Late lease payments have definitely do affect your credit score
up to 30 days late no. After that they report to credit bereus

Hi could use some advice here, my first card I opened up(oldest credit line) was a capital one semi secured card(If put down 50$ they give me 200$ credit line, I put 500 so they gave me 650) this was around a year and half ago and since then I opened a freedom unlimited card around 6 months ago. I wanna move on from my capital one card but I wanna keep the credit line, I've heard upgrading the card keeps the credit line but there still gonna be a hard pull(3 of them Bec its capital one) is it worth upgrading to something like the venture one and will it keep my credit line?

650 credit line it's not much. I will not be afraid to "lose" this line, as with another not secure card if you're approved you will get at least 1000 if not higher.

the big trick for a beginner is IMHO to focus on the line utilization. (always use less than 10-15% of your credit line, and then after a few months it should get/ask for a higher line.)

I donít think you can upgrade Capital One secure card to any other card. Only option to close it.

This has never happened to me before, but I missed a payment on a Citi card by 30 days. It was a small payment that did not show up in my Mint app which I use to track all my credit cards.

What is the best way to deal with this to get it removed from my report?

I'm looking on my credit report from Transunion from AnnualCreditReport.com and the ratings are mostly current but there are a few months that are not reported or unknown. Should I call the lender to fix?

Thanks friends!

Your best bet is to ask at creditboards.com as they are the go to forum for that type of stuff.

I got a 30 day late payment report on my credit report. I got the bank to take it off.  (I had car lease on auto pay and when I extended the lease, autopay wasnít activated properly ) How long should it take for the credit bureaus to take it off ?
