FAQ

Which credit bureaus are my on-time rent payments reported to?

We report your 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 FICO credit score. You can learn more about the TransUnion’s ResidentCredit program here. https://www.transunion.com/product/residentcredit

Why should I report my on-time rent payments to TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax?

Typically, credit bureaus use credit cards and loan payments (such as student or home loans) to assess credit scores.

However, with RentRedi, you can now report your on-time rent payments to credit bureaus as well!

With rent being a large monthly payment, you can increase your credit score with rent payments you are already making!

Additionally, a high credit score can mean access to lower interest rates for car, home & other loans, waived or reduced deposits to open utility or cell phone accounts, increased credit limits, and overall positions you as a more attractive tenant.

How soon will I see a boost in my credit score?

Payments are reported to the credit bureau every week. Once your rent is reported to TransUnion, it typically takes 5-30 days to show on your credit history!

How do I start reporting rent?

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

What is the cost to report my rent payments to TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax?

For current tenants, there are 3 options. Regardless of the option you select, TransUnion recommends reporting 12 months of payments to make the most impact on your FICO credit score.

**Note: Experian only records the current month and prior rent payment history will not be reported by Experian.

Entire Lease

You can report on-time payments for your entire lease at once. This includes all future payments & the option to add all past payments made through RentRedi for the price of $3.99/mos.

The cost for reporting an entire lease at once can be up to a one-time payment of up to $47.88 (for reporting 12 months) to increase your credit score by up to 26 points.

3-Months

You can choose to report your on-time payments every 3-months, costing $4.99/mos. The cost for reporting 3 months of rent payments costs $14.97.

Monthly

The most flexible option is that you can choose to report your on-time payments every month. This pay-as-you-go option costs a recurring $5.99/mos.
