FAQ

Which credit bureau are my tenant’s on-time rent payments reported to?

We report your tenant’s on-time rent payments to TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. TransUnion is the same company that does credit & background screening for new tenants on RentRedi. They use the information to increase your tenant’s FICO credit score. You can learn more about the TransUnion’s ResidentCredit program here.

Why should I offer my tenant the option to report their on-time rent payments to TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax?

Offering your tenants the option to report their on-time rent payments to credit bureaus can be a valuable incentive for them to pay consistently on time. Using RentRedi, your tenants can report their rent payments to TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. This can play a crucial role in positively impacting their credit scores. Higher credit scores can offer your tenants numerous benefits like lower interest rates for loans, reduced deposits for utilities, and an enhanced reputation as a reliable tenant. Covering this service for your tenant can be a compelling amenity that sets you apart from other landlords.

How soon will my tenant see a boost in their credit score after reporting?

Payments are reported to the credit bureau weekly. Once a rent payment is reported to TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax on behalf of your tenant, it typically takes between 5-30 days to reflect on their credit history.

How can my tenant start reporting their rent?

From the RentRedi Tenant app, your tenant needs to select “Rent”, then “Report Rent” and follow the provided options.

How can my tenant turn off or remove the rent reporting to TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax?

If you want to stop reporting rent payments, contact us at support@rentredi.com.

Can my tenant build their credit history with RentRedi?

Absolutely! When your tenant starts reporting rent to the TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax credit bureaus through RentRedi, all their on-time rent payments can contribute to building their credit score. They can report all payments made through RentRedi as long as they are using the app. Note: Manual payments aren’t reportable from RentRedi.

How does the rent reporting process work?

After your tenant initiates rent reporting, RentRedi shares all on-time rent payments securely with TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax then use this information to adjust and update your tenant’s FICO credit score.

My tenant already has a high credit score. Do they need this service?

Even if your tenant already has a good credit score, an increase of up to 26 points can potentially move them to a higher credit tier, offering them even more financial benefits. You can check out the credit score tiers here.
