An equitable lien is a special lien type thats issued by the court to maintain fairness. Typically they're used in the case of trust theft and embezzlement to ensure repayment. This can seriously damage your credit if the lien results in an account that goes to collections.

Equitable liens and your credit

Equitable liens are a special lien type that protects victims of crimes like theft and embezzlement. The court issues a lien on behalf of the victim against the guilty party that guarantees a stake in property if they don't repay a specified debt. How does this affect credit? If the debt isn't repaid (& it goes into collections) it could ruin your credit.

If this happens to you, a great next step is to start rebuilding your credit. The best way to rebuild your credit? Find (& dispute) any inaccurate negative items. Sound difficult? Team up with a knowledgeable expert (like Credit Glory) and make rebuilding your credit a breeze.

When can you dispute negative items (& rebuild your credit)

You can dispute negative items IF your info is reported inaccurately.

Common incorrect info includes:

  • Names and addresses
  • The reported balance
  • Duplicate records
  • Delinquency dates

If one (or more) items on this list aren't correct, it's your right to dispute their claim — and Credit Glory's experience can make it a lot easier!

How to dispute and boost your credit (& why a pro makes it easier)

The best tool to rebuild your credit is a dispute. You can dispute either DIY or w/help from a professional (like Credit Glory). Here is the process (& why working w/an expert is the easiest way).

Step 1: Check your credit report for inaccurate items

Disputing negative items starts with identifying inaccurate reporting. Wondering how to find errors? Look at the detailed info for negative items from all 3 credit reports. Sound like too much work? An expert like Credit Glory quickly finds mistakes, making the process a breeze.

Step 2: Write a dispute letter

There are several options for drafting a dispute letter. You can start from scratch — or find a template online. The tricky part is finding a legit template — especially when Google gives over 74 million search results! On the other hand, a partner like Credit Glory handles this for you, removing the headache.

Step 3: Collect supporting docs

If you can find a legit sample letter, you need to clearly state your name, address, and what you are disputing. Then collect all relevant documents to support your claim. The catch? Make sure you send copies — not originals. Optionally, Credit Glory makes this easier, knowing exactly what to send (& where to send it).

Step 4: Wait for a decision

If you manage to write a letter, compile the documents, and find out where to send your letter — the last step is waiting for results. Assuming you did everything perfectly, the dispute results are sent to you in writing. The result? After a long wait — sometimes months — the record may be removed. If you let Credit Glory help, you have access to support throughout the whole dispute process.
