Reporting positive rent payments can help your credit scores



Dear Experian,

How can I report my rent payments? My landlord does not.



Dear TCR,

Experian is the first national credit reporting company to include positive rent payment information in its credit reports. Larger property management companies report directly through Experian’s RentBureau service. Today, though, even single unit property owners can report on-time payments for their tenants.

Experian works with and to facilitate reporting your rent payments, even if you are your landlord’s only tenant. To learn more about the services and how you can have your rent payments reported visit

Thanks for asking.
