Removing Disputes from Your Credit Report:
It can be very simple, but you still have to be careful to be formal enough, and follow the procedures. Here’s how to do it.
Check Your Annual Credit Report:
Before taking any action, claim your free annual credit report, and make sure which dispute comments are still shown. Removing disputes may have positive or negative impact to your credit score. In case of a disputed account with positive history, you may see a small increasement to your rating. But if you have a dispute with negative claims, then you should expect to lose few points.

Content the Credit Bureaus:
Now that you have identified, the dispute comments you want to delete from your report, it’s time to take action. And by action, we mean that you should contact the credit bureaus. You can access the credit bureaus in three ways. Either by a handwritten letter, an email, or with a call. This varies according to which bureau you’re dealing with. For example, for TransUnion, a simple request via a regular phone call will do the work. On the other hand, it is believed that Equifax will respond better to your request for removing disputes, with a letter. Experian at the same time seems to be the most challenging among the three of them. It is more likely that you will need a combination of calls and letters in order to proceed.
