How FrontLobby Works for Landlords
Rent Reporting Helps Landlords Run Successful Businesses
Credit Reports and Tenant Records
Motivate and Reward On-time Payments
Recover Rental Debt
Find the Right Tenant
FrontLobby provides Landlords with the tools they need to choose the best Tenants. Credit Reports from FrontLobby are easy to read, fast and affordable. With an applicant’s permission to pull their Credit Report, you will receive a long-form report that includes credit score, current and former addresses, employment confirmation, credit history (tradelines), credit balances, collections, bankruptcies, and inquiries.
FrontLobby’s Credit Reports are the only report to include Tenant Records from Landlord Credit Bureau. Tenant Records include payment history and previous Landlord’s contact information.
Motivate and Reward On-Time Payments
FrontLobby’s Rent Reporting tool allows Landlords to report monthly rent payments to the Credit Bureaus. Landlords who offer Rent Reporting help to reduce the time it takes for responsible Tenants to unlock and access future credit-related rewards.
Responsible Tenants can opt-in to use their largest monthly expense to build credit and unlock the benefits of good credit. When a rental agreement is broken by an intentional nonpayment, the debt will be shared with the Credit Bureaus and will show on the debtor’s Credit Report.
Recover Former Tenant Debt
FrontLobby provides peace of mind for Landlords facing the financial stress of former tenant debt. Landlords can report rental debt to the Credit Bureaus for the purpose of collecting the outstanding balance. The debt will show on the Tenant’s Credit Report until it is cleared.
Landlords who have been burdened with unpaid rent can stop chasing their former Tenants. With Collect, Landlords can inform their former tenants of the impact a debt has on their credit. Tenants with outstanding rent payments are motivated to contact you directly.
For Tenants who wish to clear the rental debt but require additional time, FrontLobby enables Landlords to register payment plans. When both the Landlord and Tenant agree, a payment plan can be a win-win, Tenants can still build credit while Landlords can reduce their tenant debt.

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.

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.

Due to the evolving economic and regulatory landscape around eviction moratoriums, rental assistance, and rental payment policies, FrontLobby does not allow Landlords or Property Managers to report Covid-19 pandemic debts in the United States. This policy is to ensure Landlords and Tenants are protected and compliant with local regulations.
A Covid-19 debt is defined as unpaid rent caused by the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic incurred between April 1, 2020, and September 30, 2021.
In the case of debts, we encourage all parties to explore government programs for rental payment assistance or explore a payment plan option. Additional information on how we facilitate payment plans may be found here.
If the debt was not caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, or there is a monetary judgment or ruling, or the debtor has violated the agreed upon payment plan, then debts may be reported to the Credit Bureaus.
