Reporting Rental Payment Information to the Credit Bureau

Take advantage of the benefits that regularly reporting rental payment can provide.

Housing providers are poised to help their residents build credit by reporting rental payments to the major credit bureaus. Doing so benefits renters and landlords. Residents gain the opportunity to build credit without assuming additional debt through the establishment of a new, positive, active trade line on their traditional consumer credit report. Landlords gain a tool to offer a positive incentive for increasing on-time rent payments and a competitive advantage in recruiting new residents, and a credit building product around which they can wrap around services to residents with a means to measurably improve their credit profile and ultimately other financial outcomes.
