    I was made redundant in 2010, and defaulted on my debts in early 2011. The first one to default was 16th March 2011, so it will have passed the six year mark today. Five more defaults to come off, with the last one on 31st May. Hoping to see whether the account has dropped off my Noddle report in the next couple of weeks. Feels like almost the end of the road, just got 2 more debts to settle now.

    Some of my creditor updates to my CRA files are two or three months behind. So just be aware your defaults will fall off, but it may take just a bit longer than you would hope for.

    Great news for you.
