How much will my credit score rise?

It’s impossible to predict. Credit scores are based on individual situations. On the lower end, I’ve seen mid-twenties and all the way up to 88 points on the higher end. As you continue to report, it will increase your score over time, as well. However, we guarantee that it will have a positive impact on your score.

What if I’m late with my rent?

Technically rent payments are only late if it’s over 30 days past due. As long as you pay before 30 days, it is considered on time on your credit report.

How long does it take to show on my credit report?

Our clients typically see results in 14 – 30 days from the time we receive verification from their landlord.

How will rent appear on my credit report?

It depends on which credit service you use to view your report. Rent payments usually appear as an open trade line.

Does my landlord need to participate?

Yes, your landlord or property manager needs to participate. However, we make it so easy that most landlords have no problem at all helping out.

Where do I pay my rent?

With Rent to Credit you continue to pay your rent directly to your landlord, or as you have in the past. Other companies require you to make your rent payments to them.

What if I split rent?

Just continue to pay as you always have, and we’ll verify your half.

What if I’m married?

Check to see whose name is on the lease agreement so that we can verify it. If your spouse is also on the lease, then you should add them to this benefit, as well.

What if I sublease?

As long as the landlord or property manager verifies that rent was paid – that’s fine.

What if I rent from parents or family?
That’s fine. As long as you have a lease in place and that it can be verified.

Why can’t I report my rent payments myself?

A renter cannot report his or her rent payment. A neutral third party with a contract to the CRA’S can only report.

Are there any hidden fees?
There are no hidden fees, our one-time enrollment of $99.95 includes reporting of up to 24 months of rental history. If you have a roommate or spouse, we can report to their credit as well and we’ll take $25 off each enrollment for a savings of $50 on your order. That’s it! No surprises.
