Bad Credit

Postby Slightly Confused » Fri Feb 12, 2010 2:42 pm

Just a quick question, I have been thinking about purchasing a home and recently obtained a copy of my credit rating from veda and noticed on there there was an payment default on a mobile phone bill for $980 from back in february 2005.

Apparently this will automatically disappear from my report this month, but if I pay it out it will stay on the report for another two years ?

Will this affect me if i apply for a home loan if it no longer appears on my report ? And if i pay it and then stays on my report for another couple of years what sort of impact will that have on my ability to borrow money ?

It would be great to get some input on this as im a little confused.

Please call Veda to see if it will remain on your file if you pay it now. My understanding is that if the 5 yrs is up and this has not been paid then the Telecom company can relist the default so it stays there for another 5 years! Please discuss this with Veda Advantage as I am not so sure.

If this is removed from your credit file then banks will not take it into account when assessing a loan application, so we can get you an excellent loan at a discounted rate.
