THE SPERLONGA SOLUTION
HOW DO PAYMENTS GET REPORTED and WHAT DOES A NON-TRADITIONAL CREDIT OR DEBT ACCOUNT LOOK LIKE ON A CREDIT REPORT?
A sample of a how a non-traditional account will appear on a credit report:
Each reported account will list both the "Balance Amount" and the "Amount Past Due".
The "Balance Amount" is the total amount of reportable transactions, such as assessments, rent, late fees and interest on unpaid balances. The "Amount Past Due" is the portion of the "Balance Amount" that is past due as of the time of the report. The following image illustrates this scenario for payments due within 30 days.
