Credit Reporting Rental Payment History Helps Both Tenants and Landlords
Consumers are motivated to pay their credit card bills and loans on time each month because they know that account will be reported to the credit bureaus and if they pay late their credit score will go down. Most landlords don’t know they too can report on-time and late rent payments on a consumer’s credit report. Rather than waiting to take a tenant to court or using a collecting agency, you can let the credit bureaus know as soon as there is a missed payment. This can have an immediate impact on the tenant’s credit score, motivating them to stay on track. You can also reward tenants by reporting timely rent payments, which helps build their credit and improve their credit score so they can get better interest rates and qualify for homeownership in the future.
