Info is only updated

When the info is updated by your creditors,  This can take up to 90 days or longer. It all depends on hte lender.

The lenders pay each time your info is reported. Sometimes, Specially when balances were low or paid off completely, they will decide to save a few pennies and not report you account for a month or two.

Also realize that most creditors report to only 1 credit bureaus at a time.  Then that bureuas reports to the other two once a month. That alone can take up to 60 days.  Credit reporting, Even in the days of computers is still a slow moving behemounth that takes time.  With nearly 3 billion credit reports to update every month, nothing happens quickly. 

Good luck
