Illegal credit reporting from landlorf

Posted by hbo08 (My Page) on

Please help me!!! Two years ago I moved out of an apartment complex after my lease ended. My lease ended in July but I asked if I could extend to a one month lease in which I moved out in August. Well, two years later it shows up on my crdit report that I owe $1100 for what I have no idea. However, the attorney office they are using for my collection says that I only owe $800 which includes attorney fees. The apartment complex never sent anything to me informing me that I owed them anything and then they report a different amount to the credit bureau than they report to their collection attorney. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this problem!!!!!!

did you pay in full the extra time you spent in your apt?

RE: Illegal credit reporting from landlord

I paid the extra month in full. As a matter of fact there was a $50.00 extra change for a month to month lease.

Write a dispute to all the credit bureaus and include a copy of your check showing the amount paid.

It may be a simple mistake--write the dispute, as indicated.

And, you might also consider contacting the landlord and asking what's up.
