Not BS since they are separate entities they can only request it. Truth is, the cra will delete it, but they just put that protection in there just in case. Almost every single agreement that’s a release at at least will say that, even if it’s just updating the tradeline. As previous poster said just asking for the form they filed with cra they will give that
I'm in similar situation here.
I've asked them to provide a copy of the universal data form they will be sending in to the CRAs. If it is not removed I will dispute it and provide the form and writing I have in the agreement.
Looking good! I would proceed as normal until you see your online case file updated. But sure seems like they're throwing up the white flag, congrats!!
I wouldn't expect them to take another run at you. They want easy defaults & settlements - you showed them you know what your doing and they don't want any part of that. They can always sell it to someone else, but you can deal with that if it comes up.
Once it's officially dismissed, you can get the process going for recovering your costs (filing fees) and rub some salt in that wound!
