Who Would Want To Participate In Our Rental Reporting Program?
Rebuilding Your Credit? We can help you rebuild your credit in a matter of days by reporting your last two years’ of on-time rent payments to TransUnion. The addition of this significant payment history will have a dramatic impact on your credit and allow you to move towards credit independence.
Want To Establish Credit? We add a new trade line to your credit report that reflects your on-time rental payment history. We add not just your on-time payments but we add the length of your rental payment history. How many years have you been renting a house or apartment? That length of credit history is not part of your credit report.
Buying A Home? We add a new trade line to your credit report that reflects your on-time rental payment history. We add not just your on-time payments but we add the length of your rental payment history. How many years have you been renting a house or apartment? That length of credit history is not part of your credit report. Your rent payment history both “thickens” your credit file with positive data that is taken into account and demonstrates your ability to repay your largest monthly obligation……. your rent.
There are 4 simple steps to the rent reporting process
Verification of your identity and rent payments: On your application, we need basic information such as your social security number, date of birth, address, and your landlord’s contact information. Your social security number ensures that your rent history is clearly matched with your credit profile.
Verification of your rent payments with your landlord: We work directly with your landlord to verify their identity and confirm your on-time rent payments both over the last 24 months, and in the months to come. For a fee of $50 each, we can also verify and report rent payments made to multiple landlords within the past 2 years.
Rent reporting to credit bureaus: Equifax and Transunion.
Tradeline creation on your credit report: A new tradeline is created on your credit report within 5-7 business days. You receive a notification when this is completed. As you continue to pay your rent each month, more information is added to this tradeline. This is why it is important to keep your subscription paid and current every month.

2 Vana Cash is a prepaid debit card issued by Community Federal Savings Bank (CFSB). Building credit with Vana Cash requires you to also open a virtual secured credit card with CFSB that is reported to the credit bureaus. Use money from your Vana Cash account to create a virtual secured credit card. Your debit card purchases are then added up to create a balance on your virtual secured credit card. As you make these purchases, an amount equal to the balance on your virtual secured credit card is also set aside in your Vana Cash account to ensure you can make timely payments to pay off the balance on your virtual secured credit card at the end of each month, allowing you to build a positive payment history. Credit Vana does not guarantee credit score improvement. Any predicted credit improvement from the use of your virtual secured credit card assumes that you will maintain healthy credit habits, including paying bills on time, keeping credit balances low, avoiding unnecessary inquiries, appropriate financial planning, and more.
