Question about an original creditor withdrawing a collections claim
Last month in came to my attention that the apartment complex I lived in the previous year had sent something to collections. I contacted the apartments and the agreed to withdraw the claim to the collections company when the bill was paid to them. I have two questions. First, I paid the bill about two weeks ago and checked my score today and it doesn't appear as though the claim has been with drawn. How long should I wait before I start to worry? And second, when the collections agency receives the notice of with drawl and drops the account how will that impact my credit score?
