BT default still showing after payment made

Hello,

Back in May this year I managed to pay an old debt to BT that was showing as a default on my credit score. Since then I would have expected it to be updated on ClearScore and it is not. I have confirmation from BT that it is resolved, as per below, however no updates are showing. Do I need to do anything else to have this updated? Thank you in advance.

Hi @nmintilana, sorry your credit file is still not updated. When you view your credit file on one of the free services such as Noddle/Clearscore, they can only view a new report every 30 days. Have more than 30 days passed since the account was settled?

cheers

John

Hi @nmintilana, thanks for posting back and that should be updated by now. I've had a look at Clearscore disputes information refers to Equifax. If you haven't already got an open dispute you may need to contact Equifax and raise this.

Cheers

John

Updated in the sense it should show a "settled" debt? It should show that.

The deafault though will stay there until it expires (around 6 years from the default) that's my understanding.

Yes, @FTT  I'm aware of the 6 years until it expires. I am expecting it to show as "satisfied" or "settled" since it's been paid, so I'll try to contact Equifax.

Thank you for the input👍
