How to report to the credit bureaus?

Easiest way to report to the bureaus.

If you are a landlord and want to report your tenants rent to the three credit bureaus, we are here to help. Your tenets rental payments never benefit their credit score if they are NOT reported to the three bureaus. Until recently, there was no way for your tenets to get better credit scores by paying their rent on time. 

That changed with the three bureaus about a decade ago. So now, the credit bureaus can take your tenets positive payment history and have it reflected to the national credit bureaus. By doing so, it will help build their credit profile and raise their credit score. 

With your help as their landlord, we can get this information to the bureaus to help them get better car loan or credit card rates. Your tenets will be more likely to move in or stay with a landlord that helps them every month. Plus they will be more likely to pay their rent on time, knowing it is immediately reported to the credit systems.

  • Some landlords would prefer to handle the reporting process themselves. Here are some helpful tips to expedite the process. 

Things to know:

  1. To be an independent reporter to the credit bureaus, you have to have at least 1,000 units. That means you need at minimum of a thousand houses or apartments.
    • This excludes any small property owners who only own one or two rental properties and very large apartments that may have 300 or 400 units. They just don’t have enough tenets to report that data to the credit bureaus on their own. 

  2. You will need to contact and setup an account with each of the three credit bureaus.
    • There is an application fee. Good news, this application process is not terribly hard, but it will take 3-6 months to have your properties approved.
    • The credit bureaus will need to inspect your properties, which they will charge you about $60. During the inspection they will want to make sure the data and computers are secure, dead bolts on the doors, proper signage, plus various other things at the property.
    • You will need to send the data to the bureaus in the correct format. They will not accept anything other than Metro-2.

We would love to help you see your tenets rent payments reported to the credit bureaus and help them have a better credit score.
