, they will be deleted at the same time.
