Are There Negative Items That Can Stay on Your Credit Forever?
Is it true, there are some negative items on your credit that you can’t remove?
If you’re thinking about bankruptcy, the negative information on your credit report should be taken care of within 10 years.
However, yes there are some uncommon exceptions where negative items can stay on your credit report forever….
If the consumer is applying for $150,000 or more in credit:
This also qualifies as a case where the credit bureaus could include old negative information that normally would not be listed on their report if they apply and receive loans of this size from multiple sources within 90 days of each other – but there are some catches! For instance: If you’re looking to take out another loan regardless (and assuming no pre-existing agreements), going over 70% LTV with your next application will make things difficult since it means we’ll see both positive AND negatives events come through our system at once; meaning one might have priority over
$150K life insurance application:
If you’re applying for a life insurance policy with a value over $150,000 then the credit reporting agencies are allowed to include negative information that is more than 7-10 years old on your report.
If the consumer is applying for a job with a $75K or more yearly salary:
If a consumer is going to apply for the position of $75,000 or more with an employer who uses credit reports as part of their background check process and they have derogatory events from 7-10 years ago on file like bankruptcy filings or collections accounts – then these are allowed to be reported in.
Why Is It Worth Being Worried About Negative Items Staying on Your Credit Report Forever?
Nowadays, you may be concerned that derogatory credit items from years ago could haunt you in the future. For instance, if an employer was to check your record and see these marks they might not give employment opportunities or loans for mortgages because of how bad it looks with them still showing up as a negative status despite being removed by law which is why we should always remain vigilant about maintaining good standing even after taking care all old debts.
Rather than maintaining old information to be used in specific situations, they simply default to applying the same 7-10 year policy across the board.
When you are looking at a job with an annual salary range of $75K-$150K or more (and if so then life insurance and credit), your new employer won’t find any negative items on file from 10+ years ago about debt repayment plans that don’t work out as expected – even though these may have been relevant back when those were happenings during his/her tenure!
Hopefully, you now understand the rare circumstances when a negative item will be viewable on your credit report forever.
