Rent Reporting helps Housing Providers reduce their risk while rewarding great renters.
When to Pull a Credit Check on a Tenant?
The average Tenant credit score is 650, and the odds of getting a responsible tenant exceed 90%. However, when Housing Providers get Renters who pay late repeatedly, miss payments altogether, or damage the property beyond normal wear and tear, it can cost them an average of $11,000 per eviction.
To attract and choose the right Renters, Housing Providers need a thorough, consistent and reliable process to screen prospective new Tenants. Applying FrontLobby’s 7 Tenant Screening best practices can help Housing Providers lower their risk of a costly decision and feel confident about their incoming new Renters. Continue Reading
What is a Rental Credit Check?
A Rental Credit Check is typically used by a Landlord to evaluate a Renters likelihood to pay rent on time. They also reveal whether an applicant owes rent to any previous Housing Providers.
Lending institutions, and Housing Providers, use your credit score to determine your credit worthiness. The idea is that the higher yor credit score, the more likely you are to pay your bills. In the lending world, this means it’s easier for you to get a loan, with a lower interest rate. In the world of renting, the higher your score the more favorably you’ll be viewed by Landlords.
What is Included on a Tenant Credit Report?
A Tenant Credit Report includes both credit score as well as an applicant’s financial history. A credit score is a numerical representation of a person’s credit risk at any given time. A typical credit score ranges from 300-850, and higher scores are viewed as more favorable.
Landlords can find key pieces of financial information by performing a credit check on a Tenant during the Tenant Screening process, including, creditworthiness, typically based on credit score, payment history, outstanding loans, credit cards, or other debts, any accounts in collections as well as any public records, including bankruptcies and consumer proposals.

You may have received an invite from your Tenants. If this is the case, please use the link in the email invitation to sign up. It is free and only takes a few minutes. Once your account is complete you can log in to view your Tenant’s draft lease. Review the details and either approve or share required changes.
Even if your Tenant is the one to initiate rent reporting, your approval is required. This helps to ensure the integrity of the data.
FrontLobby aims to facilitate proactive and positive conversations between Housing Providers and Renters. 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 may 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 outlined here.
