tenant vacated owing rent by Lynne N (CO) on July 18, 2011 @12:53

My tenant vacated my premises without paying rent. What steps do I need to take to put a unpaid balance of $1750.00 on their credit report?

Any assistance you can give me I will appreciate.

Was there any damages, repairs or cleaning to be done? Did you have a deposit? Did your tenant have an annual lease that he broke or was he paying month to month? What state are you in? Have you changed the locks?

You need to check your state laws. Each state has its own rules, but generally, you have to give a full accounting to the lessee. You have to mail it to their known address or last known address. Again, check your state laws!

The only real answer to your actual question is, you must charge the unpaid rent against the tenant's SD and then file a claim for damages (unpaid rent & any physical damage to the property) in court for the remaining balance due. Once you have a judgment, the credit bureaus will pick it up in the normal course of their data reporting business.
