How Do Credit Bureau Collections Work?
FrontLobby enables Landlords to report rent not paid by former Tenants to the Credit Bureaus. As a result, until the debtor pays in full, the rent debt will show on their Credit Report and their credit score may be impacted. This provides incentive for the former Tenant to communicate and ensure the debt is resolved.
With Debt Reporting, Housing Providers can inform former Tenants of the impact a debt has on their credit. For those who wish to clear the rent debt but require additional time, FrontLobby enables Landlords to register payment plans.
Collecting Unpaid Rent After A Tenant Moves Out
Collecting unpaid rent after a Tenant moves out can be both time consuming and stressful. Your business could suffer due to this loss of income and countless hours could be spent trying to recover rent not paid.
Many Housing Providers do not know how to collect rent after a Tenant moves out without paying or without notice. Their options typically include small claims court, collecting through a bank levy, wage garnishment, or hiring a debt collections agency.
An alternative method is to report the rent debt to Credit Bureaus for the purpose of collecting the outstanding balance, once reported the rent debt will show on the Tenant’s Credit Report.
Report A Tenant to A Collection Agency
Landlords can report a former Tenant to a debt collection agency to help recover unpaid rent. However, most collection agencies work on commissions and the Landlord will owe a percentage of the debt, typically 30-50%, to the collection agency.
When Housing Providers choose to report rent not paid to the Credit Bureaus through FrontLobby they can keep 100% of the debt recovered. FrontLobby empowers Housing Providers to report the rent debt, it does not negotiate payments, arrange payments or handle payments.

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.

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.
