Landlords can report your monthly payments to credit bureau. Talk with your landlord and ask if they report your rent payments. If they are not already doing so, go to www.experian.com/buildcredithistory to learn how your landlord can report your positive rent payment to Experian.
Having positive rent payments reported to Experian can be incredibly helpful for people who are trying to build their credit history for the first time or who are recovering from difficulties. Any landlord can report their tenants' positive rent payments regardless of whether they have one rental unit or hundreds.
