Why did my credit score drop 14 points when my mortgage was transferred to a new servicer?
My mortgage was transferred to a new servicer but the old servicer's account was not marked closed, so my credit report was showing double the mortgage amount as total debt. I asked that the old account be updated as closed and my score went down 14 points. Why is my score affected by the actions of others beyond my control?
