Collection
Updated
January 19, 2023
Unpaid debts that are transferred to a company's collections department or an outside collection agency are referred to as collection accounts. Collection accounts show on your credit report in order to alert lenders of your ability to repay debt. Unpaid collection accounts may prohibit you from obtaining a loan or reduce the amount of money your lender is willing to grant when applying for a mortgage.
