The goal is to get your letter read, taken seriously, and responded to.
**Make sure you make a copy of whatever you are sending to the credit bureaus.** Just keep all your credit reports, letters, etc. in a file so you can use these later (this will be important.)
Send your letter, a copy of the credit report with the items you are disputing noted in Sharpie, and a copy of your driver’s license to each of the credit reporting companies.
This step CAN be a bit tricky, even though it should be the easiest step of all! Here’s why – the credit reporting firms don’t really like to deal with these dispute letters, and they change their mailing address for submitting these requests fairly often.
You will need to go to the website for Experian, Equifax, and Trans Union to get their dispute address.
BUT DO NOT SUBMIT YOUR DISPUTES ONLINE, like their websites pushes you to do. If you do this, your request is less likely to be taken seriously, and you won’t have any written record of what you submitted.
Send each of your letters as Certified Mail. Your local post office will help you with this.
Put the copy of the certification slip into your file as well. The certification slip ensures that you have a timeline started for restoring your credit. Thinking about a short sale?

Alice Monroe, Corali Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
