Make your on-time
payments show on your credit profile.
Building credit doesn’t start and end with your credit card or loan payments. In fact, your credit history is probably missing a few simple payments that could add more to your credit and impact your credit score.
43 million people in America pay rent. Many aren’t getting credit for their on-time payment history. If you pay rent and utilities on time, it's time to get them added to your credit profile to show your good payment history. In fact, payment history is one of the biggest contributors to your credit score.
With Build It, you can add your monthly payment for rent, utilities, and even your phone bill as credit tradelines on your credit report. No need to contact your lender to get them to do it for you.
If you have bad credit or poor credit, rent reporting can help you add more to your credit history and help you work your way up to a good credit profile.
How Build It works
Connect to your financial institution
We start by securely connecting to your bank account to identify your rent payments & utility payments. In fact, we look through your payment history so each qualifying past monthly payment can be used to help build your credit profile.
Establish credit reporting for your payments
Next, we facilitate a connection with each credit reporting agency so that your payments are added to your credit report. This way you don’t have to depend on your landlord to do it for you.
Build up your credit profile
Your payments should then show up on your credit report and lead to a stronger credit profile. We’ll continue to send your payment history to the major credit bureaus so you can continue to build credit by adding your payments to your credit history.
Better than basic reporting
We're not the only company to offer rent and utility reporting. But we are the only company to combine this way to build your credit profile with total credit coverage through our five incredible credit coverage tools.
