Most Renters’ Payments are not Being Reported to Credit Bureaus

A recent article by DS News says only 36% of property managers who are aware of the practice of reporting rent payments to the three major credit agencies are actually doing it.  The cited data comes from a TransUnion Tenant & Employment business department report.  Interestingly, they add that the 36% of property managers who are reporting this information has increased 37% year-over-year.   The top reasons cited for reporting rent payments were to help residents build their credit scores (86%), followed by encouraging residents to pay on time (52%).
