Blakely-Witt is an apartment debt collector that reports to Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion as well as many other rental credit reporting agencies. Often because of their entry on your credit report you may not be able to obtain a mortgage or rent a new apartment. Our law firm can be hired to to help you resolve this debt with a possibility of removing it from the credit report.

Our law firm can be hired to help resolve credit report problems with Blakely-Witt. Since day one,  we have been helping Louisiana consumers, like you, resolve issues with apartment debt collectors. Once hired we interview you to see what happened. Given the scenario we can make a recommendation on how to proceed. We will request the apartment lease and all pertinent documents from Blakely-Witt. We evaluate using your scenario, Louisiana Civil Codes,  and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) statutes. Sometimes you may need to settle, especially if we find no violations of law. If you settle, then we create an agreement for Blakely-Witt or their client to sign that releases you from the remaining balance not paid and describes how the apartment collection will be reported on your credit report. We know you want the negative apartment collection removed from your credit report and rental databases if you settle.
