Mortgage Credit Report

Nearly all home buyers have their mortgage information on their credit report. If a home buyer does a good job, having your mortgage on a credit report is a great benefit; if the home owner has trouble keeping up with payments, having the mortgage on the credit report may be more than a small problem.

A mortgage is likely the largest credit transaction a consumer will make. The type of mortgage and the interest rate the consumer receives will depend, on large part, on their credit record. The interest rate can also be affected by the amount of money the consumer requests and the amount of collateral they are willing to put into the deal upfront. If the consumer can not afford much of a down payment, they may have to pay a higher interest rate. This information on the mortgage goes on the credit report.

Once the mortgage is signed an in effect, anything having to deal with the mortgage can go on a credit report. Whether or not any positive or negative information is relayed by the mortgage company to the credit agencies is purely up to them.

Most mortgage companies allow a grace period of 15 days for a consumer to make their monthly payment. Any payment made during those 15 days is considered to be on time. If the payment Is made within the next few days after the grace period, it is usually overlooked. If the mortgage payment is substantially late, however, then this information is usually relayed to credit agencies as a delinquency.

If a payment or multiple payments are missed, this is where having a mortgage on a credit report can become a real problem for a consumer. While some mortgage companies will even allow a mortgage payment to be missed if the payment is made over time, others will report the missed payment as soon as it is 30 days overdue. Missed mortgage payments can have a devastating impact on a consumer’s credit.

A consumer must make sure that a mortgage company does not put bad mortgage information on a credit report. Constant monitoring of credit reports will allow them to ensure that no inaccuracies are potentially damaging their credit.
