Build Credit History Through On-time Rental Payments
On-time rental payments now help boost credit scores
In December 2010, Experian® became the first credit reporting agency to include on-time rental payment data on its credit reports. This unique data set, collected by Experian RentBureau and reported on Experian credit reports, can empower many Americans to build their credit history. Simply by paying their rent on time, responsible renters — including students, immigrants and displaced homeowners — may now have the opportunity to gain access to mainstream credit products that they deserve.
Key Benefits to Consumers
- Establish or rebuild your credit history — You now have the opportunity to make your consistent on-time rental payments count toward establishing or building your credit history
- Improve your ability to qualify for credit products — Your on-time rental payment history can be leveraged when applying for credit products and services
Uses of Rental Payment Data
Experian® RentBureau® receives updated rental payment data every 24 hours from property management companies across the nation. This data is accessed by resident screening companies for use during the application process for prospective residents. Continuous on-time rental payment data also may be incorporated within Experian credit reports, which are used by various types of credit-granting institutions, including banks, auto finance companies and telecommunications providers.
Get “Credit” for Paying Your Rent on Time
We believe that responsible renters should get credit for managing their rental payments. That’s why we work with various property management companies and rental payment services across the nation to provide renters this unique opportunity to build credit history through consistent on-time rental payments. If you currently rent or are considering renting, check with your property management company if they report their rental payment data to Experian RentBureau.
If you rent from an individual landlord or property management company that does not report their data, you may still have the opportunity to have your rental payments reported to Experian. All you and your landlord need to do is sign up through a rental payment service working with Experian RentBureau. These services allow for the payment and collection of your rent electronically. And as an added benefit, you have the ability to opt-in to reporting your rental payment history to Experian.
