How to Remove Negative Listing on my Credit Report
Your Credit Report
The way to remove a negative listing really depends on the nature of the listing itself. In the case of payment defaults and judgements, it is all about applying the correct legislation that is in place to protect the consumer against how the listing was originally entered by the credit provider. When a credit provider enters a negative listing against someone, they are required to follow a very strict process before they are legally allowed to enter a listing on a credit report. In many cases this process is not followed and on this basis many negative listings can be removed from a credit file.
Court Judgements on Your Credit Report
Listings such as Court Judgements are dealt with in a very different fashion. Although it is helpful to identify an inconsistency with the listing, a Court Judgment does not necessarily need to be faulty or contestable to be removed from a credit file. Much of this process is dependent on the Plaintiff being agreeable to allow for the discontinuance of the matter. For this reason it can be advantageous if the Court Judgment is unpaid as the payment of the amount outstanding can often be used as leverage for cooperation from the Plaintiff and ultimately the removal of the listing from a credit report.
