My husband has a hospital debt from 2001. We paid a reasonable amount faithfully every month up until March 2010 even though we don't have a written agreement stating when and how much we are to pay. We haven't even received a bill for a few years now. We're trying to purchase a house and just found out the debt was sold to a collection agency this month and it's on our otherwise perfect credit report. Can they legally collect on a 9 year old debt? We live in Texas if that matters.
