When starting the credit repair process for your clients, you will begin with a Round 1 letter in most cases. This is by far the most widely used and effective letter to use to go after the low-hanging fruit, and again should be your very first move when going after items on a credit report. Which letter to send for Round 2, 3, 4, and higher depends on the client's particular situation and how the credit bureaus respond to the Round 1 letter.
In this article, you will learn about:
- Using the Letter Finder Tool for Round 2 and other letters
- Get the 5 dispute letter templates every Credit Hero needs FREE!
- Free Basic Disputing Course
- Can the letters be modified?
- Can a letter be modified just for one client?
To start, make sure you have the following:
Using the Letter Finder Tool for Round 2 and other letters
For Round 2 (and higher), there are over 100 letters you can choose from. As mentioned above, the letter selection depends on the client’s specific scenario and the bureau’s response to the Round 1 letter. You can also try our Letter Finder Tool to find the best letter to use.

Can the letters be modified?
Yes, absolutely! You can modify all the master letter templates in the Library, but you may want to hold off on that until you know your way around the software. Changing the letters will not make them any more successful. They are intentionally simple, and simple is best. Adding legalese to them is not recommended because then the letters won't seem like they're coming from your client anymore, and that's the whole point.
Can a letter be modified just for one client?
Yes! When you're working in the Dispute Wizard, the very last step is the Letter Editor. In this step, you can type any last-minute text to customize your letter on the fly (before you save and print).
