Are you a Renter in the Seattle area? If you rent an apartment and pay the landlord on time every month, you get no boost to your score — zip.
That is, unless your landlord reports rent payments to the national credit bureaus.
Without a major positive such as rent payments in their files, a missed payment on a credit card or auto loan could have significant negative effects on your credit scores! Sometimes, the only positive thing on your credit report COULD be your stead, regular and on-time rent payments.
