I paid some charged off debt as requested by a mortgage lender, will this increase ny credit score?
In applying for a mortgage the lender requested that I pay some specific debt. One an installment loan and a few other small ones. I have done that, will my credit score increase? I also have some charged off credit card debt listed but it is also listed with a collection agency. In reviewing my application, are they NOT looking at that and should I contact the ORIGINAL creditor that charged off and negociate the ORIGINAL amount which is considerably lower because interest has accrued with the collection agency. Doing so would that increase my credit score and can I have the debt collection reporting removed if I do contact the original creditor?
