I co signed for a GMAc loan for my son and he was late on the payment several times. We have since pd the car off. How long will this hurt MY credit?
A negative entry on a credit report can appear for 7.5 years from the date it was first reported delinquent.
However, the more time that passes the less weight it will carry. Also, if you have other good credit reported about you currently it will help to minimize the impact of that negative experience.
