    Getting creditor to change default date?

    Getting creditor to change default date? 13th Mar 17 at 4:48 PM

    I entered a Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS) Scotland in October 2011. From this I now have 3 defaults my credit file. M&S and RBS have marked default from the date I entered this scheme (27.10.11) however MBNA have marked the default April 2012.

    I have just had a baby and we are desperately hoping to be able to get a mortgage once the defaults have gone and were hoping for the end of this year. Is there anything I can do to get MBNS to change the date to 27.10.11?

    Many thanks

    It's worth contacting them to ask however it's unlikely they will change this. A default is normally registered on your credit report 3-6 months from the date you went in to arrears.
