Evergreen, Colo., January 27, 2015 – Experian® has agreed to reverse their newly instituted rule about removing dispute remarks. The rule stated that a letter from the creditor was required to remove any dispute remarks during the rescore process. Effective immediately, they have agreed to go back to accepting letters from borrowers.
Experian® was open to listening to industry concerns regarding this change and their decision to reverse the policy has made many in the industry very happy.
Experian® originally made the change because they were getting complaints from data furnishers who were unhappy that a dispute remark was removed. Now, Experian will notify data furnishers that they have removed an “account in dispute” comment through the Dispute Resolution Notification process. This will allow Experian® to continue to remove the comments using the previous process of letters from the borrower.
