    I think it's this year, will it be when they refresh the report, or do you think I'll have to contact them?

    It's automatically removed after 6 years.

    Some credit reference agencies update sooner then others, but the entry will just disappear after this month yes.

    It could take up to a month (mine did) depending on the update cycle if each CRA.

    Frustrating when you have already waited 6 years, but it will be gone by this time next month without any intervention on your part.
    Hi. Martin has asked me to tell you I'm a Board Guide on the following boards: Mortgages & Endowments, Mortgage-Free Wannabe, House Buying, Renting & Selling, Small Biz & Charities' MoneySaving and Charities.
