Removing Disputes On Credit Report

The latest hurdle in getting mortgage approval is to have all disputes on credit removed. Since a tradeline (account) dispute removes that account history from the credit scoring models, the investors have become wise to inaccurate credit scores due to disputes. Often times when a dispute is removed a credit score will go down (especially if the tradeline has a negative history, excessive balance or is recently opened). You will want to have all the disputes on your credit report removed prior to submitting a mortgage application. First, review your credit information by visiting www.annualcreditreport.com and retrieving your free reports (note – it will not give you scores for free and you can only access the information once per year, so make it count!).

Through annualcreditreport.com you can remove disputes, or you can also call the bureaus direct here:
