I had a contractor dispute and he filed a lien.
A Mr Sandless floor guy did a terrible job on our floors. He filed a lien and took us to court. Judgement was in his favor. We paid in full promptly. What or how long will this remain on our records?

All three major reporting companies have been contacted...

Thank you,
V/r

Yes and has been updated in the court system as well as all three major reporting agencies.

The judgement will stay on your report for 7 years. However, when you apply for credit this can be explained to a potential creditor and likely not affect your ability to get a loan.
