Report Tenants to Credit BureauPositive and Negative Tenant History
The Landlord Protection Agency empowers members to report former and current tenant payment history, habits and behavior to national credit bureaus and our tenant reporting database. All consumer reporting is done in strict compliance with Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) guidelines.
The law requires that consumers are notified before or no later than 30 days after you post a derogatory report on them to a Credit Reporting Agency. The general language of the notification may be as follows: "You are hereby notified that a negative posting may be added to your credit report record in the event you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit or rental obligations." We recommend sending your former tenant The LPA collection letter, the Credit Reporting Disclosure Notice!
Note: All The LPA's forms are free with a Landlord Protection Agency membership!
Credit Bureau Posting Only
Bad debt / collection agency posting impacts tenant's credit record and creates incentive for the debt to be paid.
In addition to credit posting, we recommend sending your former tenant The LPA collection letter, the Credit Reporting Disclosure Notice!
(Up to 10 Postings FREE * for Members of The Landlord Protection Agency, then $9.99 per posting.)
* 10 per membership year. For example: a 5 year LPA membership = up to 50 postings free.
