Do Experian credit reports now include rent information?

Dear James,

Please can you tell me if Experian credit reports now provide details of rent accounts? Thanks.

Lorraine, Cardiff

Dear Lorraine,

Experian reports don’t include rent information at the moment, but this is something we are working on.  We are in the process of developing The Rental Exchange, in partnership with the Big Issue Invest, which will bring tenants’ social housing rental payments into their credit histories to bolster credit and identity checks.  We are also working with Credit Ladder to do the same for private renters.  As most tenants pay their rent on time, this should provide a welcome boost to their credit scores, particularly those who previously had limited credit histories. Keep an eye out for further announcements. (August 2015, updated March 2017)
