Introducing Rent Reporting with Safely Finance


Limited credit history creates a lot of headaches. For example, it can feel impossible to find an apartment or rental home without a credit report. Many landlords and property managers require a credit check when you apply to lease a property. That means that without credit history you may not qualify.

Building credit history can be a challenge. Lenders may not want to give you credit without an established credit score. Without credit that helps you build credit history, credit bureaus may not be able to determine your credit score. So, how do you build credit history and get a credit score if you cannot get any credit in the first place? The whole system can feel circular.

Homeowners benefit from a consistent stream of large monthly payments reported by mortgage lenders. What about renters?
