1. Settlement is not the same as Full Payment. And in your case it is a "Written Off" status which is still bad.

2. You messed your credit history by ignoring when they raised the bill. Why didn't you report the card as stolen ? Why didn't you dispute the charges ? When you have filed no such complaint, can the Bank Trust you ?

3. Nothing Wrong in Going for home Loan, but I doubt you will get it with such bad credit behavior.

You must try to maintain the balance between loans and your assets. Having a history like this will actually send negative signals to lending institutions and will you may face problems getting a loan.
