Debt Reporting Service - $11.95 One Letter Service


You can warn future landlords by reporting your former tenant to the credit bureaus if you don’t collect the debt. The tenant will be more motivated to pay off the money they owe you so that they can clean up their credit, especially if they want to rent or buy a house in the future.

The law requires that consumers be notified any time before, or within 30 days after, you report anything derogatory to the Credit Report Agency in substantially the following words: You are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit reporting agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit/rental obligations. Only one notification to the consumer is necessary.

More Information You Need to Know

Please note that not all credit bureaus have the same consumer information on the potential applicant.  While credit reports do have similar information, a late payment or more credit lines showing on only one could result in different FICO scores. These are important factors when considering a prospective tenant.

These factors make the FICO score:

  1. Payment history, how you make your payments in the past 35%
  2. Time in bureau, the amount of time you’ve been using credit 15%
  3. Types of credit, loans, bank credit cards, charge accounts, car loans, mortgage 10%
  4. New credit, when credit was opened and established 10%
  5. Debt to credit ratio, monthly obligations to the creditors 30%
