Sorry, but that is what is required under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, a federal law.  Credit reporting works both ways (1) help you to get the best rates possible and (2) help businesses to not lose money by granting credit to someone with a history of not repaying or not paying on time as agreed.

While you may want to buy a house now, it may not be possible at the desired rate, or the application may be totally denied based on your credit history.  Anyone who says they can remove negative information is either lying or may have you do something that is actually fraud and that could get you into bigger trouble than the current negatives.  Just rebuild your history with regular repayments now and that will build positives for your future.
