Landlord Credit Bureau Reviews

95% of Landlord Credit Bureau's tenants are building credit and a positive rental record by simply paying rent on-time.

Learning I could improve my credit by paying my rent just made sense. I am so happy I read about LCB and now I am one step closer to buying my own home.

My existing tenants are excited to hear that their biggest expense each month (rent) will now be reflected in their credit report. Likewise, they are aware of the consequences if they don't pay future rent on time.

Landlord, Ontario

Its about time that landlord's and tenants have access to a service like LCB!

CEO, Durham REI

I have 2 tenants who are new to Canada and no credit. This is a perfect program to help them get established and build credit…. I'm a new landlord and I feel this elevates my status by doing something nice for my tenants.

Landlord, Ontario

LCB has worked wonderfully for us, and our current tenants are excited to have their credit scores improving …. Former tenants paid their overdue amounts expeditiously …

Property Manager, Ontario

I think that the LCB offers an excellent service to help struggling landlords find and keep great tenants, avoid the wrong tenants, and encourage mediocre tenants to become good ones.

I can't see any reason why a landlord wouldn't use and value the devices of the LCB.

Landlord, Ontario

67% of tenants will choose a property with rent reporting.

I was worried about how much time it would take. But in a few minutes a month I can update the tenant records I need to with late payments and everything else takes care of itself.

Within the first 7 minutes I had a phone call from the first tenant apologizing for forgetting about the invoices and agreeing to a repayment plan.

Landlord, Ontario

A few months ago we had a landlord hire us as their PM company. Their tenants were continually late with rent and advised her they could not pay until the 18th. After signing them up for LCB rent came early last month and this month ... worked for us!

Property Manager, Ontario

LCB has helped me throughout my journey as a tenant. LCB’s platform is easy to use and they have great customer service. Highly recommended!

Tenant, Texas

I add the Lease Clauses to every new application. All my tenants know I report rent payments to LCB and understand this can help them with future credit needs.

Landlord, Virginia

Good tenants deserve to be recognized. I have many who pay on time and treat my property and me with respect. Using Landlord Credit Bureau, I am able to do something extra to help them.

Property Manager, British Columbia

After hours of chasing and many late payment notices I signed up for LCB hoping my tenant would finally respond. I reported $3,600 in late rent, three days after the tenant received a notice from LCB they settled their debt in full.

Reviews of Landlord Credit Bureau

Attracting the right tenants saves an average of $11,000 per eviction.

I want to stand out as a landlord who is helping their tenants. A tenant asked if I would start reporting their rent as a way for them to build credit. Now I offer this to all my tenants.

It takes a few minutes per month and saves me hours of time and the migraines from chasing bad tenants.

Landlord, New Jersey

99% of our tenants pay on time, using LCB rewards these tenants and sets us apart from other property management companies. We get the best tenants because of LCB!

Property Manager, Illinois

When I moved, I brought LCB to my new landlord hoping they would start reporting my rent. Now I can build my credit without any extra effort.

Tenant, Florida

I have been paying rent on time for the last 15 years. Before joining LCB my rent payment was not getting added to my credit reports and was not improving my credit. Now my rent payment is helping to improve my credit score. Great job Landlord Credit Bureau.

Tenant, Indiana

I have been a customer of Landlord Credit Bureau for the last 6 months. They have helped me build good credit score and it is so much easier to get new rentals when landlords can view my positive history.



Tenant, Ohio

The Landlord Credit Bureau has helped me build a positive tenant record to use toward future rentals. I am looking forward to having a certificate of satisfactory tenancy to show future landlords.

Steve
Landlord

I was really excited to hear that I could improve me credit standing through submitting rental reports. It has been effortless, and I'm happy to report I'm very glad about the service I receive with The Landlord Credit Bureau. It was easy to get my landlord on board, and the LCB makes it very user friendly and easy to submit reports. Thank you!

Stephanie, Tenant

This is a fantastic value-added tool that we're excited to be using. As property managers, it helps to reduce our risk but the bonus is that our clients and our tenants gain just as much from it as we do.



Jason, Vionell Holdings

I inform my tenants in the application and on their lease that I use the services of the LCB. Just doing that has helped me weed out bad tenants and has helped 2 of my tenants purchase their own homes with their good credit history. Win-win.


Carlo, Landlord

I'm asking my landlord to sign up for this currently (LCB)!! I've been paying on time and in full for 3 years, I'd love it to go towards my credit score.





Candice, Tenant

East Vista Management has recently implemented the services of the Landlord Credit Bureau to help tenants build their Tenant Record and the feedback has been incredible!





Kim, Property Manager

My landlord signed me up which I am happy about. I never knew it even existed which I’m happy it does since my credit was average. Knowing it would help me grow it would be amazing. I’ve seen an increase since they have been reporting. I’m extremely comfortable with how they went and asked me about it.

Patrick, Tenant
Getting setup on the program was very easy, and when we reviewed my credit report after the first month of setting it up my credit score had increased 37 points. I was shocked it would have such a positive impact on my credit score in such a short amount of time.

We have excellent tenants so they had nothing to lose by having this included in their credit report.

I just bought a property and have had some communication issues with the tenants. Within an hour of the automated email going out one of the tenants finally replied to my previous emails.



Mike, Landlord

I have 2 tenants who are new to the country and no credit. This is a perfect program to help them get established and build credit…. I'm a new landlord and I feel this elevates my status by doing something nice for my tenants.



Kamal, Landlord

We had over $140k of bad debt, that we pretty well had given up on. Within a couple of months we collected on debts that will pay our LCB for the next 5 years. I'm looking towards the day all landlords are using LCB.



Gord, Landlord

I just checked my credit score, and it has increased by over 40 points. Didn’t you just sign me up a month ago? THANK YOU!

Rent can now count toward your credit score -- for better or worse

Today, Killam is doing something about it. As CEO of the for-profit Landlord Credit Bureau (LCB), he inked a deal with credit rating agency Equifax that will allow tenants to have their rent payments count towards their credit score.

Program helps mom-and-pop real estate investors struggling to collect rent, pay their mortgages

If there’s one misconception about landlords, it’s that they’re rich. While many do eventually make the ascension from mortal and mogul, most real estate investors own, or are still paying off, a relatively small assemblage of residential properties.
