How to Add Rent and Utilities to Your Credit Report
More than 43 million people in America pay rent, but you wouldn’t know it to look at their credit reports.
In fact, most rent and utility payments are not reported to the credit bureaus, which means you may not be getting credit for bills that you regularly pay.
Sign Up for ExtraCredit

Try Experian Boost

Use Other Third-Party Services
There are other third-party services that can help you add tradelines to your report, like RentReporters and SimpleBills.
Talk to Your Landlord
