What Is The Difference Between A Default And An Overdue Account On Your Credit Rating?

About the only real difference is the name. On an Equifax (Formerly Veda Advantage) credit file ordered directly by a consumer, you might see the heading “Overdue Account(s)” but the same listing from a business subscriber, you might see it called a “Default”.

What Is A Judgment?

A Judgment relates to court proceedings filed against you and the subsequent order made by a court that you owe a debt.

You may also have other public record listings on your credit files including court actions and court writs. Judgments and court actions stay listed on your report for 5 years while court writs are listed for 4 years.
