More About This Show
Since the last time I spoke to Wayne Sanford, much has changed in the world of credit scoring. A new lawsuit, initiated by the New York State Attorney General, has concluded that public records should be removed from credit reports. Wayne explains that there are many arguments on both sides, but the conclusion rests on the fact that sharing a consumer's Social Security number is a privacy issue.
According to Wayne, this is a vast change. However, just because a deficiency or judgment is gone from a consumer’s credit report, doesn’t mean it’s completely erased from history. These debts must be satisfied.
If a consumer wants to work with a bank, not much can be done if they have a deficiency or lien. A judgment supersedes the first lien position, under any circumstance.
With the new changes to the tax reports, banks will have to go directly to the companies that report these public records. And for many people, this could be an issue when applying for a big purchase, such as a mortgage.
On today’s show, Wayne is sharing more about this shift in the credit scoring system. He’ll discuss contacting credit bureaus, and how to handle deficiencies and judgments. We’ll talk about why this change is happening, what it means for consumers, and much more!
