Rent Reporting is one of the easiest ways for Landlords to reduce delinquencies and recover rental debt, while rewarding their responsible Tenants with improved credit. Rent Reporting to the Credit Bureaus can reduce delinquencies by 36% and significantly lower Tenant eviction rates. Tenants have reported 40+ point bumps in their credit scores in just a matter of months.
With FrontLobby rent payments can be shared with both Equifax and Landlord Credit Bureau and will be reflected on a Tenant’s Equifax Credit Report and LCB Tenant Record.
Good credit builds over time and requires a mixture of credit accounts. When rent payments are reported as a trade line on a Tenant’s Credit Report, they can build good credit and unlock credit related rewards faster.
Responsible Tenants can opt-in to see their rent payments build credit. When a rental agreement is broken with an intentional nonpayment, the delinquency will be shared with the Credit Bureaus and will show on the debtor’s Credit Report.

FrontLobby aims to facilitate proactive and positive conversations between Landlords, Property Managers and Tenants. When applicable, we encourage all parties to work towards a mutually agreeable payment plan.
If a payment plan is in place and a Tenant is paying according to the plan, no debts may be reported to the Credit Bureaus. Payments according to the payment plan should be recorded as being paid on time and the Tenant can use them to build their credit. However, if a Tenant stops paying according to the payment plan, the total outstanding debt may be recorded.
If a Tenant believes a debt is being reported when there is a payment plan in place, please follow our dispute process outline here. When submitting please attach a copy of the payment plan signed by both parties and proof of payment.
